WELCOME TO THE MSA!
I am pleased to welcome all members to our organization.
We are here to support you. We are the Maintenance Superintendents
Association of the Inland Empire/Desert Chapter. As an organization,
we are committed to the success and education of all our
members. Our values and integrity are displayed through
our professionalism, knowledge, dedication and commitment
to the agencies and businesses we serve. This organization
is an effective network system for municipal managers, supervisors,
and vendors to communicate, educate, and provide pertinent
information to the organizations and agencies we serve.
The Inland Empire/Desert Chapter meets the 4th Thursday
of every month, and has an educational topic for the benefit
of those in attendance. Also, at each meeting vendor members
have an opportunity to promote their represented companies
with “Vendor on a Soapbox”. We will also host Administrative
Professional Appreciation Day in April, a Vendor Appreciation
Day in October, and scholarship awards every June.
Our goal is to educate and provide support to all chapter
members. Our Chapter continually sponsors and subsidizes
classes and workshops to provide essential training that
is available to all members. We are committed to safety,
knowledge, and awareness in the functions of public works.
To promote a career in the field public works, we have scholarships
available for students attending educational institutions
majoring in public works. Scholarship applications are due
in April and awarded every June at the general meeting.
This Chapter also sponsors a training and trade show where
vendor members have the opportunity to display equipment,
tools, and materials available for use in public services.
The trading and trade show also hosts educational and training
workshops focused on general maintenance service workers.
An Annual Golf Tournament is held in June with all proceeds
going to our scholarship fund. This past year the Chapter
gave out over $4,000.00 to students pursuing a college education
related to Public Works. We hope to see everyone there for
a day of fun competition and generous support of this worthy
In closing, I consider myself fortunate to be a part of
this outstanding organization. I have gained lasting
professional and personal relationships, and more
importantly, gained a network of information and
educational resources. I look forward to serving with
all of you and our chapter, in promoting the ongoing
success of this organization.
