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 and all of us are committed to the success and education to all of 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 presents 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”. The Chapter also hosts Administrative Professional Appreciation Day, a Golf Tournament, Vendor Appreciation Day and scholarship awards every year.
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 pertaining to 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.
A Chapter Annual Golf Tournament is held in June with all proceeds going to our scholarship recipients. We hope to see everyone there for a day to both relax and benefit a great cause.
The Inland Empire/Desert Chapter will host the 50th Maintenance Superintendents Association State Conference October 2nd – 5th, 2018 at Fantasy Springs Convention Center, Indio CA.
In closing, I am honored and fortunate to be a part of this organization. I have gained lasting professional relationships, and more importantly, gained a network of information, and means of education and training. I look forward to serving with all of you and our chapters, and to promote the success of this organization. Thank You!
