Member Scott Hirstein from Tri-City Electric was awarded the 2019-2020 SPY (Safety Professional of the Year) for our Quad Cities Chapter. Way to go Scott! This was the first time (or in a long time) that our Chapter has recognized a SPY. Please consider applying or nominating someone for our Chapter SPY later in the year when the application period starts.
If you would like to get more involved in our Chapter, have an idea for a technical meeting, and/or are trying to recruit a new member, please let us know. No matter the extent, your individual support will go a long ways to make our Chapter even better.
