Hello Elevator Industry and Friends!

I attended the February Annual General Meeting for the Elevator & Escalator Safety Foundation in Atlanta, Georgia. I attended the New Board Member Orientation presentation given by the foundations Vice Chairman John Koshak. A thorough overview of the foundations History, Board, Organization, Programs, Financial, and Fund raising were reviewed. We were able to witness the foundations Safe-T Rider program. This is the program that the foundation uses to educate over 500,000 children in the USA, and over 40,000 in Canada on the safe and proper use of elevators, escalators, and moving walks. The program was presented at the Charles L. Gideons Elementary school in Atlanta Georgia to it's 2nd grade students. The presenters of the program were the Chairman of the foundation Robert Merlo Jr., and as Safe-T (the Cat programs character) the club's own Steve Romnes. I had the opportunity to attend the EESFc Board of Directors meeting which is our Canadian brothers. They also thoroughly reviewed the Budgets, Financial,and Fund raising of their foundation.




The secound day we got to work attending to the foundations business at hand in the annual Board meeting. A thorough overview of the foundations Bugets, Financial, and Fund raising were reviewed. The last order of business of the foundation was the swearing in of the new Board members of the foundation. The new executive officers are Chairman John Koshak, Vice Chairman Tom Sybert, Treasurer Gary Saxon, and Secretary Ricia Hendrick.
