    Hello Members and the Elevator Industry

    I am happy to inform you that I recently became a member of the Board of Directors of the Elevator & Escalator Safety Foundation. I attended the February Annual General Membership Meeting in Atlanta, Georgia. I attended as a Board Nominee the New Board Member Orientation presentation given by 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 a year on the safe and proper use of elevators, escalators, and moving walks. The program was presented at the Liberty School of Canton, Georgia to its 2nd grade students. The presenters of the program were the Chairman of the foundation Robert Merlo Jr., and as the CAT ( programs character ) the club's own Steve Romnes. Congratulations go out to Steve as he is now also a new member of the Board of Directors. 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 second day we got to work attending to the foundations business at hand in the annual Board meeting. A thorough overview of the foundations Budgets, Financial, and fund raising were reviewed. A Stategic Planning Session was held throughout the remainder of the meeting focusing on Marketing, Fund Raising, and Expanding the Program Scope. The last order of business of the foundation was the swearing in of the new Board members of the foundation.

    We now have a voice!

     

    Ride Safe :-)

    The first Annual Poker Run was a success as we had a total of 70 hands played. Not to bad for a 50/50 winning hand was a flush of hearts King high by Noreen Montesano of Merrick, NY. Thanks to the NAEC, Elevator World, PSI and C.J. Anderson for helping make this event a success. The PSI/ERRC Won best single booth award proving that the cause we are promoting was well received. $1750.00 was collected which was a great way to kick off the ERRC while at the same time raise funds for the EESF. If you haven't already joined do so today. You don't need a bike to join.
