A Note from the President – April 2016

Monday, April 4, 2016

Let the New Year begin! As we all work together to achieve the goals to take our local association to a new height, I am truly excited about working with all of you to accomplish these goals.

I want to take this opportunity to thank Donnie Harp, President and Lisa Pate, Executive Director of FRSA for swearing in our 2016 – 2017 board.

I also want to thank our board members in advance for committing their time and hard work for the betterment of our association. Our Board Members are:

  • Alvin Singleton
  • Chuck Floyd, Vice President
  • Chris Rajala
  • David Mull
  • Josh Brown
  • Joe Capotosto
  • Katie Boulton
  • Krystal Amick
  • Kurt Stapleton, Immediate Past President
  • Lynette Dickson
  • Tom Jacques

  • I also want to thank every one of you that came out to support our association as we launched our new season with a few more Hopes, Wishes, and Dreams for SMRSMCA.

    In order to keep our goals in the forefront of everyone’s mind I have included them.

  • Building Membership
  • Continual education Meetings – goal is to have at least three this year.
  • Review and up-date the Disaster Preparedness & Response Company Hand book for SMRSMCA Members – Companies Working Together.
  • More involvement and in-sight from the members in regards to our yearly charity roof.
  • Chris and the team will work on our site and the goal is too keep the calendar and the site up to date.
  • I promise that the board will always have an open ear to your concerns and opinions in regards to your local association. What I cannot promise is that we may not always have a solution to each problem.

  • Please do not forget to place our next dinner meeting on your schedules. It is Tuesday, April 26th @ 6:00 pm. We plan to have OSHA in the house. You should receive an invite approximately two weeks prior to the meeting date.

    Also, board members please schedule yourselves accordingly for the next board lunch meeting on April 5th @ 11:30.

    Again, I look forward to the accomplishments that we will make as a team this year!


    April Dacas, President

    REMINDER: Do not forget to tell someone about our association and what we are doing for our industry and community.
