Successful ASSE Regional Operating Committee (ROC) meeting in Burbank!

Mark Stone, Dave Paoletta, Amanda Shin, Will Valdriz, and I attended the bi-annual ROC 1 held in Burbank, CA on September 21 and 22. The ROC is an opportunity for presidents and other key officers from the 19 chapters that comprise Region 1 to learn and decide on ways to improve chapters at the local level. We voted to add three area directors to the region to assist the Regional Vice President (RVP) in providing service to the chapters, similar to what other regions already do. Dan Hopwood, our current RVP, has to travel to 19 chapters in the 24 months of his term, quite a feat for a volunteer position on top of his day job! You will have an opportunity to meet Dan next spring when he visits our chapter. The highlight of the meeting was a dinner and private tour of Air Force One at the Ronald Reagan Library in Simi Valley.
