March 2013 Meeting

March's Meeting was Hosted and Sponsored by Maggie Utsey and Pieper-Houston Electric. Our meeting was also attended by Members of the Association of Chief Operating Engineers (A.C.O.E). We will also be sharing next month's meeting at Scott Equipment with members of the ACOE. Joe Cuellar, Piepers Safety Director, gave a presentation on the proper steps for the maintenance of electrical curcuits and equipment. Very informative, we were shown very graffic pictures that makes you think twice, before working on a energized curcuit or piece of equipment.

Pieper-Houston Electric is a full service Electrical Contractor. Their shop/offices are very organized and well stocked to handle any electrical needs that we may have. You can contact Maggie at 713-984-9342.

What a great start to 2013. Tom Hines the new Director of Engineering at the Royal Sonesta "formerly the Intercontinental Hotel "has set a high standard for the meetings to follow. After an hour of networking with Vendors and Fellow Engineers, we were served a plated dinner including a salad, the main course was steak you could cut with a fork, braised shrimp, vegtables and scalloped potatoes. Dessert was cheese cake & fruit, and coffee to follow. The wait staff was gracious and very attentive. After a presentation by Richard Holmes of McCrory Engineering "who also helped Sponsor the event" , door prizes very giving out. Thanks to Brian Anderson of Massey Pest Control Services, Tom Ballou with Firetron & Richard Holmes with McCrory Engineering for their generous donations.

One Highlight of the meeting was the new HFD Inspectors have started conducting inspections. They are very through, so have all your inspections and permits current. They are taking the keys from the Fire Depository Box and conducting a walk through to see if the keys open what they should. So get ready.
