It’s that time! Hope all enjoyed the May meeting?
Everyone MUST E-Mail George B. Swietczak at email@example.com ASAP so we know the head count for lunch!
These are the Items which require general membership consideration and vote.
Please give thought to the following, and please prepare your questions. If you wish, forward them to Jack or myself for advance preparation.
1 – At the most recent board meeting it was discussed that ICCA appears to be moving to a position in opposition to the Illinois Plumbing License Law, but is requiring IPIA to pay the annual membership fee which exceeds $3,000.00.
We will need for Jerry, Gary, Jay and David to relate their observations from the recent ICCA meeting in Peoria.
a – ICCA has directed the lobbyist Margret Vaughn to lobby against the ‘Certified Inspector ‘requirement.
b – ICCA has requested a committee be formed to explore plumbing code issues – ‘Do we remain members’ to have a say on this committee which appears to not be interested in our comments – David Dertz to explain at meeting.
c – Should we as a Chapter AND Organization instead place our full support behind PHCC, which has consistently and very strongly supported the ‘License Law’ by each of us becoming paid members of PHCC?
d – We need to discuss both sides of being and not being members of ICCA.
2 – To the best of my knowledge no credible written challenge has been put forth by any member of IPIA to require a reelection of the current board and officers?
If I am in error on this matter, please forward the written challenge to the most recent election.
Do we need to have another election?
Thank you in advance for taking the time to review and consider these serious issues,
George B. Swietczak
