We know people have busy lives, so we wanted to take this opportunity to remind you that your membership with the Northern California/Nevada Chapter of the Society of Fire Protection Engineers (NCN-SFPE) has come up for renewal.
NCN-SFPE is more than simply a group of professionals providing services in the Fire and Life Safety field. The local chapter gives you the invaluable opportunity to network with other members and peers through monthly sponsored events, Fire Protection Engineering (FPE) seminar and the Annual Golf Tournament.
2013/14 has been an exciting year for NCN-SFPE. The Chapter’s Annual Seminar, held in January, was a success, with approximately 100 community members in attendance, among them: AHJ, Contractors, Engineers, Consultants and Vendors. In addition, the chapter held eight monthly meetings, and among them, one that was co-hosted with the California Fire Chiefs Association, Fire Prevention Officers Chapter, Northern Division (NOR-CAL FPO). As a result of the chapter’s efforts and member participation, four scholarship, each for the amount of $1,500, for a total of $6,000, were awarded to students in the Cal-Poly FPE Master program. Special thanks to our past president, Scott Laramee and 2nd Vice President, Brian Salyers for their great contribution during the past year.
We are looking forward to the next year and hope to continue and grow our chapter and support and provide an ideal meeting place for the Fire Protection community.
The chapter has some great presenters lined up for the 2014/15 monthly meetings. The Annual Seminar is planned for the beginning of 2015. In an effort to enhance member participation, the Chapter has decided to allocate time at the end of each monthly meeting for members/attendees to contribute in an open discussion and provide information on “what is happening in FPE world”. You are all encourage to submit your topics/developments through our website.
