The slate of Officers and Directors for 2020 was read at the September Meeting. The slate was read again at the regular October meeting where nominations were called for from the floor. Seeing none, the nominations were closed. At the November meeting, the Secretary cast one ballot for the slate as presented, and the Officers and Directors will be sworn in at the December meeting/installation dinner. Come show your support.
The 2020 slate is as follows: Mike Tabback – President
Ernie Sisco – Vice President
Anthony Merlino – Secretary
Jim Zaconie – Director
Bob Cellini – Director
Directors terms are for three years.
The October 2nd meeting was a beefsteak affair at Fire Company 2 in Wayne NJ. There was a short presentation regarding Superior Walls and problems with the product when not properly installed, and when standard footing and foundation systems are originally proposed for new construction, but substituted without prior notice to building departments. Another issue is the footings and walls are being installed without footing inspections. Preempt problems by discussing this with contractors before permits are issued. let them know plans are required before a change like this takes place, and let them know that footing inspections for Superior Walls are required just the same as conventional footings and foundations.
Our annual golf outing was held on September 25th at the Farmstead Country Club and deemed to be another huge success. Proceeds are used for our Scholarship fund which helps our children while attending college. Many thanks to Ernie Sisco and his committee for their hard work in making the outing the success it always turns out to be.
Our regular meeting on June 5, 2019 was held at Francesco’s Restaurant in Woodland Park. Dave Eisenhardt, a representative from Blue Linx spoke about their engineered products and the relation to our building codes.
The BPMIA-Felix Esposito Hospitality Room was open in Bally’s Casino in Atlantic City on May 1st and 2nd, 2019 during the NJ Building Safety Conference. I’d call it a success.
