Message from the President

On behalf of the Board of Directors, Board of Governors, Chapter Officers and the membership, I would like to welcome you to the Southwestern Ohio Chapter of the American Society of Plumbing Engineers.

The Southwestern Ohio Chapter, serving primarily the Cincinnati and Dayton areas as well as the Louisville and Lexington (KY) areas, is composed of individuals including engineers/designers, manufacturer’s representatives, contractors and code officials/plans examiners/inspectors, all with a common interest…the continued professional growth and development of the discipline of plumbing engineering.

This is primarily accomplished through technical presentations at our monthly Chapter meetings. It is on these occasions that the membership gathers for both fellowship and to broaden their knowledge and skills by learning the latest code information, design solutions, and available technology. These are an excellent means for individuals of all levels of skill and experience to enhance their knowledge. And for those persons with continuing education requirements, the technical presentations offered at Chapter meetings are a quick way to pick up CEUs for their registration(s) and/or certification(s).

Eleven editions of our newsletter are published during each Chapter year. Contained within its pages are features about the latest news concerning the Society, the Chapter and its membership as well as additional technical information of interest to the plumbing engineering community.

The Chapter also promotes the ASPE Convention and Plumbing Exposition, held on even-numbered years, and the ASPE Technical Symposium on odd-numbered years. Both events offer great educational opportunities along with a larger network pool to develop professional and personal contacts.

We invite you to join us at one of our monthly meetings and learn first-hand some of the benefits of membership in ASPE and the Chapter. In the meantime, please feel free to browse through the Chapter website. Go ahead…take the opportunity to “walk around” and learn about not only the Southwestern Ohio Chapter, but the Society as well.

It is our hope that what you learn will inspire you to become a member of ASPE; just follow the links to the Membership Application. Or, should you have any questions, please feel free to contact myself, any member of the Board of Directors, Board of Govenors or Chapter officer. We stand ready to answer any questions you may have about the foremost organization dedicated to plumbing engineering… ASPE.
