February 18 Chapter Educational Meeting

posted Jan 19, 2017, 2:20 PM by Kenneth Fast

This is the meeting announcement for the Feb. 18th educational and business meeting of the East Tennessee Chapter of ASHI.  We are scheduled to have eight (8) hours of continuing education presented and/or organized by Darson Buckner with DuPont/Tyvek.  ASHI & State approval is pending at this time, but no difficulties are expected.

Unless otherwise notified, the meeting will be at “Master Service Companies” in Knoxville. (Previously, Master-Dry. Same location as our recent previous meetings)

The cost for the meeting will be $25.00 for Chapter members and $80.00 for non-chapter members.

 For non-chapter members, if you choose to join the East TN chapter of ASHI at the February meeting, you will receive a $45.00 discount off of your first year dues.  Current Chapter dues are $145.00, so your first year dues would be reduced to $100.00

Please forward this email to anyone not on the list that you think might be interested in eight hours of quality education or the East TN Chapter of ASHI.

All the Best,
