Chairman’s Message

Happy New Year! I hope all members had a safe and happy holiday season. I want to thank the chapter for the opportunity to be the 2019 Chair for Chapter 80. Over the next year, I hope to build membership through a quality program and targeted recruiting efforts.

I want to thank Brain Cobb for all he has done for Chapter 80. Brian has been in the Chapter for many
years. In my sort time, he has been in leadership position almost every year. Brain has been key in
carrying the torch through the years. He has provided mentorship to the student chapter and
helped to build a strong base. Brain will be missed and we wish him luck in his new endeavors.

Over the past few weeks, the officer committee has been working on plans for the upcoming year. We
are excited to offer our typical tours, but also in the works are social events, community outreach, and a technical talks. We also have a few distance trips in formulation. If anyone has a specific company they would like to tour or other ideas, please reach out soon so we can try to include that in the upcoming year!
We have recently started a Facebook page for Chapter 80 (link). Please like and subscribe to the
page for event details, chapter information, articles and videos on manufacturing topics.

I wish all a successful year,

Mike Butler
Chapter 80 Chair
