PNG_XSTo our Members and your families, on behalf of the Board of the MA IAAI, I wish to extend a healthy and happy Holiday Season to you all. It is hard to believe that a half year has gone by since our annual Seminar down the Cape.

As we continue with the Seminar training on NFPA 1033, I want to thank all the Board Members for their tireless effort to put on a Seminar. The background work that goes into it both preparing for and then organizing and actually putting on a Seminar is quite a bit of work. Our Chapter Members do not see the amount of work that you all do. I want to personally thank you all for your assistance.

Past President and Seminar Coordinator Mike Mazza has also been of tremendous assistance. When I first spoke of the idea of having most of our Seminar topics to be on NFPA 1033, the entire Board welcomed the idea and Mike knew right away as to the Professional Experts who would be willing to speak on these topics. To all of our Speakers, I want to thank you as well for taking the time out of your own work schedules to come and to speak on the important aspects of NFPA 1033.

To our Past Presidents and Past Board members, I also wish to take the time to acknowledge you and to thank you for all your hard work and assistance. It has and will continue to be truly appreciated.

As we begin the second half of our 2015-2016 Season, I would like to remind you all of the upcoming dates and locations of our Seminars:

Thursday, January 21st, 2016 Florian Hall, Boston MA

Thursday, March 24th, 3016 Chicopee, MA

Wednesday, June 8th, 2016 – Friday, June 10th, 2016 South Yarmouth MA

As we close the Year 2015, our thoughts and prayers go out to the loved ones we have lost.

Please say a special prayer for all of the Fallen Police Officers and Firefighters who have lost their lives in the line of duty.

May all of you have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

As always, Be Safe
