At the Houston Business Roundtable meeting on January 12th, we were excited to see all the new attendees... We had record attendance for January with around 43 people.
Topics discussed included: Lifting Lugs, OSHA update on C-DAT proposal, and an ASME B30 Committee chair person roster was passed out. Charlie Emmitte, of Valero Refining, brought up a good discussion on wind considerations and LSI wind monitoring equipment. Wayne Oswald showed a “Powerful” power point presentation on texting while driving. I presented a framed photo to Kerry Hulse of Deep South Crane and Rigging as a token of his traveling preparation reputation.
Walter Brumley called for topics and speakers for upcoming meetings and breakfast forums. HBR is planning an April breakfast forum with a likely panel discussion format. Likely topics will be 3rd party inspection practices.
At the end of the meeting we had a surprise bachelor’s party for Walter Brumley who’s getting married on Saturday... Congratulations Walter!
