A letter from our President – October 30, 2013

by admin / 01 November 2013 / No Comments

Dear members:

It is hard to believe that we just held our second program of the year. Like the first one, “Back to School, the Scoop on Unfunded Projects,” this one, “Air, Land and Sea: All Roads Lead to South Florida,” was also a complete success. Between the 2 programs we had over 100 people benefiting from the important information our distinguish panelists provided. I want to thank our moderators, Samuel Ferrari and Kricket Snow, and panelists for the two programs:

  • Jose Rodriguez, P.A., Director, Facilities Operations for the Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine
  • Neyda Otero, Assistant Vice-Provost, Design and Construction – Miami Dade College
  • Robert Cambó, Managing Partner – Alliance Companies
  • Carlos E. Jose – Assistant Aviation Director for Facilities Management, MIA
  • Marc Gambrill, P.E., MPA, C.M. – Director of Capital Improvement Division at Broward County Aviation Department
  • Isa M. Núñez, P.E. – Chief Engineering Services & Port Tunnel Project, Port Miami

On another note, SMPS National just a launched a new page for the MySMPS community, www.my.smps.org I encourage you to login and take advantage of the hundreds of resources you can find there. SMPS National has uploaded a video that gives you a tour of the site and has tips on how to find information: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1z-odJt2JA

I want to take this opportunity to welcome a new member, Staci F. Thirlwell, Director of Business Development at Current Builders, and to remind you that if you refer a member, you can earn three additional months of membership. You can find more information here: http://www.smps.org/Membership/Membership/

Finally, we are always looking for volunteers for the chapter. We have different committees where your help and industry knowledge are always welcome. If you are interested of being part of a committee, please contact me at pcaripa@rtkl.com or our membership chair, Susan Hernandez at shernandez@haks.net.

We look forward to seeing you at our next event on November 13, “Driving Growth – Your Own, Your Firm’s, Your Future,” at the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Airport Hotel. We also hope you can attend our webinar on November 15, “Inside Marketer to Outside Business Developer: The Challenges and Rewards of the Transition.” For more information on these and future events, please visit our website: www.smpssouthflorida.com
