President's Summer Break Message

Our last meeting for this term year was a luncheon meeting held on May 16th, and was titled “The Status and Outlook of the Chemical Industry in Louisiana” and was presented by Mr. Gregory Bowser the President of the Louisiana Chemical Association (LCA). Mr. Bowser discussed recent trends in the chemical industry including plans for plant upgrades and expansions in the near future. This meeting was a joint meeting with the New Orleans Section of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AiChE).

Overall this term year we held nine monthly meeting with topics ranging from drainage and flood control, to NASA projects, to FEMA disaster planning and recovery, to industry and business outlooks, along with two ethics presentations and licensing and awards ceremonies. Our Chapter Sponsorship Program did really well and raised over $9000.00. Likewise our 10th Annual Golf Tournament in November 2017 was a success.

With the money raised from the Chapter Sponsorship Program and the 10th Annual NO-LES Golf Tournament we funded the middle school MATCOUNTS program, FRC FIRST Bayou Robotics Competition in March, and both UNO and Tulane Engineering Forums respectively. In addition we funded four $1000.00 chapter level scholarships which were awarded at our May meeting.

I have been asked to serve one more year as your chapter president due to job commitments of my potential successors. In my role as your president for the 2018-2019 term; my first official duty was to attend the first LES State Board meeting held in conjunction with the Gulf States Engineering Conference (GSEC) in Destin, Florida on June 9th to June 12th. I was installed as the NOLES Chapter President officially, for my second term, at a breakout LES Installation Banquet Sunday June 10th along with the other chapter presidents, state officers and our new LES State President Josh Hays, PE.

I would like to take this time to thank our members and sponsors for a great year and I hope you and your families will have a safe and enjoyable summer vacation.c

Nicholas M. Musmeci, P.E.

NOLES, Chapter President
