Good Morning,

The Conference is behind us and we are moving forward to 2020. This years conference was well attended and overall a success. Thanks to those that attended. Also a big thank you to our training committee for all of their hard work. I hope you found the training worthwhile. IFAMA will be looking for training ideas for the 2020 conference if you have any.

We have the January training set for next year. It will be hosted in Oswego with Liquid Spring presenting. We will have a rig on lifts to help everyone get a better understanding on Liquid Spring operation and components. As always, we will have EVT testing at 1:00 PM following our training. Remember to register for testing directly through EVT. April looks like it will be hosted in West Dundee thanks to Jeff Bober.

Remember our training is included with your membership so it is at no cost if you registered for the conference or have sent in your dues for 2020. We are going back to charging $25 for the quarterly training if you are not a paid member. So, if you haven't, get those dues in sooner than later.

Along those lines, I will be sending another email to the members that are current for 2020. If you registered for the conference or have sent your dues in and don't get a membership email from me, please let me know and we will get it corrected.

Thank you all for your commitment to IFAMA and what it stands for.
Have a happy and prosperous Holiday Season. See you all in 2020.
