Last night, (Oct 1st), several topics where covered concerning the immediate future of 399. The discussion/motions made could only be heard and debated by being present at the meeting.

These topics are in no particular order,

2) South Carolina Sheet Metal work across the state is growing and journeymen are in need.

3) Member requested shirts/hats/stickers.

4) Update on apprentices advancement.

5) Modification to the New Ellenton training facility as to rectify a shipping/receiving problem do to a neighbors decision to move a fence. Also, some type of knee/waist high wall or barrier is need to redirect flood water out of the meeting room and offices.

6) Larry Stewart has requested several need items for the halls continued well being and function. One of the items in question, a smart thermostat for more energy efficient use of the A/C.

We ALL benefit from your participation when attending any meeting, we can NOT grow and progress into the future without your input and time donated to the hall. The next opportunity for you to help is November 4th, 8:00pm at the Colombia Training Center. Will you help or continue to ignore your brothers and sisters?
