Drawing for Trailer – By Danny Maetin

   Our Chapter had sent out a notice to our members related to the sale of our old backflow trailer. We requested that anyone interested, were to send in their information for a drawing to be held at the July 13th meeting. Two members, Tim Bakman(Bakman Water Company) and Glenn Randall(Dirty Ernies Landscaping) were the only people interested in the trailer. The price for the trailer drawing winner would be $1,000.00. A guest drew the winning name out of a container. The winner was Tim Bakman. Congratulations to Bakman Water Company for being the recipient of the backflow trailer. Thank you also to Glenn Randall for making it a two way fight for the trailer.

Sunshine- by Terry Schneider
   Terry reported that long time member Joe McGuire of Merced County Water Conditioning passed away in February of this year. Also, Tom Ayers recently had a triple bypass operation. Terry talked
   to his daughter on Monday and she stated that he was doing pretty well. She said he might go home Friday or on the weekend.

Old Business -
   Drawing For Trailer- See previous account as it was done prior to any other business being conducted.

   Refresher Course- A three evening refresher workshop will be held on August 2, 3 and 4, 2016 at the Fresno City Water Corporation Yard. The ABPA exam will be at that location on Friday, Aug. 5th at 8:00 am. AWWA exam will be on Saturday, August 6th at the same location at 8:00 am.

New Business –
   Western Regional Conference- The conference is scheduled to be held at The Orleans Hotel and Conference Center on September 26th and 27th. A flyer with all the information should be coming out soon. It appears that three of our members are planning on attending; Danny Martin, Terry Schneider and Charlie Magana.

   Silent Auction- Terry Schneider is going to again coordinate the Silent Auction at the Western Regional Conference. Our Chapter will again donate a Vendors Raffle Item and a Silent Auction Item. David Weisser made a motion to increase the amount spent on the Vendor Raffle Item to $150.00, up from $100.00. Tim Bakman seconded the motion and it was approved.

   Tom Ayers Get Well- Terry brought a card to the meeting for everyone present to sign. Tim Bakman volunteered to donate a potted plant or floral arrangement to Tom and to send the card with the flowers to Tom at his home in Corcoran. Our Chapter thanks you Tim.

                 AWWA- There was some discussion related to some very specific test site requirements that
are being imposed at all examination sites. We feel that we will have no problems complying because we have been following the proposal for years. Mike McKeever, our instructor and Joel Fedor the assistant instructor will follow up on their request.

Proctor Training- The same problem has again occurred related to Proctor Certification. Several people completed a Proctor training Course held in Madera a couple of months ago and have not heard from ABPA as to whether they passed or failed. Proctors are in high demand and we need to get new ones in the mix as soon as possible. The instructor, Jim Purzycki stated he sent the test package to Mike Ahlee, the Certification Administrator. Mike has not responded yet. Terry will email Mike to see where the certificates are.

September Meeting – The next Chapter meeting will be at Brooks Ranch on Wednesday, September 14, 2016. That is on S. Chestnut and Highway “99”. 6:30 pm.

There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 7:35 pm.

         Respectfully submitted,
