Message from Education Chairperson, Hether Lugojanu

Hello MSA Supporters: Next week, on November 10th, Thursday we will be hosting a virtual education planning meeting. We are basically looking for all types of speakers for next year's monthly meetings. 

Please go to our website (www.gomsa.net) to download the form that allows you to submit a topic of presentation, certification, or seminar. Every year we plan the upcoming year's speakers around this time. This is an opportunity to offer Management or development presentations, new technology, updates on regulations, etc. For all Public Works Workers in all divisions that you see helpful. 

We have found you extremely helpful with topics in the past and would love to see your new ideas & participation for this upcoming year. We need your help to ensure our members gain knowledge and benefits from the many years of experience you have to offer. If you can’t make it, please have someone log on and submit your topic for you. You can also forward this information to anyone you think can offer us great training. We are open to all topics of education. 

Feel free to call me or respond to this email with any questions. We truly appreciate your support! We hope to see you next week! Please rsvp, so we have an idea of who to expect and email us your forms in advance if possible. Thanks again.

November General Meeting & Training

The November General Meeting and Training session has been moved to a new date. Our regular date, the second Tuesday of each month, has been preempted by the coming Mid-Term Elections on November 8th. Since public facilities are used for election polling places, we could not secure one for our meeting. Therefore, please mark your calendar on November 15th for the general meeting. 

Omar Rodriguez with Crafco Inc. will speak on “Crack Sealant Overview.” This class will provide a baseline of the different types of cracks that occur in pavement and the most comprehensive approaches to repair them to ensure the longevity of our roads.

Omar has been with Crafco for three months and covers Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, and Imperial Counties. Before Crafco, Omar worked at Precision Concrete Cutting for six years working with agencies all across Southern California to help them identify and remove dangerous trip hazards from their public sidewalks. Omar has been married to Cindy for almost 22  years and has two children, Omar Jr., aged 21, and Alyssa, aged 19. In his free time, Omar coaches youth soccer for AYSO and at Western Christian High School.

Dutch Oven will cater the meal. Pot Roast (w/ carrots, celery, onion), mashed potatoes, dinner rolls & green salad with Cookies. The cost is $25.00 per person.
