CEA Annual Golf Outing August 1, 2014 – Recap

The Chicago Elevator Association (CEA) held their annual golf outing at the Gleneagles Country Club to benefit the Elevator Escalator Safety Foundation (EESF). The event had a great day for the outing with plenty of sunshine for the golfers. All of the attendees were winners at this year’s charity event. A delicious dinner was provided to the attendees following the outing. The world class raffle with the industries finest prizes kept all the attendees in smiles.

The event had a 50/50 drawing for the EESF. The CEA would like to Thank Brad Hunt of the Peelle Company, Ken Grohowski of CE Electronics, and the girls from RelaDyne for helping with the collection of $1,840.00 dollars for the drawing. Half went to the winner and the other half to the EESF.

This years EESF charity event was a huge success. The CEA Annual Golf Outing helped the EESF by raising $2000.00 dollars to further their mission.

The CEA would also like to thank our golf outing Committee. Glenn Duncan, Tom Przybyla, from Parts Specialists, Inc., and Matt Dennett from RBN & Associates.

What a great time we had despite colder temperatures and a fog bank that lifted just in time to enjoy the dinner cruise on Lake Michigan this past Wednesday. With close to 150 elevator industry members on board this event was a huge success. The Spirit of Chicago provide a nice upgrade from boat we’ve been holding this event on in the past and the food was excellent. On behalf of the Elevator Escalator Safety Foundation; Ed, Corn and myself can’t say it enough, thank you for helping make this event a success once again. - Tom S

CEA May Meeting Recap

Thanks to everyone who came out for the meeting at Champps in Lombard on May 1st. Attendance was a packed house for this event, which made it a very enjoyable evening for all the members

There was a presentation given by Dotty Stanlaske, Executive Director of National Association of Elevator Safety Authorities International from Turnwater Washington.


The topic was on the NAESA Qualified Elevator Inspector programs and certification. Dotty’s insight on the new Certification process, and the programs knowledge, were appreciated by all the members in attendance. Everyone left this meeting with a clearer understanding of how NAESA’s certification program is progressing.

The Code committee reported on the status of the State of Illinois, and the City of Chicago and it was very nice to hear the positive outlook from the past couple months..

September’s meeting CE Electronic – Acoustics Division will be presenting on their new elevator equipment. You don’t want to miss this presentation.

Mark your calendars for the next meeting on September 4th at the Tuscano’s in Schiller Park.
