CEA – 2012 Website Stats In Review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 4,800 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 8 years to get that many views.

November 2012 – Meeting Recap

Thanks to everyone who came out to last night’s meeting. As this was a business meeting it was great to see so many past presidents in the room.  In addition some enjoyable conversations and food, Ed took the floor to ask about the 2013 Chicago Cruise, which benefits the EESF. It was nice to hear back from many of you who shared your ideas on how to make it even more successful. That kind of feedback is important.

I am pleased to announce that your newly elected board for the 2011-2012 year is: Kevin Ryan – President, Cornelius Walls -Vice President and Tom Przybyla – Secretary Treasurer. I’m excited to help and see the direction that our new officers take the CEA.

My personal thanks for allowing me to serve as VP for two years and then President for another two.  One of my objectives was to help CEA members gain educational credits by attending presentations at each meeting as well as coordinating the yearly QEI/CEU educational program that was very successful.  I hope that I was able to make a difference in making the CEA a valuable asset to you and look forward to continuing this support. The association is in good hands and also great financial shape thanks to the hard work of Tom Przybyla.

See you all at next months Chicago Elevator Association Holiday party. Wednesday December 5th.

September 6th, 2012 Recap Meeting

Thanks to everyone who attended the CEA meeting on Thursday at Marcello’s. There was some great input and participation from Anderson Elevator, Elite Elevator, Everest Elevator as well as from Formula Systems, Parts Specialists, C.J. Anderson and Adams Elevator. We also had a visitor who attended from Formula Systems who was in attendance all the way from the UK.

We received updates on the City of Chicago and the State of Illinois and also received a financial update on the 2012 Golf Outing. Some of the truly excellent discussion happened towards the end of the meeting where some exciting ideas were mentioned about growing the association. Some of the topics included a 2013 QEI Code Update Seminar as we’ve done in the past, a 2014 Consultants/Architects Chicago Forum and one that truly would show the true giving side of the CEA and its members a Toy Drive.  If you’ve got an idea of how the CEA can help you, let us know.

The idea of hosting the meetings at other locations was also brought up and if anyone knows of a good restaurant/meeting location you’d like to recommend please let us know. As many of us make the trip to Atlantic City this week, know that the CEA and the Chicago Elevator market are well represented.

Again, thank you to those who attended last weeks meeting. Great to see you all, looking forward to seeing you at October’s meeting which will be held at Angelo’s in Elmhurst.
