On Tuesday April 4, 2017, the AFSA Virginia Chapter held a Board meeting and Regular meeting at the Four Points Hotel by Sheraton in Richmond Virginia.
After these meetings, a Four-Hour presentation was given by Roland Huggins of National AFSA on NFPA #25 2014 Edition.
The Chapter had 54 attendees for the Regular meeting. Normal Chapter news and Virginia Chapter Committees all reported on Chapter issues. The new Virginia State Fire Marshall, Brian McGraw was introduced by Jack Medovich, the Chapter President. Josh Shapiro of Reliable Automatic Sprinkler gave a 15-minute product update on Reliable products. Many of our Vendor members then left and a number of new arrivals came for the Seminar portion only.
We had a total of 71 attendees of the Seminar. Roland Huggins of National AFSA made a very detailed presentation of the 2014 Edition changes to NFPA #25. This Edition will be effective Statewide in Virginia in 2018 George Wagner, Executive Director of the Virginia Chapter, registered and Proctored this Seminar. The AFSA Virginia Chapter would like to thank National AFSA for providing this Seminar Program and special thanks goes to Maricarmen Martinez for her help in setting up this Program getting us all the required supplies.
