Welcome

Hello Friends!

I hope winter is being kind to everyone, and I really hope that Spring will come early this year to our area.  I’m much more into seeing the daffodils and tulips than scraping ice off the windshield of my car!

Our February 11 dinner meeting is sure to be a good one.  Our speaker is Jason Brustad, and his topic will be “Collaboration, Communication and Quality: When the U.S. Navy Goes Diving for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.”  With a focus on communications and better understanding the styles and standards of others in order to work together effectively and efficiently, Jason will share some of the challenges encountered during his U.S. Navy diving career and how they were addressed, including the retrieval of a Vertical Barrier Screen from the intake side of a power turbine, located in 130 feet of water, on the upstream side of the John Day Dam.  The success of this diving operation was vital to both the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the Bonneville Power Administration.

Check out the details here – hope you can join us on February 11!

p.s.  As we plan meetings and site visits for the remainder of 2020, we are always interested in hearing from our members.  What topics are you most interested in?  Do you know of some good, local speakers that we might invite to present at one of our meetings?  Ideas for site visits/tours?  We welcome your input!  We also welcome volunteers – please contact me if you would like to become more actively involved in our section activities.

Keep checking back here – and on our other website – for news of future Columbia Basin ASQ events and activities!
