Preston Trail Luncheon Recap

What a great meeting! Our State Director, Jeff Frison, provided an update on what NSPE & TSPE are doing in response to the EPA’s proposed rule regarding chemical facility safety and security measures. Just one example of how NSPE/TSPE are working hard behind the scenes in favor of public health, safety, and welfare.


TSPE Preston Trail September Luncheon – Cheers!

Our guest speaker, Jenna Covington (Asst. Deputy Director Wastewater, NTMWD), provided an overview of North Texas Municipal Water Districts partnership and collaboration with municipalities to ensure that our water/sewer infrastructure is safe and well-planned for continued future growth in the region. This as we celebrated “Imagine a Day Without Water”

We are truly fortunate to live in a part of the world where clean and safe water is readily available – this is not the case for 1.8 billion people around the world. How can we help? Water For People is a non-profit that works in 9 countries to battle this devastating issue. I encourage everyone to support this cause through donation and spreading awareness.

Next month we are excited to have Chad Jackson with KDC to discuss their developments of CityLine in Richardson and Legacy West in Plano! Mark your calendars for Thursday, October 20 and be on the lookout for registration emails.

Have a great weekend everyone!

  • Continuing to focus our involvement on STEM initiatives through volunteer events and grants.
  • Providing increased opportunities for members to get involved in the Chapter.
  • Further promoting the benefits and necessity of becoming a member of NSPE/TSPE.
