September meeting information on suicide prevention is under the resource page.
We had a great turn out and beautiful weather for our first in person social since 2019! Everyone was glad to visit together and meet others. The food was great and we were even graced by Bobby the clown, who made balloon animals for the kids that attended. I’m sure everyone would agree that the patio was one incredible view! A huge shout out to long time GTC member Dan Hurley for facilitating the logistics and putting this together for our chapter! What a treat it was! Looking forward to transitioning to more in person opportunities.
We want to thank Scott Kalis with the City of Virginia Beach for speaking yesterday and providing some great information.

“Kyle worked with Safety-Reports.com to build a standardized observation checklist and built training curriculum to roll out the program. Due to his rapport and support he gained from our largest operating function in the region, field operations, he was able to roll out the observation process for all leaders. They bought in and leaders showed ownership by mandating, from the VP level down, they would conduct monthly observations. The first year of the observations went well and six different projects, due to the observations, ranging from standardization of foreign voltage detectors to purchasing hands-free devices for all our techs, emerged.”
