President's Message - December 2013

The coldness is upon us….hopefully we are all prepared for what’s in store for us.  We were lucky enough to have two speakers at our November meeting along with a terrific turn out. Mr. George Geannakakos, Regional Sales Engineer for LG and Beth Fagin from Alan Pearl and Associates were our speakers.  Mr. Geannakakos gave a presentation about VRF systems and controls.  Beth Fagin gave us some informative information about the Affordable Care Act such as some of us offer our employees’ health insurance that could be considered “Cadillac” coverage (I thought it was  Volkswagen coverage myself) and  the government is currently  working on what the penalties should be for that coverage.  The federal insurance marketplace computer program still has a lot of problems that they are trying to solve.  Beth believes there will be some changes to the system but it is going to take a while for that to happen.

December 12 will be our Holiday Gala at The Chalet in Roslyn.  Don’t forget to bring your toy for our “Toys For Tots” collection.  Hope to see all of you there.
