I hope my message finds you and all your loved ones safe and sound during this unprecedented global crisis. We all are enduring our quarantined situations as our Federal, State and Local governments work diligently with the medical and scientific community to develop a cure for the COVID-19 virus. They are also looking out for our better good and implementing restrictions on each and every one of us while dealing with this Pandemic. I hope we all can do our part to minimize the spread of this virus by listening and following the mandates enacted.

As you may be aware, our line of business largely falls under the essential business in the Commercial and Residential Construction Industry. This allows us to keep working on current and upcoming projects (see the Legal Article pertaining to right to travel for construction work). Please be safe everyone and make smart decisions as we are out on our projects.

The Scholarship Application is available for college students. If you know of anyone in the Engineering field of studies please spread the word. They can contact Dominic Huey who is the chair of the Education and Scholarship Committee at dhuey@structural.net.

The 2nd Quarter Dinner Meeting will be held at The Hotel at College Park. Hopefully I and the ICRI Baltimore Washington Officers and Directors will see you there. We will continue to monitor the status of where we are at with the COVID-19 Pandemic accordingly. If we find it necessary to cancel, we will do so at a later date.

We are doing what we can to keep things moving forward at the ICRI Chapter level and are here to help you if you need it. Times like these show the strength, character and importance of an association like ICRI. I am so proud to represent this great organization as your Chapter President, and I wish to thank each and every one of you for your continued dedication, engagement, and support!

For now, I wish you and your family safety and health as we continue to weather these unprecedented circumstances.

Please feel free to contact me at rich@lymtal.com with any comments and suggestions for the remainder of the year
