ANNA 2017 Golf Charity
During the annual 2017 golf tournament there was a fund raiser for the recent victims of the devastating flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey. The ANNA Exhibitors Group teamed up with ClimeCo to provide $2500 of donations to Bay Area Meals on Wheels who does an amazing job with all of its volunteers delivering warm meals to the home-bound in the Bay Area of Houston Texas. This area was heavily hit by Hurricane Harvey. Delivering meals and a warm conversation means so much to so many. GREAT WORK! Special thanks to Burke Allen and Bill Flederbach for making this happen.
Peter Hein Retires from ANNA
Peter Hein has decided to retire from the ANNA Executive after many years of dedicated service. Peter knowledge and contributions will be missed during all the discussions. Each year Peter was instrumental in collecting the presentations for the conference and running the audio visual. Peter will still be active in the industry and can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you like to become involved with the ANNA Executive please let David Hind know.
Over the years the ANNA executive has received requests to provide translation services. After much consideration, a policy has been developed.
"The primary goal of ANNA is networking and sharing of technical information to ensure safe, efficient operation of ammonium nitrate and nitric acid facilities. In order to maximize participation at the conference, the communication language is English. No translation services are provided and it is recommended that delegates can communicate in English.
The option of a group of delegates providing their own translation services during presentation was considered and rejected since this would not meet the primary goal of ANNA and significantly reduce participation of these delegates."
