So, Harvey interrupted our normal meeting (like most everything in Houston). But, we still feel the need to get everyone together, hand out some money for a scholarship, hand out some more money for hurricane relief and maybe have a cocktail or two.
So, we will have an informal meeting (in other words, you'll pay for your own darn drinks....) next week. Here are the details: Thursday, September 28th, 5-8 p.m.
Fox and Hound Sports Tavern
11470 Westheimer Road Houston , TX 77077
Also, if you or your folks were affected, please see below:
NSPS has a Disaster Relief fund in place to help in times like these. You can find out more information about that program by following the link below. We are aware of multiple relief checks that have already been issued to surveyors in the Houston area. NSPS also accepts donations specifically to the Relief fund, that information can also be found in the link below.
Additionally, multiple TSPS Chapters have offered to financially assist any members that have experienced damage to their homes, vehicles, or unpaid time away from work. The Chapter 9 Board has also voted to allocate $1000 of our budget this year to help as well. Here is what we need from you if you would like to receive financial assistance: Send us a brief paragraph about your situation and the amount of damage you have received. If you can include photos, that would be great. Please include your name and full contact information in the email. Emails need to be sent to TSPSChapter9@gmail.com
by Wednesday, September 13th (but we will still accept them...)
It has been incredible to see the amount of support for all of those affected by Hurricane Harvey. As an organization, we hope that we can support and encourage each other through this difficult time for our community.
Hope to see you all next week.
