IAMU has a great group of people who volunteer on various IAMU committees. All of our committees play a vital role in planning and assisting during workshops.
The Electric Safety & Training Committee has three members who will be retiring this year. During their February meeting, certificates honoring them were presented. The certificates read: “This certificate of appreciation is hereby awarded in recognition of your generous participation and contribution to the IAMU Electric Safety & Training Committee, which will have an enduring and positive effect on the safety and health of municipal electric utility employees”.
Rory Weis, Electric Manager at Denison Municipal Utilities and Electric Committee Chair, thanked the following committee members for their service:
Thanks to Rich Archer, Electric Distribution Assistant Superintendent for Ames Municipal Electric System, retiring this year.
Thanks to Steve Kajewski, Staff Assistant at Algona Municipal Utilities, retiring this year.
Thanks to Steve Jenkinson, Line Crew Supervisor at Muscatine Power & Water, retiring this year.

Those members are:

Thanks to these members and thank you to the utilities that are allowing them to serve.
