Panhandle West Texas Chapter
A message from your Chapter President Dana Hartman

Greetings from the Panhandle West Texas Chapter!

I’m not sure about you, but this year seems to be flying by.  I hope this finds you healthy, happy, ready for Spring activities!


Our Chapter met in February at the Taylor County Health Department.  Thanks to Terri, Mamata, and Wayne Rose, as well as other members of the Health Department for an educational and well-rounded meeting.  Topics covered were Texas Dairy Matters, OSSF Systems in Taylor Co., Abilene’s New Fat, Oils and Grease Ordinance, DSHS Meat Group, Adventure Cover Water Park, and as well as other topics. We had our question box available for the first time.  It was a success!  It is always great to hear varying opinions on how we handle situations in the field.  As an observer, I really enjoyed listening how many different approaches we take while inspecting.   We had excellent attendance.  Kudos to the Amarillo crew for leaving around 4 AM to get there! 


Our next meeting is in progress.  It will be in June in Lubbock.  There will be training for RS, Codes, and OSSF.  Please makes plans to attend.  I will get more information to you later. 


Our AEC Conference is really beginning to come together.  I think you will be VERY happy with all the work that is being put into this conference by your Governing Council.  There is a variety of topics that will be covered in a short amount of time.  Remember the conference and plan to make every effort to attend this year.  The Conference will be held from October 22-26th 2018 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Austin.   BE THERE!!!!


We now have a Facebook page for our Chapter.  If there is something that you would like to post, or have posted, please let me know and we will get it on there.  As always, I challenge you to help us spread the word about TEHA!   


See you soon!


Dana Hartman, President
