|Dear PEI Member:
The PEI Board of Directors met April 20 in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and made a number of policy decisions related to membership services and association operations. Here is a summary.
Two New Recommended Practices. The directors approved two new recommended practices for immediate development:
We are currently forming a steering committee whose sole purpose is to develop a scope statement for the CNG document. If you are interested in being a part of this "scope" committee contact Bob Young at PEI email@example.com. The process should take no more than three weeks and all work will be handled by conference call. Formation of the two committees that will be responsible for writing the new recommended practices will begin this summer.
10-Groups for Service Managers. The directors voted to extend PEI's highly successful 10-Group program to service managers. These groups will be separate and distinct from the 10-Groups currently available to principals of Distributor, Service and Construction, and Affiliate Division member companies. Look for these groups to form this summer.
Committee Recommendations Approved. Reports from PEI's Education and Convention, Strategic Long Range Planning, Safety, Investment and Young Executives Committees were reviewed. Some board action of general interest to PEI members include:

FINAL FEDERAL HURDLE TO SALE OF E15 TO BE CLEARED SOON
The RFGSA, funded by 99 ethanol producers, will collect and test more than 7,500 gasoline samples to check for oxygenate content and Reid Vapor Pressure (RVP), among other things. If E15 is detected, the RFGSA will verify that the retailer has properly displayed E15 labels as required by EPA. The launch of the E15 Fuel Survey is expected very soon.
Press reports about the survey have increased the industry's interest in PEI's UST Component Compatibility Library. The Library contains statements from 22 manufacturers of underground storage tank components regarding equipment compatibility with gasoline containing more than 10 percent ethanol or diesel containing more than 20 percent biodiesel. The compliance letters are used by tank owners to demonstrate compliance with the compatibility requirement of 40 CFR 280.32.
Manufacturers who would like to be included should email their compatibility statements to email@example.com. Manufacturers submitting letters to date include: Acterra, Ameron International, Bravo Systems, Brugg Pipesystems, Containment Solutions, Hamilton Tanks, Highland Tank, KPS, Metal Products Company, Mid-South Steel, Modern Welding, Morrison Bros., National Environmental Fiberglass, NOV Fiber Glass Systems, Nupi Americas, Omegaflex, Owens Corning, Service Welding, Stanwade, Vaporless Manufacturing, Western Fiberglass and Xerxes.
