Dear PEI Member:
The PEI Board of Directors met late last month in Vancouver, British Columbia, and made a number of important decisions related to membership services and association operations. Here is a summary of the actions taken by the group.
New Programs to Aid Service Companies. PEI distributor and service companies face unique challenges with respect to finding, selecting, training and retaining quality service technicians. The PEI board approved three programs designed to help members meet those problems. Over the next 12 to 18 months, PEI will:
No New Recommended Practices This Year. The board agreed with the Recommended Practices Topic Advisory Committee that none of the three topics proposed by PEI members as a subject of a new recommended practice be developed as a standalone document. Work on PEIís newest recommended practice on LNG fueling facilities will begin this month.
Distributor Profitability Survey and Employee Compensation Survey. Both surveys of PEI distributor members were approved (Distributor Profitability this month and Employee Compensation in January 2016). Recognizing that both surveys have been suffering from low participation, the board acknowledged that future results may yield insignificant data and recommended that future surveys be discontinued if a substantial increase in participation is not achieved.

Other Board Action. Reports from PEIís Education and Convention, Strategic Long Range Planning, Safety, Investment and Young Executives Committees were reviewed. Here is a summary of the action taken by the board of general interest to PEI members.
Kevin McKinney, Mobile, AL, presided at the midyear
meeting. Other officers, directors and staff attending the meeting included:
UST RULE REVIEW COMPLETED BY OMB
EPA released the proposed UST regulation in 2011 and sent the final rule to OMB for review in late September 2014. The final rule is expected to be printed in the Federal Register by June. EPA may sponsor some type of online presentation after release of the rule but before publication in the Federal Register. If EPA plans a briefing, we will notify you when and how that will occur.
INAUGURAL PEI WOMEN CONFERENCE
The PEI Women Committee met after the conference in Denver and planned a PEI Women session (October 11) at the 2015 PEI Convention in Las Vegas, tentatively selected New Orleans as the location for the 2016 PEI Women Conference and agreed on the topics to be covered at the meeting, and provided input on PEIís soon-to-be-released mentoring program. The committee also fined-tuned a new program designed for all PEI members that would organize and make available industry-related instructional videos through PEIís YouTube channel. More on that program this summer.
