SBE Chapter 90 Southwest Florida Formed
October 27, 2015
Following several organizational meetings and electing officers, SBE members in the area around Ft. Myers, FL, have organized Chapter 90. The SBE Board of Directors authorized the chapter at its October meeting in Madison, WI. Hal Kneller, CPBE, AMD, DRB, CBNE, is the chairman. Brad Taylor is the vice chairman, Bob Geckler is the secretary, and Joe Fiorini is the treasurer.
As per the SBE by-laws, a chapter can be authorized after holding at least three meetings, having at least 10 SBE members, electing officers and adopt by-laws. Some members of Chapter 90 were previously attached to Chapter 39 Tampa Bay, but wanted a chapter closer to home.
The three chapter meetings, held in June, August and September, featured presentations and discussions on forming a chapter, an update on ATSC 3.0, a facility tour, and IP audio systems.
