September 2019 Chapter Meeting

Ada Alfonso, Massachusetts Board of Electricians

Our first meeting of this calendar year is Wednesday September 18 at 6pm

We will be meeting at Anthony's 105 Canal St. Malden

 

We start this years calendar with Ada Alfonso the following is a message from her on what she plans on covering;

Thank you for the opportunity to speak to the membership.  

I think that so many of the changes that we have made this past year has been because we have been able to listen to the licensees and inspectors. Below is a list of items that I will be talking about but I also like to have this as an opening listening session. So if anyone has questions that they want to share with everyone or if they just need to pull me aside as some point during the night, I will be available. I encourage apprentices to attend this meeting as they always have questions about CORI, qualifying to take the exam, expired/expiring hours. 

 

·    The tremendous success that we had with renewal and the importance of the ePortal account going forward.  

·    New matters before the board: 

·    Legislative Advisory Counsel working on our MGL's

·    Mission to reinstate licenses that expired in 2016 or prior

·    Registering Apprentices

·    New Exams

·    Continuing Education and Hot Work Training

·    And anything else that you think is important and relevant.  

Thank you, Ada

 

The International Office has forwarded to us a draft copy of the new Chapter by-laws we will have a copy on hand to be reviewed by our membership, several changes are occurring, you are no longer required to be an inspector member to hold the executive offices as well as some other changes.

In today’s workplace, meetings rarely take place without at least one type of electronic device being involved. But when electrical outlets are limited and demand is high, people just want to find a way to plug in their devices and they don’t stop to think about safety. As a result, meeting rooms are often cluttered with daisy chains of extension cords and power strips, forming trip hazards and running the risk of overloading circuits. But with an update to the National Electrical Code (NEC), that all changes.

 

Until recently, the NEC only had rules regarding the placement of electrical outlets in residential homes, not meeting areas in commercial buildings. The 2017 update to NEC’s Section 210.71 requires meeting rooms 1,000 square feet or less have wall outlets (nonlocking type, 125-volt, 15 or 20 ampere) spaced in accordance with NEC 210.52(A)(1) through (4). Floor receptacles need to be no less than 6 feet from a fixed wall and there needs to be one receptacle for every 215 square feet of floor space in rooms that are at least 12 feet wide. If a meeting room is larger than 1,000 square feet but can be partitioned into smaller areas that are under 1,000 square feet, each partitioned area is required to meet these standards.
