WEEKLY EDITION June 14, 2017 A Message on Membership from Overseas P SAI International Member Alison Elliot of Ellco Rentals Ltd. in Barbados give her perspective on PSAI Membership for international companies The PSAI is proud to be an international association serving its Members all across the globe. Yet with the majority of our Membership being located in North America, how to bes t serve our International Members has long been discussed. The PSAI encourages all of those involved in portable sanitation from all parts of the world to join our organization. In doing so, we understand that there will be nation - specific and market - speci fic needs that PSAI will not be able to directly influence on a short term basis . Thankfully, the PSAI has groups such as the International Advisory Council, co - chaired by Jake Groen of PolyJohn Canada and Mike Rice of A - Throne. Representatives from our Internationa l Member companies make up this council, whose role is to provide information and insight into industry trends in regions outside of the United States to inform strategic direction and PSAI decision - making. They also recommend approaches that will engage t he PSAI with Operators and S uppliers outside the United States. This council helps bridge the gap between PSAI initiatives and their international equivalent. Has this been enough t o productively assist our International Members? One representative of the council seems to think so. Keep reading on page 2 for a message written by Alison E lliot of Ellco Rentals Ltd., an International Member located in Bar bados, regarding her experience with the PSAI. Meet PSAI Scholarship Winner Bri an Carey Brian plans to graduate from Rutgers University in 2018 with a degree in Civil Engineering Each year when the PSAI awards its five scholarships, the merit scores are based on basic criteria such as GPA, ACT or SAT score, and the ability to pen a well - w ritten essay on the importance of portable sanitation. However, each of our winners also bring an impressive list of extracurriculars and credentials to the table. Brian Carey is no exception. Brian is the son of Dan and Sharon Carey from Boonton, New Jer sey. His father, Dan, is an employee of United Site Services. Brian is a rising senior at Rutgers University – New Brunswick in New Brunswick, New Jersey. In high school, Brian was a member of YMCA Leaders Club, the American Legion Jersey Boys State, his high school's concert band, jazz band, and pit band, played varsity tennis, and was captain of his varsity soccer team. In college he is involved in intramural soccer and the Rutgers Move In Team. To add to his impressive resumé, Brian has worked for the town of Boonton, the Southeast Morris County Municipal Utilities Authority, the Knolls Country Club, and was most recently a Utility Services Intern for PS&S Engineering. While his leadership roles, involvement, and academic performance certainly contributed to his high score in the scholarship pool , his essay speaks volumes about his worthiness as a scholarship winner as well.
