THE FIRST MEETING

1987

In late 1987, a group of designers and product representatives met and discussed starting a local ASPE chapter.  Those in attendance formed the core of the Piedmont (Charlotte) Chapter of ASPE. Following what is now known as the chapter’s first meeting, an interim board was formed with the support of local representatives
