Hello Fellow Rotarians and Friends:

I’m stepping out a bit here as I begin my year of service as president of Club 27, the Rotary Club of Des Moines, Iowa.

One of my goals as president it to be intentional about promoting what our Club does and its value to the greater Des Moines community and world beyond.  Thus, I hatched this idea of creating a podcast as a different way of approaching this goal.

I’m no expert and I don’t profess to know all there is about my I-Mac’s GarageBand software, but bear with me.  I’m sure that I’ll learn as I go.

Let me know what you think about how I might improve this effort or what topics and subjects you’d like me to cover.

Thanks for listening!

BBB Accredited Businesses pay a fee for accreditation review/monitoring and for support of BBB services to the public.”

Additionally, the report notes “BBB accreditation does not mean that the business’ products or services have been evaluated or endorsed by BBB, or that BBB has made a determination as to the business’ product quality or competency in performing services.”

The Better Business Bureau has not recorded a single customer complaint for Protex Central in the last three years.  Protex Central has been a member of the BBB since 1999.

In announcing the report, Shawn Mullen, President and Chief Energy Officer, commented that “we are pleased to be recognized by the BBB for our commitment to customer satisfaction.  We believe it’s the cornerstone of our core purpose to strengthen our business by protecting yours.”
