The 2017 Fall Conference September 28-30 in North Charleston, South Carolina was one of the best attended in recent memory, with over seventy motor shop personnel present, joined by almost that many vendors and exhibitors. Managerial/Sales attendees enjoyed a full-day seminar presented by renowned speaker Joe Ellers on Outselling the Competition and a half-day class on Expanding Your Business Offerings into Motor Equipment Management by Rick Hollen of Spring Point Solutions. Technical attendees were able to choose
between two tracks: Fundamentals of Pump Repair presented by EASA Technical Support Specialist Gene Vogel; and Ultrasound and Thermographic Testing of Electric Motors by Don Donofrio of The Snell Group with Adrian Messer of UE Systems Inc. and Energized and Non-Energized Motor Testing to ANSI Standards by Don Donofrio. In addition to our usual good food, drawings, networking and camaraderie, our exhibit hall featured exhibit tables from over forty vendors.
