Back from the NAVTP Forum and had a great time. It was nice to see everyone out in San Francisco. All the presentations were really good. Each time I attend a conference like this I realize how much I don't know and how much I have to learn. One presentation given by David Cooper covered his escalator accident research data which included videos! These were unbelievable and made the hair on the back of my neck stand up. We're going to see if we can coordinate a telephone interview for the show. If you saw these videos your jaw would drop. On some happier news The EESF Silent auction raised $3,000 which was great and everyone have a good time. If you're a consultant and aren't a member of the NAVTP you should consider joining. They are a great group of industry professionals. (Pictured Right: Casimer Cader, Passes Away At 83.)
