Back from Penn State I had a great time at the Elevator U Conference. Great discussions, presentations and an interesting round table on MRL’s was something you’re not going to see at some of the other conferences. I guess that’s why I enjoy attending the EU Conference each year. Great to see many of you at the event and Penn State provided an excellent top notch facility. Thanks to Brad Haldeman, Terri Emmons and Glenn Duncan for their hard work in making the event a success along with the board of directors and committees. This week many of you are attending the CECA Convention which I hope is a success. Great show today including a recap of last week’s conference I’ve got some other great feedback and some good articles to cover on the show today.
