NAEC Convention

2017 NAEC Convention Postponed


Hot off the email. The NAEC Conference next week has been postponed due to hurricane Irma. It is totally the right move to make and I'm not sure an easy one.  Keep those in the islands that got hit hard in your thoughts and prayers as well as our friends and family in Florida there too. Let's not forget those in Houston still dealing with Harvey and the clean up effort. 

9/7/17 - 2:04 PM CST
From the NAEC Board and Staff
Due to Hurricane Irma’s anticipated effect on Orlando, NAEC’s Convention & Expo scheduled for September 11 – 14, 2017, is postponed.  We are working currently on new dates and will send information as soon as we know details.  We will address any questions at that time. 
Please know we are carefully reviewing the industry calendar as well as religious and national holidays.  
Thank you for the outpouring of understanding, care, and appreciation.  Your kindness and expression of support this week has given us renewed energy to focus on meeting the needs of everyone!

Post: September 7th, 2011: ERS-2011-09-07 #268 Show Notes

Click Here to download ERS-2011-09-07 #268 As we head into the weekend please take a moment on Sunday September 11th, to remember those who were killed during the worst terrorist attack on US soil, a few of which were elevator mechanics trying to help those in the buildings. All of us will never forget that day as we watched in horror the footage those two planes hitting the building. Fly your US flags, if you don’t have one, go get one. On a more upbeat note I’m getting excited for the NAEC convention next week and am looking forward to seeing many of you during the round table and on the show floor. Shorter show today as there weren’t a ton of news articles online but a few that were interesting to say the least. I’ve also got the caption contest captions available in the comments section of the site and am asking you to vote via e-mail for the one you like the best. I had ever intention on getting up last week but just fell short on time.  For those of you traveling to New Orleans next week have safe travels.  Download the Apple App the NAEC has created. Looks like a pretty cool little tool.
