The Association of Equipment Management Professionals (AEMP), formerly the Equipment Maintenance Council, will host its management conference and 20th annual meeting in Nashville, TN. The conference, scheduled for April 14 through April 16, 2002, will address some of the latest trends in equipment management, provide insight into the industry’s new products and services and be a venue for networking with other industry professionals.
According to AEMP’s Executive Director Stan Orr, the conference is a great educational opportunity for new managers, seasoned professionals and individuals aspiring to management careers.
“We have included several high-level management topics in our seminar program for 2002,” said Orr. “There will be demonstrations, hands-on training, panel discussions and classroom-style seminars which focus on giving managers skills they can take back and use in all aspects of their business.”
The conference features 18 different educational seminars covering a variety of managerial and maintenance topics. Budgeting, asset liquidation, specification writing, manpower utilization and life-cycle analysis are a few of the managerial subjects available at the conference. On the maintenance side, seminars and demonstrations in tire management, welding solutions, electrical training and radiator design are being offered. All seminars are led by subject matter experts.
Numerous vendors and suppliers will participate in the exposition portion of the conference. Attendees can view first-hand new products, services and technological advances that could make a difference in their business this year.
