I’ve been in attendance at the 2011 SMRP conference in Greensboro,NC. Marshall Institute has an exhibitor booth set up and I have had the pleasure of manning this booth at various times when not attending the many training sessions offered this week. I have really enjoyed getting reacquainted with clients and friends I have had the pleasure of working with in the past as well as meeting new friends and acquaintances who share my passion for maintenance and reliability. If you are not an SMRP member, I highly recommend this organization. SMRP is a great recourse for improving your maintenance knowledge and skills through training, literature, networking, and support. Some of the highlights of this conference have been; really interesting papers, workshops, and breakout sessions given by many of the “Who’s Who” of the maintenance and reliability world. The exhibition hall was also packed with leading industry companies offering products and services specifically related to maintenance and reliability.
