My Take

newjaneresize2 thumb thumbOn The Road With An All-Star Team Of Experts

Cold winds have already begun blowing across Chicagoland—early and often, like they always do. About this time each year, my thoughts start wandering off to warmer places. While Texas and Alabama typically get my nod, I currently have Florida on my mind. You should, too.

That’s because Applied Technology Publications is sponsoring three great 2-day workshops, January 14-15, 2013, at the Lake Buena Vista Resort in Orlando. Presented by several members of our All-Star Team of industry experts, these workshops offer a cost-effective and convenient professional-development avenue for you and/or members of your own All-Star Teams.

 Check them out, then sign up for the one of your choice: 

—Workshop #1: “Introduction To Planning & Scheduling” 

Instructor: Ken Bannister, Contributing Editor, Maintenance Technology and Lubrication Management & Technology

—Workshop #2: “Pump System Optimization: Uptime, Reliability, Efficiency”

Instructor: Bill Livoti, Contributing Editor, Maintenance Technology and Lubrication Management & Technology

—Workshop #3: “Oil Monitoring Analyst Preparation Class”

Instructor: Ray Thibault, CLS, OMA I, OMA II, Contributing Editor, Lubrication Management & Technology

You know these instructors. You read them. You respect them. Their Orlando workshops provide a wonderful opportunity to learn from and network with them and—let’s just say it—pick their brains. The practical information and techniques that workshop attendees take away from these classes will be invaluable to their respective operations. For details on the content of these in-depth workshops, along with pricing lodging and registration info, please visit Or call Kathleen Jaros at 847.382.8100 x 117.

Please take note: Our January All-Star Team Workshops will be held at the same venue as the
2013 IR/Info Conference, presented by our good friends at Infraspection Institute. Paid attendees at our workshops will be able to network with the exhibitors and attendees of IR/Info, at no charge.

I urge you to begin planning your January trip to Florida, ASAP. Registration for our All-Star Team Workshops is open, but space is limited. Don’t let this early-winter opportunity get away from you and your team. Ken, Bill and Ray look forward to seeing you in Orlando. MT
