Reflecting on NRVMA 2015 in Roanoke, Virginia……………
I would like to thank our loyal membership for their attendance at our recent conference. We could not have asked for better weather to hold our Spray Demonstration. The facilities were great and the demonstration was very informative. I would like to thank Summit Helicopters for the use of their facilities. I would also like to thank Norstar Industries for transporting their spray truck to use in the demonstration.
The entire agenda was outstanding. Thanks to Carl Wells and the Planning Committee for developing the program. I have heard nothing but outstanding comments about the topics and speakers for the educational sessions. It will be hard to top the sessions and demonstration for our next conference. If you have suggestions for our 2016, please send that information to me as soon as you can. We are in our planning process for 2016.
I would like to recognize our winners of the
Turney Hernandez Award of Excellence:
- Clyde Mason, Indiana Dept.of Transportation.(Retired)
