He says of this position: “I’ve never worked with a group that has worked so diligently to create such a stellar technical program. The quality of this conference surpasses anything I’ve ever seen. We have expanded the spectrum of topics on both ends to cover installation, operations, and maintenance, as well as advances in process control. When you attend, you will gain knowledge gathered and shared by peers with hundreds of years of combined experience—peers who understand what you do. It’s simply a technical program that is absolutely superior and unmatched at any other conference. Join us!”
