Basics Program Expansion Considered for 2015

Following another successful and well-rated Valve Basics Seminar & Exhibits event in Kansas City, April 2-3, members of the committee responsible for development of the Valve Ed program met to discuss future program plans, including the addition of a new one-day 201 course, which would be held on the third day of the event.

"We've been asking attendees for a number of years if they would sign up for another course, such as a 201-level course, and the response has been very, very positive," said Greg Johnson of United Valve, who serves as committee chairman. Among the topics under consideration are lessons on standards, valve repair and industry-specific valve applications.

As soon as plans are finalized, information will be announced in this newsletter and posted on VMA.org. The next 2-day Valve Basics Seminar & Exhibits will be held at Planet Hollywood in LasVegas, Oct. 30-31, 2014. Registration opens in June.
