NSCA ACCEPTING PROPOSALS FOR EXPO '08 COURSES

The best thing about knowledge is that it can be shared, making everyone wiser. Those subscribing to this notion will be interested to learn that the NSCA Education Department is now accepting proposals for educational presentations to be given at next year's expo. Expo 2008 exhibits are scheduled for Feb. 21-23, 2008, with the conference being held Feb. 19-23, 2008.

Expected to draw approximately 10,000 attendees, Expo 2008 will feature a full slate of workshops and seminars dedicated to systems integration and convergence. Special focus will be given to advanced- and expert-level classes covering both technical and business matters.

All proposals from prospective workshop/seminar leaders must be received at NSCA headquarters in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, by close of business on July 1, 2007. Proposals can be submitted online at cfp.nscaexpo.org. Contact Chad Sowers at csowers@nsca.org or (800) 446-6722 for more information

EDUCATION FOUNDATION EARMARKS $150,000 IN CONTRIBUTIONS FOR EDUCATION

While on the topic of education, the NSCA Education Foundation announced that it has received $150,000 to fund student outreach, scholarships, and memberships in the 2007-2008 fiscal year. In addition, the foundation will provide financial assistance to industry professionals as well as develop and fund curriculum for industry programs.

The contributions come to the foundation based upon the cumulative results of an industry challenge by Shure and Atlas Sound that encouraged the rest of the industry to contribute $100,000 to the cause. Under the terms of the joint challenge, once this goal was met, Shure and Atlas would then raise the ante at a rate of $25,000 each in matching funds, bringing the total to $150,000.

"The program was an overwhelming success," says Shure U.S. vice president and general manager, Al Hershner. "We even met our goal three months ahead of schedule. Special thanks needs to go to our friends at Atlas Sound, who matched our 'matching' commitment, and to everyone else who contributed."

NEW "ESSENTIALS" CD-ROM RELEASED

With all this talk of getting smarter, it's definitely worth noting that the Essentials of Systems Integration V.06 CD-ROM is now available to corporate members.

“The Essentials CD is a great resource,” says Jerry Hanson, executive vice president of Standard Electronics. “The employee review forms and HR documents have saved us the time and money it takes to research, design, and implement the forms. The CD more than pays for the cost of our NSCA membership.”

A valuable resource including more than 650 industry-standard forms and agreements widely used in human resources, legal, financial, and other matters, the disk lets you wisely dedicate more time to billable hours and less time to routine policy and paperwork. Corporate members can quickly customize an employee manual template to suit their own needs, write a world-class business plan, effortlessly draft a tuition reimbursement form, and more with the templates available on the CD-ROM.

Corporate members who have already renewed their membership for 2007 should have received a copy of the disk by mail. Others can renew today to obtain the disk before their renewal date or upgrade to a corporate membership to receive this benefit. Contact Jodi Montgomery at jmontgomery@nsca.org or (800) 446-6722 for more information.
