The Penn-Del-Jersey Chapter continued to distinguish itself at the 2019 NECA Convention and Trade Show by attending with a record setting 85 Members and guests. This was the largest Penn-Del-Jersey Chapter delegation to ever attend a West Coast Convention!
Our Chapter was proud to join NECA Members from across the country in a myriad of networking, education, and professional development opportunities. We also enjoyed hearing from inspiring keynote speakers including Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh, Five for Fighting Singer/Songwriter John Ondrasik, and Veteran Combat Pilot & White House Advisor Nicole Malachowski. Our Chapter’s very own Member Joe Marrone of Miller Brothers gave an excellent presentation on “Contractor’s Challenges and Successes in Energy Storage” that was very well attended. Finally, attendees enjoyed the Convention’s Closing Celebration: a performance of Cirque du Soleil’s “Michael Jackson ONE” at the Mandalay Bay.
At the Convention, the Penn-Del-Jersey Chapter also hosted numerous networking events for its own Members. These included an Opening Ceremony Reception, a tailgate party during the Eagles vs. Falcons game, a joint dinner with the Western PA Chapter, NECA; and a Closing Ceremony Dinner. Special thanks to our Associate Members at Graybar for sponsoring the Philadelphia Eagles tailgate and to Joel Petersheim and Simone DiCiantis at Milwaukee Tool for joining us at the Closing Ceremony dinner.
Thank you to all who attended, and please be sure to save the date for next year’s NECA Convention in Chicago, Illinois from October 3 – 6, 2020!
