Connections in Las Vegas turned out to be an awesome event and, as usual, the SCRT had a strong presence there.

At the SCRT membership reception one lucky member’s name was drawn for the $100 bill that was given away. We also gave away $350 at the end of Connections in cash prizes to SCRT members who were still in attendance and had registered at our booth. The booth was very active, and several new members joined SCRT.

Be prepared for Connections Conference and Exhibition in Florida in May 2012, as it will be a bigger show than we have had in the past. There will be a lot of changes so donAt miss this one. As SCRT Members, you are really missing out on some great networking, education and great deals on equipment if you are not there.

  SCRT Michigan Chapter
Food, fellowship and education were enjoyed at the Michigan SCRT Chapter meeting on Sept. 21 at Great Lakes Steamway in Wayne, Mich. Bruce DeLoatch put on an instructional demonstration of thermography and thermal imagers. Bruce ran through equipment use, and also included information on using the technology as a revenue source for cleaners in the restoration business. A complimentary dinner provided by Steamway was enjoyed by all.

SCRT Chapter meetings focus on providing information for running a successful business. Changes in cleaning chemistry, equipment, practices and procedures are highlighted to improve management skills. All meeting are open to SCRT members and visitors and some include IICRC CE credits.
