Matt Watson, Linkbelt Construction Equipment, Lexington, KY, Being new to ATMAE and this being my first ATMAE conference, I was unsure about what to expect. I found a group of people who are passionate about the industry and welcoming to a first timer. I see this as a great way to make new contacts and friends in both industry and academia. The networking aspect that accompanies the conference is now one of the driving factors for my involvement. It is great opportunity to get fresh ideas on topics that you are interested in as well as a chance to get some constructive criticism. Overall, the conference adds to our careers in a way that can only be understood by experiencing it firsthand.

One page proposals should be sent by, February 8, 2013, to Dave Monforton, ATMAE Conference Planner, Dave(at)atmae(dot)org. For more information on the proposal process,click here.
