The 2009 Symposium will have the same high-quality educational sessions as in past years. Topics and speakers were carefully chosen by this year’s Planning Committee to offer timely and accurate information from experienced and thought-provoking presenters. Please bring your “ace” mechanics to the Symposium as a means of training and recognition.

The theme of this year’s Conference is "Utility Systems Reliability: Maximizing Operations - Minimizing Risk".

   3. Water, Sewer Systems
   4. Electrical Systems

Day 2
   5. How do we prepare ourselves for increased reliability through Staff Training Programs? Utility Systems Drills & Effective Tracers

   6. Case Studies: 15-minutes from each chapter's selected health care facility on what they do at their facility to "Max ops - Min risk" in their utility systems (testing, training, cool equipment, documentation, one-lines, etc)

 Washington State Society for Healthcare EngineeringOne of the many enhancements being made to the 2008 Semi Annual Symposium is that this will be an Environmentally Friendly Conference. We felt that it is important to do our share to reduce the negative impact we may have on the environment. We are excited about the 2009 Semi Annual Symposium and after putting together this program, we are sure you will be too. With the Semi Annual Symposium growing each year we encourage you to register early and secure your spot!

I look forward to seeing you there!!
