    Standardized Engineering, STEPS and Dinner Meeting

    On Tuesday, March 13, at the Green Dragon Tavern and Museum located in Carlsbad, 24 seminar attendees listened carefully as CSA director Mike Sullaway, PE with Sullaway Engineering, outlined CSA’s Standardized Engineering and how it can be utilized. This CSA seminar was extremely well-received: Attendees were taking detailed notes and actively seeking additional insights from Sullaway. In addition, the subject matter is part of CSA STEPS (Sign Training & Education Program Series), to keep members informed and trained with the proper skill sets for the on-premise sign industry.

    Following the seminar, the networking began. The tavern and museum offered a terrific atmosphere for seminar participants who planned on staying for the CSA dinner meeting, as well as additional guests who showed up for the dinner presentation to mingle, beverages in hand. Eventually, 28 people sat down for dinner and camaraderie. Dinner was followed by a presentation to update guests on STEPS and Certification of Crane Operators. Those in attendance were excited to hear that the two STEPS Core Categories, Sign Installation/Service Technician and Sign Manufacture/Assembly Technician have kicked off. The deadline for crane operators to be OSHA certified is November 10, 2018.

    A big “thank you” to Mike Sullaway, PE and all who attended the March events!
