Hard to believe we can't find a steam guy in the area, eh?

It's a bit far

@ July 26, 2002 7:09 AM in New Paltz steam - Dan H.

for the Dog to do from Long Island (although I know he'd shine with it). I'm surprised that we can't find a closer pro. Opportunity knocks.

@ July 24, 2002 3:33 PM in Ralph Suppa named CIPH President - Dan H.

Toronto, July 15, 2002. Ralph Suppa was recently appointed President of the Canadian Institute of Plumbing & Heating (CIPH) by the Board of Directors. Incoming CIPH Chairman of the Board Case de Jong (Kindred Industries) made the announcement at the association's 70th Annual General Meeting on June 24, 2002. Suppa succeeds Ed Hardison who has retired as President after 16 years. Ralph Suppa has played a key role in the development of CIPH programs since joining the association in 1988. He has worked closely with industry members, associations and government over the past several years, to develop the CSA B214.01: the important Installation Code for Hydronic Heating Systems which will become part of the Canadian Building Code in 2003. During his career with CIPH, Suppa has also managed the Canadian Hydronics Council, the Plumbing Industry Advisory Council, the Canadian Advisory Council on Plumbing, the Education & Training Council, the Manufacturers Division, the Membership Committee, the Annual Business Conference, the Canadian Association of Pump Manufacturers, the Canadian Water Quality Association and CIPH Ontario Region. Among his recent accomplishments, Suppa, along with representatives from the Mechanical Contractors Association of Canada (MCAC) and the Mechanical Contractors Association of Alberta (MCAA), was successful in securing the bid for the 2008 World Plumbing Conference in Canada during WPC 2002 in Berlin. A dedicated association executive, Suppa holds the Certified Association Executive (CAE) designation from the Canadian Society of Association Executives (CSAE) and is a graduate of York University in Toronto. He is also a Past President of the Trillium Chapter of CSAE. CIPH is the Canadian association of manufacturers, wholesaler distributors, master distributors, manufacturers agents and allied companies who manufacture and distribute plumbing, hydronic heating, industrial, waterworks and other mechanical products. CIPH wholesalers operate more than 600 warehouses and showrooms across Canada. CIPH members directly employ more than 10,000 Canadians and total industry sales exceed $3 billion annually.

@ July 18, 2002 3:06 PM in The chatty customer (starch)

taught me a trick years ago. Before he goes into an appointment he sets the alarm on his watch. If the customer is chatty and he wants to leave when the watch goes off, he'll shut off the alarm and the customer will say, "Do you have to be somewhere?" Al will then explain that he has an appointment, and that gets him back on the road. If he's in the middle of an important conversation with the customer, however, he'll shut off the alarm when it goes off, and when the customer asks if he has an appointment, Al will say, "It can wait. This is much more important." Works like a charm.

Carol Fey

@ July 17, 2002 11:39 AM in A GREAT electrical seminar - Dan H.

is the woman who writes the books on electricity and hydronic controls and troubleshooting that we sell in Books & More. She has a passion for her subject and she's an award-winning teacher. I've worked with her in the past and I'll be working with her again this September at the GasNetworks Heating Professional Fall Conference in Massachusetts. She has a way of bringing her subject to life with terrific props and plain-English explanations. Carol is flying in from Colorado next month to do three seminars. The title is Review of Electricity and Electrical Troubleshooting. If you've got young people in need of solid training, or if you just want to get better at what you do, I HIGHLY recommend this course. Here are the dates and locations: August 13 - Fort Washington (near Philly), PA August 14 - Union, NJ August 15 - Plainview, Long Island NAOSHM is sponsoring all three and your investment (including breakfast and lunch) is just $95 ($75 if you're a NAOHSM member). The course will also earn you NORA CEUs. To register, call Judy Garber, Goddess of Oil Heat, at 1-888-552-0900. Do it soon!
