MEET YOU IN MONCTON!
Occurring every two years, the MEET (Mechanical Electrical Electronic Technology) show continues to be an important venue for dialogue, discussion and discovery. Year after year, the show continues to grow in scope, delivering more exhibitors and more visitors with each passing event.
Once again, Electrical Business is pleased to serve as the Official Electrical Publication for MEET. The four sponsoring associations (CIPH, ASHRAE, EFC and IESNA) are offering a cutting-edge seminar program to complement the trade show and increase the value to all attendees. The Industry Dinner is slated for May 7 at the DELTA BEAUSEJOUR. Make sure you reserve your tickets early for this night of networking, entertainment, great food and fun.
As usual, stay tuned to E-Line for MEET updates.

GOLFING FOR TRADE SCHOOL IN DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
the August 2007 edition of Electrical Business, John Vickery of Vickery
Electric told us about his trip to the Dominican Republic and the need
to develop a trade school, thereby creating attainable education in the
region. Of course, funds are needed to help achieve this laudable goal,
which is why John is hosting a Fundraising Golf Tournament at the Royal
Ashburn Golf Club (home of the Canadian Tour Fall Qualifier) on May 27.

BUILDING PERMITS NOVEMBER 2007
The value of building permits fell in November 2007, says StatsCan, but remained slightly above the $6-billion mark for a seventh consecutive month. Municipalities issued building permits worth $6 billion, down 9.9% from October 2007. Fewer construction intentions for both residential and non-residential buildings contributed to this decline.
On a year-to-date basis, the total value of building permits issued by municipalities from January to November 2007 hit $68.1 billion, up 12.4% from the total for the first 11 months of 2006. This total was also 2.8% higher than the previous annual record of $66.3 billion set in 2006. The strong results came from gains in both residential and non-residential sectors.
In the non-residential sector, intentions fell 17.5% to $2.2 billion in November. A rise in industrial construction intentions was insufficient to offset strong decreases in the commercial and institutional components. The residential sector followed suit with a 5% decline to $3.9 billion. A slight gain in single housing could not make up for a dive in the multi-family component. Municipalities approved 19,659 new units, down 4.3%.
November’s decline in the total value of permits was spread across the country as every province, except for Newfoundland & Labrador and Manitoba, recorded decreases.
“SHARPEN YOUR EDGE” AT EASA CONVENTION & EXPOSITION
The Electrical Apparatus Service Association (EASA) is holding its convention and exposition from June 22 to 24 at the Gaylord Texan Resort & Convention Center (Grapevine, Texas), and this year’s theme is “Sharpen Your Edge”.
“I have noticed throughout my business life that many companies have prospered more than others,” said EASA chair George Stratton. “Those successful ones have managed to sharpen their edge by continuing to grow into areas that support their core businesses.”
The convention program offers attendees numerous technical and sales/management seminars each day. A companion trade show features manufacturers and service providers highlighting the latest developments in electric motors, drives and controls, generators, and other electromechanical equipment (as well as services to the electro-mechanical industry).
MORLITE’S NEW INFORMATIVE WEBSITE

Downloadable information includes new spec sheets and product briefs. Although you can search for a sales rep by state, there’s only one for Canada: Thomas Lighting Canada in Markham, Ont.
