A Message from Carol Oliver, Your Northeast Region Director

Stand Up and Be Recognized
We’re midway through the planned BICSI U.S. Northeast Region Meetings for the year. Our next one will be on August 20 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (joint with the BICSI North-Central Region) and it will quickly be upon us, as summer has a way of flying by. Again, there will be a great line up of speakers and topics.

I want to take this space and time to mention that every single presentation, every single speaker at the Northeast region meetings have done an outstanding job presenting on their subject matters and on their delivery of trends, solutions and products transforming our industry. We have seen a variety of the latest technologies, services and standards and I appreciate the time and effort that these speakers have given to present these topics. I am very grateful to the volunteers who take the time to provide us with the most up-to-date information on topics that are molding the future of our industry.

Henry Franc, RCDD, OSP, of Belden and F. Patrick Mahoney, RCDD, of Cannon Design, presented on the "TIA-4994 Standard for Sustainable Information Communications Technology" at the Northeast Region Meeting on June 4, in Niagara Falls, New York.

Here are just a few topics from the most recent meetings in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Niagara Falls, New York:

  • Counterfeit Communications Cable
  • Life Safety and Designing Fire-Rated Assemblies
  • Electrical Power Distribution
  • TIA Sustainability Standards
  • New AV Design Technology
  • Wireless Design
  • Jetted Fiber Design (air blown)
  • Project Specification Practices

For those who have not been able to attend a region meeting so far, you can visit and view the presentations there—all will be uploaded by month's end. I encourage you to attend a meeting, meet the speakers and find out even more on these topics.

Enjoy your summer and I hope to see you at future industry events such as the remaining region meetings: August 20 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; October 27 in Foxboro, Massachusetts; at the joint Southeast region meeting on November 19 in Dulles, Virginia; and at the 2015 BICSI Fall Conference & Exhibition in Las Vegas, Nevada, September 20-24.

Proudly serving as your BICSI U.S. Northeast Region Director,
Carol Everett Oliver, RCDD, ESS
