Why I love attending the NAEO annual conference

The National Amtelco Equipment Owner's (NAEO) annual conference starts next week and it got me thinking about what specifically I look forward to. There are so many things I had a hard time narrowing it down, but these are probably my top 10 reasons/benefits (in no particular order):

1. Have loads of fun, laughs and adventure

2. Meet new people

3. Reconnect with some 'old' friends (in person)

4. Sharing ideas and support with industry colleagues

5. Visit a city I've never been to before; or explore different areas of a city that I have been to before

6. Learn about new software and features

7. Learn new programming skills/techniques

8. Learn more about different industry best practices

9. Discover more opportunities on how to be more involved with the association

10. Bringing back all the new ideas and experiences back to share with our crew!

Our Values

Intercon is all about education and we educate continually. We have a wonderful education grid which is designed for anyone within the company to advance at a pace that is reasonable but challenging.  We also have regular staff meetings to encourage you on your journey of personal and professional growth. 

We believe having fun at work matters and try to laugh often.  We also plan fun activities all year around.

Flexibility means you work all types of shifts and to us being flexible means when you ask for a day off you get it.  It also means to us that you get every second weekend off.  It also means that if you choose to pick up extra shifts, we do not discourage that.

By design we work everyday on building a culture of respect.  Part of our personal development includes sessions designed to increase self-respect and respect for others.  To the best of our ability we act and behave respectfully toward all.

Our organization teaches integrity and we use that word in the context of if I say I will do it, I do it.  I do what I say I will do.

By educating, having fun, being flexible, respectful and teaching people to do what they say they will do we are in the position and have the organizational capacity to create innovative solutions for our clients.

We live by the above values of education, fun, flexibility, respect, integrity and innovation and use these three guiding principles to make these decisions:
