Ontario, Calif. — For its 89th annual Education and Business Conference, the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) is moving from “The Last Frontier” to the “Athens of America.” Attendees last year gathered in Anchorage, Alaska — this year they’ll converge on Philadelphia.
IAPMO’s 2018 conference will be held Sept. 30-Oct. 4 at the Sheraton Philadelphia Downtown, a 756-room hotel situated within walking distance of numerous historical landmarks and top attractions. IAPMO welcomes former NBA all-star Mark Eaton as the conference’s keynote speaker. The 12-year veteran with the Utah Jazz is a successful entrepreneur, TV and radio talk show host, and world-class speaker, trainer, and coach.
In addition to top-notch educational seminars, code workshops, industry expo, and invaluable networking opportunities, conference goers will have the opportunity to participate in the Assembly Consideration Session toward development of the 2021 editions of the Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC®) and Uniform Mechanical Code (UMC®). IAPMO is employing an accelerated schedule within its ANSI-accredited code development cycle for these editions.
Full-week and one-day registration packages are available, as well as a group rate on accommodations at the Sheraton Philadelphia Downtown. The deadline for early registration, with an $80 discount off the regular price, is Aug. 31.
“Whether you’re a first-year plumbing apprentice or Lifetime IAPMO member, attending the annual Education and Business Conference is an amazing experience that will enrich your life personally and professionally,” said IAPMO President DJ Nunez.
