May 24, 2013
ROCKVILLE, Md. — The Mechanical Service Contractors of America (MSCA) 28th Annual Educational Conference MSCA 2013 will be held Oct. 13-16, 2013, at the Boca Raton Resort & Club in Boca Raton, Fla.

The theme of this year’s conference, “Beyond Your Limits,” will run throughout the various sessions and activities. Among the speakers will be entrepreneur and business consultant Troy Hazard who will present "Beyond Tomorrow: How to Future-Proof Your Business with Purpose, Passion, People and Profits," and Vietnam War veteran and prison camp survivor Capt. Charles Plumb who will discuss "Tough Choices in Challenging Times."

Additional conference speakers include Mike Mullane, former NASA space shuttle commander, whose teamwork presentation will discuss the importance of expressing your perspective to ensure group success. Professional adventure racer Robyn Benincasa will share simple and easily applied skills that will allow attendees to create "Human Synergy" with all of the teammates in their lives, from colleagues to spouses and family. In addition, Thom Singer, speaker and author, will demonstrate how companies can be motivated to capture all the benefits of personal and professional networks.

On Oct. 13, a one-day bonus program "The Path to Higher Margins Is Not Business As Usual" will be held from 7:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. The day’s speakers, all successful mechanical service contractors, will provide attendees with a number of road-tested tactics on a variety of topics, including customer prioritization and how to determine where to spend your time, how to avoid the micro-managing trap, and managing call backs and tracking results.

The conference will also feature a variety of educational programs, peer group roundtable sessions, and a Supplier Partnership Day which will spotlight the event’s exhibitors and sponsors.

“Companies and individuals that look beyond their limits are destined to succeed,” said MSCA Chairman Robert A. Lake of EMCOR Services Mesa Energy Systems in Irvine, Calif. “The speakers at this year’s conference will provide the inspirational fuel attendees need to live outside their comfort zone and overcome boundaries that once seemed impenetrable.”
