EAST PETERSBURG, Pa. - The National Association of Oilheating Service Managers (NAOHSM) has changed its name to the National Association of Oil & Energy Service Professionals (OESP). Judy Garber, executive director, said the new title honors the association’s past while looking toward the future of the industry. “It builds on NAOHSM’s more than half century of accomplishment. OESP remains dedicated to the advancement of all energy service professionals through education and support.”

The association noted that NAOHSM was founded in 1954 and, since then, there have been many changes to the world, as well as to the heating industry.

“Our members wear many hats,” said Garber. “The title ‘service manager’ has either gone away or has evolved into the position of general manager, lead technician, district manager, or even sales manager. Our members do so much more that just service oil-heat accounts. The idea of a new name that reflects who we are has been discussed for probably five years. As a matter of fact, last year we thought we had a new name and then, after consideration, many realized the proposed name was missing our core roots - oil heat. The new name, the National Association of Oil & Energy Service Professionals, reflects our history, as well as our present and future.”

Members approved the official name change at the association’s 58th Annual Convention in Hershey, Pa. To commemorate the change, OESP is inviting professionals to take advantage of a free, six-month trial membership.
