NAOHSM Changes Name to National Association of OESP

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). Members approved the official name change on May 24 at their 58th annual convention in Hershey, Pa.

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.”

NAOHSM was founded in 1954 with Hugh McKee as its president. Since then, there have been many changes to the world, as well as to the heating industry, the association noted.

“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.”

To commemorate this change, OESP invites industry personnel to take advantage of a free, six-month trial membership, with the ability to network with other service professionals in one’s local chapter and attend training programs that will advance one’s skills.
