PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The National Association of Oil Heating Service Managers (NAOHSM) held its 57th annual convention and trade show on May 23-27. The 2010 theme was Superheroes of Service, and according to Judy Garber, executive administrator of NAOHSM, the convention was “a tribute to the men and women who make our industry shine.”

Also, the annual golf tournament raised more than $10,000 for the Dave Nelsen Scholarship.

During the convention, NAOHSM offered courses on resets, condensing boilers, steam, ECM motors, solar, propane, and new technologies. John Barba, Dan Holohan, Dave Yates, and other industry experts led seminars that entertained and informed. George McQueeney, national president of NAOHSM, emphasized the importance of continued education, saying that the seminars “covered subjects that are pertinent not only to our industry, but also to the emerging-alternative energy market.”

Exhibitors showcased their products and services at a widely attended trade show, and students and technicians had a lively competition that tested their skills.

NAOHSM will host its 58th annual convention May 22-26, 2011, in Hershey, Pa.
