Mark Your Calendars: Saturday November 12th & Sunday November 13th – Demo Days

Last year was the first year that the Technical committee added the demo days to the guidelines for the Technical Achievement Award.  Each technology is presented by the manufactures to the blue ribbon panel of judges, followed by a Q&A period and hands-on for the committee.  This was found to be a valuable in addition to the Award and will continue this year with an added bonus. After the presentation to the judges, the companies have been invited to demonstrate their gear to the SOC members.  A detailed invitation will be sent to the membership including the schedule of presentations.

Thank you in advance for our blue ribbon panel of Technical Achievement Award judges:
