BICSI makes big announcement
BICSI has announced the extension of the regular credential recertification and membership renewal grace period for those affected by recent natural disasters.
“The recent catastrophic events around the world, like the hurricanes here in the United States and our CALA District, and the earthquakes in Mexico have called for BICSI to act, because we truly care about our members and credential holders around the world. At our most recent Board meeting, we passed a motion to double the grace period to six months for credential recertification and membership renewal for areas affected by the hurricanes and earthquakes. This will allow our members and credential holders to focus on their families and homes, as well as other equally important matters, at this time,” says BICSI president Brian Ensign
The general session continued with educational presentations on remote powering over communications cabling; data centre standards; security inside the white space; optical trends in the data centre; and protecting critical infrastructure from bad habits.
The Exhibit Hall was full of participating attendees as more than 120 exhibitors spoke to the audience about the latest products and solutions that will help them in their careers.
“BICSI has always been fantastic for us,” says FreeAxes employee Walter Taylor.
“The thing I like most about the Exhibit Hall is that the members take the time to learn about what we’re selling and educate themselves. The people are very professional and they are leaders in their fields. It’s a pleasure to work and speak with them. We are rewarded with projects as a result of the relationships we have developed at the BICSI conferences.”
Other activities allowed new exhibitors to speak with attendees about their latest industry advancements as well as the BICSI Theatre where exhibitors shared new information in short ‘What’s New? What’s It Do?’ presentations.
To complement this, the BICSI Theatre also hosted the Cabling Innovators Awards, presented by Cabling Installation and Maintenance.
