Thank you for attending! Check out the blog for a Meeting recap, event photos and future Chapter events.

Thank you to the 220+ people who attended our Winter Meeting in Greenville, SC. This marked one of the largest Meetings in Chapter history. We wish to thank our founding members, board members, committee members and all of the participants who supported us during our event in Greenville, Data Center Emerging Design & Trends. 

At 2 p.m. on Thursday we had a breakout session on Unforeseen Risks and Opportunities in Data Center Transformation by Michael Orell, President of Figure 8. Next, Terry Rodgers, VP/National Leader Commissioning & Building Analytics, spoke on Embedding O&M in CF Design and Construction. 

Lastly, we heard from Amy Landis and Robin Daly with WiMCO successes and "What's Next". Melinda Parrish Brumfield, Vice President, Director of Development - Privates Markets and Leah Farlow, Director of Marketing - Infrapros joined them with 2 WOW Moments to wrap up the session. 

We had a great Networking Reception sponsored by Generex to end day one. 

After breakfast Friday morning, Vali Sorrel, 7X24 Carolina's President, let us know the "State of the Chapter". Robin Daly was recognized for her over 10 years of service to the Chapter as Executive Director. Chad Martin assumed the duties at the beginning of the year.

Our Keynote speaker, Steve Lerch of Story Arc Consulting  gave us something to think about with a presentation entitled “Innovation Leadership -Inspiring Your People to Think Differently.”  Ryan Kennedy, Atom Power closed out our presentation showing us “How a Technology Platform Can Unify an Industry."

Mark Lewis ended our successful Meeting with a fun twist! The winners had to dance their way up to claim their prize. 

We are grateful for our Sponsors who made this Winter Meeting possible as well as Amy Landis and our Programs Committee for all of their hard work. Thank you to our President, Vali Sorrell for leading our Chapter Meeting.
