NWIBRT has continued to bring new and exciting networking opportunities to its members over the last several weeks! On the heels of our successful annual golf outing, NWIBRT held our first ever Shrimp Boil (see pictures below) and we are also launching two new series of networking events - Walk & Talks and Meet & Mingles

As the number of networking opportunities continues to grow, we encourage members to keep eye on their inbox for information about new events, training opportunities, and committee meetings. Check out our upcoming opportunities below!

Following us on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn is also a great way to stay up-to-date on NWIBRT happenings!
Welcome Our New Associate Members of September!  
What's Happening in Our Committees

Reliability Committee hosted  a FREE workshop on October 11th as part of NWIBRT's Week of Training. The covered topics were "Repairing Electric Motors for Reliability" and "Repair vs. Replacement Decision Making."  The event received a lot of positive feedback and the committee will continue to organize training opportunities for NWIBRT members!

The next committee meeting will be held on November 8th at 10:30 a.m.

Business Development & Marketing Committee  hosted its first ever Shrimp Boil on Sept. 21st. Members were able to socialize while they enjoyed endless food, music, and cold beer. For more information about the event and to see more pictures, visit our Facebook page! We look forward to hosting this event again in 2018, so keep watch for more details to come.

The BDMC also hosted the first in a new series of FREE networking events we're calling Walk & Talks

The Walk & Talk at the Pratt Paper Mill was held on October 6th. Members who attended the event were greeted by Paul Ramcheck, operations manager at the mill, who delivered an introduction to Pratt industries including some of their plans for the future. Ramcheck and his team then took members on a guided tour of the facility allowing everyone to observe the mill's process from start to finish.
