Steve GibsonSpring is in the air, and that makes me excited! Spring is known as the season of rebirth, when plants and animals emerge from their dormant winter state to grow and flourish in sun and nutrients. These months also mark the return of motorsports from the winter off season (big smile :-) ) and soon it will be time to take my Camaro back out to the dry lakes. I made some tuning changes over the winter, and am anxious to see what that equates to in
performance on the track.

I recently attended the VISION Training and Expo in Kansas City. Through the course of the conference, I was informed that at least 4 separate training presenters had mentioned and recommended NACAT in their presentations as a way to get involved in preparing the next generation of technicians. Wow! It feels good to see the hard work of the Board and Officers starting to pay off, and our industry peers are taking notice. We will continue to work and build more improvements into NACAT in the coming months, which will make the spotlight on us even brighter.

Did you receive NACAT’s new e-News in your inbox recently? These monthly newsletters are a way for you to stay more connected with NACAT throughout the year. Have you enjoyed it so far? I owe a huge thank you to professional journalist
and NACAT member Bob Chabot for spearheading this e-News project and making everything come together so smoothly. Nice job Bob! If you’re not receiving the e-News, check with the NACAT office and they will look into it. The e-News is a members-only benefit, so if your membership has lapsed, now is a great time to renew!

Don’t forget to register for the 2018 NACAT Conference, hosted this year by Penn College in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.This will be NACAT’s third visit to Penn, but my first visit – I joined NACAT the year after we made our last visit to PA. We have a great conference team, and are working on building you the best training experience we can deliver – in NACAT’s own family-friendly style. Visit the conference website ( to learn more information and to register.

I hope to see you in just a few months in Williamsport!
