First State Chapter – PAMA Update
The Chapter would like to thank all the attendees and sponsors for making the First State Chapter – PAMA Maintenance Symposium so successful on a tough travel weekend. The Chapter regrets that many attendees from the north were not able to make our event. There were 360 registered for the event Saturday morning, due to the snow north of the Newark Delaware location, 275 still attended.
