February Has Been the Month for Solar Conferences!

February has been the month of conferences! Already this month, SEI has attended Solar Middle East and Solar Power Colorado conference (hosted by CO Solar Energies Industries Association), and will be attending the International Roofing Expo, and MiaGreen Expo and Conference at the end of the month. 

For the Workshop coordinator, that means checklists. I live for checklists!

  • Instructor flights and hotel rooms booked—check
  • Powerpoint slides formatted for notebooks and ordered—check
  • Flyers printed—check
  • New business cards designed and ordered—check
  • NABCEP credits assigned and Records of completion printed—check
  • Shipping crate dug out of the snow and packed—check
  • Luggage bags packed and weighed and last minute books and flyers stuffed in—check

Despite all details and coordination, conferences are hugely important events for SEI. At conferences, instructors connect with industry so as to stay informed of the newest products, educate new and returning students in the field, and of course, geek out on tech talk (white board and dry erase markers—check!). People new to the solar industry meet SEI at these conferences and alumni return to check out our latest courses and new swag.

My first day on the job at SEI was at the Solar Power International conference in Chicago. The experience was overwhelming, inspiring, exciting and exhausting all at once! I met new and returning students, tried to make sense of the tech talk, and got lost on the showroom floor learning about all the amazing products and possibilities solar has to offer. But mostly, I fell completely in love with SEI; our staff and instructors are so personal and professional. Whether you are a new student, returning alumni, or industry hot-shot, SEI cares about you and wants to support your work in the solar industry. Sign up for a workshop and stop by our booth at any of the upcoming conferences. I heart SEI button—check!
