Spring is the season of renewal. A fresh start. Learning, growing and experiencing new things. This year, we will be ushering in Spring by supporting two informational and educational expos.
The first event is the Electrical Board of Missouri and Illinois (EBMI) Electrical Expo at the St. Charles Convention Center in St. Charles, MO. This event will take place on March 21-22.

Following the EBMI Expo, we will be sponsoring the Electric League of Missouri & Kansas Expo at the Overland Park Convention Center in Overland Park, KS, on April 11-12.
