Hydraulic Institute Opens Registration for 2013 Fall Meeting

The Hydraulic Institute (HI) 2013 fall meeting will take place October 23–25 at the Grand Historic Venue & Embassy Suites in Baltimore. Registration is now open to HI members, associate members, standards partners and utilities and energy efficiency NGOs who are sponsors of Pump Systems Matter. Eligible prospective members can attend with advance approval.

This year’s meeting will focus on pump systems optimization, pump efficiency rule-making on commercial and industrial pumps, pump test lab certification and pump labeling, and standards development.

More than 30 HI technical committees will meet to review and advance specific areas of knowledge and work that ultimately will result in the development of new or updated ANSI/HI pump standards. Attendees with particular topic interest or subject matter expertise will have the opportunity to participate in these technical meetings. Young engineers are particularly encouraged to attend.

HI is offering a 50 percent discount on registration to individuals at member companies who are under the age of 35 and have served less than 10 years in the pump industry. HI is also offering a group discount, as well as an early bird discount to individuals who register on or before Sept. 6.

Registration can be completed at www.Pumps.org/13Fall.
