The Association of Equipment Management Professionals has opened registrations for its annual Equipment Shift conference. Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, AEMP has opted to hold the conference virtually for 2020.

The conference will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the month of October, beginning Oct. 1st. All sessions will begin at 1 p.m. Eastern.

Equipment Shift will offer three tracks:

Elevate yourself — Strategies, pandemic leadership and emotional intelligence.

Elevate your team — Mentorship, team accountability and diversity and inclusion.

Elevate the industry — Equipment management innovation, new ways of doing things and safety.

Each session will be recorded and available on demand to conference registrants 24 hours after each session.

Registration costs start with an early bird member rate (until Sept. 16) of $350, followed by a regular member rate of $375. The non-member rate is $500. Group discounts are offered.

By attending the conference, registrants can earn 12 credits toward the Certified Equipment Manager or the Certified Equipment Support Professional programs.
