Yes, it’s been awhile since we’ve posted here but we’re still kickin’! In fact, lots has been happening here. Laurie Dudasek, who used to post here, has left the company to seek new opportunities. We wish you the best of luck, Laurie! My name’s Briana Ross and I recently took over as the Marketing Director and the first thing I’ve learned is that I have big shoes to fill, but I’m excited to be here. Every day I’m finding out what a great company this is.
Yesterday we attended the 2015 New Mexico Apartment Conference and Trade Show. Wow! It was definitely worth the last minute decision to go. First, the turnout was amazing. One of my favorite parts was seeing the look on everyone’s faces when they learned that the lighting solutions we provide would save them money on their electric bills, qualify them for a PNM rebate, save them countless hours on maintenance, and reduce tenant complaints while increasing their safety. It really is a win-win for everyone.
However, the definite highlight of the conference was the scholarship program which gave away $500 scholarships to employees or family members of employees in the apartment industry. Many vendors at the trade show made contributions and the outpouring of generosity was immense—there were almost fifty New Mexican’s who received scholarships by the end of the day. We contributed in part by donating a $500 scholarship ourselves and we wish all of the scholarship recipients success in their futures!
It was a long day, but so worth it. If you’d like to know more about how energy efficient lighting can save you money, maintenance costs, and provide better lighting for your apartment complex—or any business you may have—give us a call. We’d love to talk to you.
