The Industrial Heating Equipment Association (IHEA) will hold its 91st annual meeting on Royal Caribbean’s Brilliance of the Seas March 12-16, 2020, departing from Tampa, Fla. This four-day event will deliver educational programming, committee work and time for social interaction.

The program will include presentations from Chief Master Sergeant (retired) Bob Vazquez, Chris Kuehl and Omar Nashashibi. Vazquez is a course director at the United States Air Force Academy’s Center for Character Development and an adjunct professor at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs. He will discuss the Power of SUPERvision and offer a unique perspective on leadership.

Attendees will also hear from IHEA’s economist, Chris Kuehl, who will provide an economic update. With eyes and ears on Washington, Nashashibi, a lobbyist, will present an insider’s perspective as the 2020 presidential election unfolds. As a bonus for all attendees, speakers will be available throughout the cruise to continue discussions and answer questions in a more relaxed setting.

IHEA committees will convene to continue work on issues of importance to the membership and the industry at large. To round out the meeting agenda, attendees will enjoy a variety of social activities, including the annual President’s Reception, a mini-golf tournament and a farewell dinner.
