Thanks to everyone who attended our annual Best Of party at Lasalle Power Co. on Thursday, March 3. We had a significant turnout and were pleased to finally unveil the winners of our esteemed Best Of accolades, as well as our new Hall of Fame inductees.
Also on March 3, I welcomed the new members of my Editorial Advisory Board. Comprised of 15 industry leaders, the board is my greatest asset in providing feedback on magazine content and alerting me to industry news we should be covering.
