NEF’s year is rapidly coming to a close, and we have worked diligently to enhance the manner in which we serve you, our customers. Hopefully, you have already seen a difference, but if you haven’t, we urge you to visit our website today and check out what’s new.
As you may be aware, the offering of our publications in a truly digital format has long been discussed and is finally a reality. No more waiting for your hardcover textbook to come by snail mail – enjoy the ease of instantaneous downloads! We hope that you have already taken advantage of the new digital platform we rolled out on July 15th, but in case you haven’t, please visit our website for a complete listing of available titles.
Implementation of our new online testing protocol will also be introduced during Annual Conference in Atlanta. Those taking the Construction Document Technician (CDT) exam will be doing so utilizing our new in-house testing system. Not only is this system user friendly, but it will also provide immediate participant results. Imagine knowing that you have passed the exam and being able to print your own certificate of completion right away. Once Beta testing is complete, we will roll out our full line of testing using NEF’s new system.
Finally, be sure to start saving up your money! NEF’s Arm’s Length Extravaganza will be back in Atlanta! We have already received some great raffle prizes like another television, Kindles, Echo Dots, and of course, gift cards galore, but it is never too late to donate to the cause. If you know of or already have something you want to donate to NEF, please let Patti know as soon as possible. We are finalizing signage and want to make sure we get our generous donors and sponsors listed. There is no need to send it into the NEF Office – just let us know you are bringing it with you to Annual Conference, and we will make sure your Region gets credit for it.
As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to any of our Board Members or our Administrator, Patti Susko, for assistance.
