Glen Ellyn, IL — The Bearing Specialists Association (BSA) has announced that its 2008 Fall Meeting will be Sept. 22-23 at the Hilton Suites Chicago Magnificent Mile in Chicago, IL. This reflects a change from the previously announced dates of Sept. 29-30. The location remains the same.

In addition to the regular schedule of BSA committee meetings, BSA’s Information Technology and Supply Chain Committee (formerly the Information Technology and Logistics Committee) will host a presentation from a representative of Google on the company’s suite of applications. Then there will be a ‘User Experience’ presentation from Applied Industrial Technologies regarding that company’s experience with the Google products.

Traditionally the BSA Fall and Winter Meetings offer the association’s committees the opportunity to pursue their agendas without the distractions of broader programming at the BSA Annual Convention.

Participants say the compact schedule in a smaller, more intimate format than the association’s Annual Convention offers an outstanding opportunity to network with industry peers in a casual, more intimate setting and, they add, to help influence the direction the industry takes over the coming years.
