Glen Ellyn, IL—The Bearing Specialists Association (BSA) 2012 Fall Meeting in Chicago, scheduled for Sept. 24-25 at the Hilton Suites Chicago/Magnificent Mile, will be co-located with the American Bearing Manufacturers Association (ABMA) Fall Meeting.

Each association will be pursuing its own business agenda, but there will be a joint reception and dinner to facilitate industry networking. In addition, industry leaders who normally attend both events save time and resources by traveling once.

BSA’s Information Technology and Supply Chain committee meeting on Sept. 24 will feature a presentation by Susan Streich, national sales manager of IDEA e-solutions on its data synchronization solutions for business.

Traditionally, the Fall Meeting provides the opportunity to network with industry peers, experience the work of the committees with no obligation to join the committee, see how participation can influence the direction of the industry, and learn how participation on a committee can benefit individuals personally and improve their company’s position in the marketplace.

Expanded networking opportunities this year include a joint BSA/ABMA reception and dinner, and invitations to attend ABMA’s Anti-Counterfeiting committee meeting on Sunday, Education committee meeting on Monday, and a breakfast and general session on Tuesday morning.
