BICSI realigns conference schedule
BICSI places greater emphasis on global and local events.
Consistent with goals in the BICSI Board Strategic Plan, BICSI , the association supporting the information transport systems (ITS) industry with information, education, and knowledge assessment, has decided to hold two major U.S. Conferences per year, instead of three.
BICSI has decided not to proceed with future BICSI U.S. Spring Conferences & Exhibitions, including the 2010 BICSI Spring Conference & Exhibition previously scheduled for April 11-14, 2010, in Albuquerque, N.M., allowing greater emphasis on the BICSI Fall (Sept. 20-24, 2009, Las Vegas) and Winter Conferences & Exhibitions (Jan. 17-21, 2010, Orlando, Fla.).
In addition to the conferences in the United States, BICSI holds many conferences with educational and networking opportunities all around the world. The most recent event was the 8th Annual Middle East Conference and Exhibition, held May 3-5 in Dubai.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
