Hello all -

I am contacting you to let you know about a conference that will take place this summer at Duke University, for managers/instructors at student shops from across the country. It's being sponsored by our Pratt School of Engineering.

If your college or university has a student shop where students (especially engineering students) learn to use machine tools (lathes, mills, etc) as part of their curriculum, I hope that you will forward this email to the manager, director, or primary instructor at that shop. (Note that the managers/directors/instructors at these shops are the hoped-for attendees at this inaugural conference - it is NOT intended for safety professionals-.but I'm emailing you because I hope you can spread the word.)

For more information about the conference, please see

Also, please note that the Wednesday morning presentation by Rob Klein and John Campbell will address lessons learned and culture change following the tragic death of a Yale student in a machine shop incident in 2011.  Shop managers may also want to join this Linked In group - more information about the conference will be posted here as well.
