Earlier this month, a group of our team members attended the BICSI Winter Conference in Orlando, Florida. This year, we not only had the privilege of sharing our just-launched SEAL enclosures with conference-goers, we also had the opportunity to attend sessions and interact with others in our field, learning and observing new trends and ideas that are at the cutting edge of the industry.

Power is gained by sharing knowledge; BICSI continues to be a wonderful facilitator of this concept. Great Lakes Case & Cabinet has presented several times at national BICSI conferences; however, my colleague, Brian Franz, and I had the opportunity to speak on behalf of GLCC for the first time at the BICSI 2017 fall conference just one week ago.
