Three weeks until Christmas
    And Santa was busy
The toy shop was hopping
    The elves in a tizzy
“I need a short break”
    Santa said with a sigh
Then he gathered the reindeer
    And bade them to fly
He plotted a course
    To the tip of the bay
“We’ll visit those folks
    At the E P E A”
“We’ll talk and we’ll laugh
    We’ll have a good time
Then into my sleigh
    I’m afraid I must climb”
“There’s more work to be done
    Before the big day
But I always enjoy
    The E P E A!”
Don’t be a Grinch!  Plan to attend the Holiday Party on Saturday, December 3, 2016 at the Virginia Beach Resort Hotel.  All you have to do is go to the website and you will be able to register and pay online.  Please join in the festivities.  Oh, by the way, there is also an EPEA Board Meeting at 2 pm that same day if you would like to see first-hand how your organization works.

What Do You Want?

MAC 2017 is now in the planning stages and that means it is time for you to speak up.  What kind of training would you like?  What type of seminars would be useful for your business?  Do you need any prep classes or certification testing?  Who would you like to see at the Trade Show?  Do you have any specific needs or requests?  Do you have any suggestions?

What Are You Thankful For?

What does Thanksgiving mean to you? It is that time of year (amazing how quick the years go by...) to gather around and give thanks for everything we have, and to help those that are not so fortunate.

Here at the EPEA, we are also thankful. 
We are thankful for our conference sponsors, who enable us to put on a great MAC year after year.
We are thankful for our class trainers, who provide some of the industry's best classes and help make our conferences fun and educational.
We are thankful for the technical support teams who provide service and training material for our members, an excellent resource for many types of products.
But most of all, we are thankful for our members, the heart of our organization and without whom we would have no purpose.
We thank each and every one of you for all of your support this past year, and we look forward to a great 2017.

Check Us Out!


So you know how to get to our website (right?) but are you getting the most out of it? Here are a few helpful tips to get you going...

1) Click the EPEA Forum tab to access our forum. From here you will have access to our Tech-to-Tech support section, where you can ask any question pertaining any service issue you are having, and a special Sound Off section where you can voice your ideas and opinions on the industry, our conference or whatever else you want! If you are on any EPEA committee, this forum will also allow special sections for you to communicate with everyone else on your committee.

2) You can click on the Training tab to access service manuals, bulletins, and training from manufacturers and some of our in-house developed training. This is updated as new material is provided to us. This section will not be visible unless you are signed in to the website as it is for EPEA members only.

3) The Membership tab allows you to register to become a member of the EPEA, as well as pay for membership dues.

4) The Mid Atlantic Conference tab will provide the latest information on the upcoming Mid Atlantic Conference, the premier training conference on the East Coast for the television and appliance service industry.

So go ahead, explore the site. Make sure to register for the EPEA Forum and Training. Keep in mind though, that access to our training and the forums are limited to EPEA members only. So, if you are not a member, you may want to go to that Membership tab first!
