NAEDA would like to congratulate the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute, (OPEI to a number of us) on their 60th anniversary. According to Kris Kiser, President and CEO, “After 60 years, OPEI is stronger than ever, fiscally sound and ready to tackle the foreseen – and unforeseen – challenges ahead. We will do this through our adaptability, member participation and making our organization a relevant and trusted partner.”
NAEDA’s Industry Relations Task Force met with the OPEI board of directors at their annual meeting on June 20, 2012 in Colorado as part of their anniversary celebration. A number of topics were discussed with the board and task force, with an agreement to meet again and continue to work together on issues important to OPE dealers, manufacturers and customers.
