KEYNOTE SPEAKER...Presented by Veolia Water NA
Doc Palmer, PE, MBA, CMRP
Author of McGraw-Hill’s Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Handbook

“Maintenance Planning and Scheduling: Increase Your Workforce without Hiring”

Doc Palmer has over three decades of industrial experience as a practitioner primarily within the maintenance department of the Jacksonville Electric Authority, a major United States electric utility.  From 1990 through 1994, Palmer was responsible for overhauling the existing maintenance planning organization. The resulting success played a role in expanding planning to all crafts and stations owned and operated by the utility.  Publisher McGraw-Hill subsequently sought out Palmer to author the Maintenance Planning and Scheduling Handbook published in 1999 and now in its third edition (2013). Palmer also directed the purchase and implementation of a CMMS and administered the preventive maintenance program. Additionally, he has delivered numerous well-received maintenance articles and presentations for industry.  Currently Palmer provides guidance, mentoring, and training for companies internationally for maintenance planning success.

* Following the format used last year, the CAB will be open to all customers for all Oracle Utilities products.  The CAB meeting will be used to present Product Roadmaps and to solicit feedback from customers.  Please note that this FullCircle announcement is not an invitation to the CAB.  Invitation and registration information for the CAB is forthcoming under separate cover from your Oracle project manager. Please feel free to contact Paul.Little@Oracle.com directly re: the CAB. The registration deadline for the CAB is Feb. 21, 2013.  To register, contact Vikki Brown at vikki.brown@oracle.com. There is no cost to attend the CAB; registration will be handled separately (travel and other costs are the responsibility of each attendee). However, there is a low registration fee to attend the self-funded FullCircle event that relies on registration fees and industry partner sponsorships each year.
