             NEBO Executive Director, Dan Yeager, has completed the Credentialing Specialist Certification through I.C.E.(Institute for Credentialing Excellence). I.C.E. is the leader in their industry for credentialing certification programs. This course takes an in-depth view of the requirements set for a certification organization, from exam development to governance. Additionally, Chairman Kurt Jahrling and Vice President Michael Strauss are participating in this course as well.  

Nancy Lambert (above) was our NEBO Fabrication chairwomen for 13 years! We can't thank her enough for her dedication and service to NEBO. 

Following the fall 2018 meeting, Vaune Bulgarelli (above) stepped down from the NEBO Board after 5 years of Service, in addition to being a fabrication examiner for many years. Vaune's commitment to NEBO went above and beyond and we thank her for that.
