The Portable Sanitation Association International Nuts & Bolts Convention, scheduled for March 24-28 at the Omni William Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh, is an educational affair that includes meetings, workshops, roundtable discussions, and special events.

This year, the convention includes a site visit to our facilities at Mr. John. Our duty as hosts is to take between 80 and 100 guests on a tour of our facilities and operation. This event will be a great opportunity for our company to present ourselves and reinforce our position as an industry leader.

As a company, we have devoted a lot of time to creating a positive image not only in the Pittsburgh market, but also within the PSAI. Jeff Wolfarth, our general manager, is currently the president of the PSAI. Michael McCarthy is also a past president of the PSAI, and others are currently involved in various committees. Additionally, Mr. John is one of only a handful of companies with a PSAI employee certification training program in place.

The Nuts & Bolts will be a great experience for many of us to meet and interact with colleagues within the portable toilet industry. Take this opportunity to exchange ideas, learn from others, and project yourself and Mr. John in the professional image we have worked hard to create.
