EESF Attends the Elevator U Conference at Penn State

July 15, 2011 – The Elevator Escalator Safety Foundation (EESF) was represented at the Elevator U Conference at Penn State in State College, Pennsylvania on June 7 – 9, 2011.  EESF was offered a complimentary registration and exhibit booth space for the conference.

 

EESF and Elevator U not only care about maintaining the highest standards of university facilities management, but also about safety education available to college students.  These organizations wish to prevent any injury or death because of lack of elevator knowledge.

 

During the Elevator U Board Meeting, staff reported that the newly released Rise Up Safe Ride program had 3,674 Visitors to the webpage, 40 Elevator Poster downloads and 37 Inside Elevator Poster downloads.   A request was presented to the board to form a committee for the marketing of the program to universities in the U.S.

 

Elevator U supported the Foundation by allowing them to host a silent auction on June 8, 2011, during Elevator U’s opening night reception.

 

Elevator U requested each exhibitor bring at least one silent auction item to be displayed in the exhibitor’s booth.  Conference attendees visited each booth to view and bid on the items available.  This gave the exhibitors a unique opportunity to interact with conference attendees and display their products.

 

At the conclusion of the event, each exhibitor brought forward their item and the winning bid was announced.  The Elevator U silent auction raised $3,915 for EESF which will be used to help the Foundation achieve its mission.

 

In addition to the silent auction, Glenn Duncan of Parts Specialists, Inc. volunteered to conduct a 50/50 raffle with proceeds to go to the EESF.  Duncan sold tickets for two days, collecting $1,040 from attendees and exhibitors alike.  The winning ticket belonged to Jeff Kneuer.

 

EESF would like to thank the exhibitors for their generous donations of items for the silent auction; everyone who bid on items; those who purchased a raffle ticket and the Board of Elevator U for allowing the event to take place.

 

The Mission of the Elevator Escalator Safety Foundation is to educate the public on the safe and proper use of elevators, escalators and moving walks through informational programs.
