- Discuss plumbing and electrical problems and solutions with your peers.
- Join two free online discussion forums, EC&M Talk and Plumbing Talk.
- Built upon the editorial power of EC&M and Contractor magazines.
ATTENTION, CONTRACTORS! ARE YOU READY TO 'TALK PLUMBING'? HOW ABOUT ELECTRICAL?
If so, you're welcome to join in the discussion, and reap the benefits that come from sharing ideas, project challenges and solutions, and your many success stories with your plumbing and electrical contracting peers.
These two new and free-to-use discussion forums — give electricians and plumbers a rock-solid platform for help with project questions, equipment specs, training, electrical codes, and much more! There's even a section for "rookies and trainees," who want access to the best information and peer support possible as they begin their careers.
Both forums were launched through the combined efforts of Penton's online team: Community Leader Kate Kelly, who had previously served with distinction as managing editor of ContractingBusiness.com magazine; Content Products Director Lauren Watters; marketing experts Kim Davidson and Angie Gates; and the editorial staffs of both EC&M and Contractor magazines.
Kelly has recruited well-known industry leaders to seed the forums with compelling content. Also, under Kelly's direction, the sites pro-actively encourage users to take part in forum discussions about everything from new products to effective business practices. The forums are prominently promoted in email newsletters, and throughout the site - via widgets that display the latest topics and contributions, as well as with in-article links.
