URS 15th Annual Telethon
The United Rehabilitation Services (URS) held their fifteenth annual telethon at WDTN TV Channel 2 studios on Sunday, December 4, 2016. The presenting sponsor this year was the Western Ohio Chapter of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 82. Several volunteers were on hand to take calls from donors.

This is one of the biggest fundraisers for the URS and raised over $116,000! Executive Director Dennis Grant was elated with the number of volunteers that participated in the telethon. This year, the URS established a payment plan for donors, thus ensuring monthly donations.

IBEW Local 82 Business Manager Greg Gust indicated that IBEW Local 82 has contributed over $60,000 to the URS. "I recommend that everyone take the opportunity to visit the URS facility. It is humbling to see the work they do and it will win over your heart."

APPS for the electrical industry
Head down, palm up. That’s how we’re choosing to engage with information technology nowadays, our eyes fixed — transfixed some would say — on smartphones and other mobile digital devices not just for fun and diversion, but for productive reasons, too.

Electrical professionals are joining the wireless mobile fray, e-mailing, texting, navigating the web, and using the ubiquitous apps that deliver quick answers, manage and customize information consumption, and hasten communication. Now, with information at their fingertips, electrical pros at all levels are armed with even more powerful on-demand IT capabilities. Tasks that used to demand laborious hand calculations or time-consuming diversions to consult hefty code books — and the conveyance of information via face-to-face meetings, phone conversations, and e-mails that are becoming the equivalent of smoke signals as expeditious means of communication — are being sped up and simplified.
