The Benefits of ISD Membership

ISDAre you involved in the sealing industry? Does your organization make, sell, install and/or maintain mechanical and hydraulic seals, packing, gaskets, o-rings, and related fluid sealing products?

If so, joining ISD – The International Sealing Distribution Association (ISD) – would be invaluable.

With regular seminars, webinars, and the annual sealing summit, there are many opportunities to further your staff’s education or network with others in your industry.

Coming up in March (26-27th) is the Spring Technical Event. Hosted by Teadit in Houston, this is a great opportunity to get a lot of technical information directly from the experts in a jam-packed day and a half. Teadit will be providing some educational tours as well. Click here for more info.

ISD is also a sponsor of the University of Innovative Distribution, a cost-effective and efficient program for providing top-notch education and training for your personnel. Developed in conjunction with Purdue University, the UID program offers four days of classes taught by leading industry experts and covers a wide variety of industrial distribution topics, such as sales and market planning for the industrial distributor and the logistics of industrial distribution. The next session is March 8 -11, 2015. Click here for details.
