2008 "Best Practices" for Contract Sweepers

by Ranger Kidwell-Ross

Uri Ben-Yashar at NPE 2008

Uri Ben-Yashar, owner of East Coast Lot And Pavement Maintenance, was the moderator of the NPE 2008 seminar entitled "Best Practices" for Contract Sweepers.

The format of the seminar was that attendees split off into six different groups, depending upon their primary interest or ability to contribute to a one of the modules. During the brainstorming sessions that followed, each group came up with what they thought were the primary challenges in that area, as well as discussed solutions.

Following are the audio presentations that were made by facilitators of the seminar at the conclusion of the break-out group discussions. Just click on the audio's 'play arrow' to start it. These are all hosted online, so no files will download to your computer.
