Colorado Photonics Industry Association presents The Rise of Quantum: The Future of Information Science, Sensing, and Metrology
Date: May 23, 2018
Location: Particle Measuring Systems
Address: 5475 Airport Blvd, Boulder, CO 80301, USA
Quantum technologies exploit the fundamental properties of matter to manage and transmit information, and to measure physical phenomena in ways that greatly exceed existing capabilities. The past few years have seen a dramatic increase of global interest in quantum, as there is immediate potential impact in the fields of timekeeping, inertial sensing, EM field sensing, and information science. In this talk we will present an overview of future quantum applications, with particular emphasis on how the existing and emerging resources in atomic and optical physics can serve those markets.

NOCO Lunch and Learn: Put Your Team’s Safety on Auto Pilot
Date: June 12, 2018
Location: EWI Colorado
Address: 815 14th Street SW Bldg D, Loveland, CO 80537
Put Your Team’s Safety on Auto Pilot: Harness the Power of Habits to Protect Your People and Your Bottom Line
It’s no secret that unsafe workplaces are expensive in terms of money and in productivity. Companies around the world have committed to creating safe workplaces and have invested heavily in expensive safety training for their employees. But the #1 problem that companies face today is transforming that knowledge into consistent safety practice.
If you’ve been disappointed in the results of your safety training then you know the painful truth that knowing is not enough. Employees may know what to do. They may even want to do it. But they don’t do it. Even the best intentions don’t translate into results you can count on when safety is on the line.
This training is designed specifically for organizations who already invests substantially in their employees’ safety, but are still experiencing unsafe behavior and injuries. The most effective way to change how your employees typically think, respond, or act is to transform it from a conscious act into an unconscious act. In other words, make it a habit.
In this session, Sharon Lipinski, CEO of BLH Consulting and Habit SuperHero, will share.
1. The limitations of willpower, and why habit trumps willpower every time. Your willpower isn’t always there for you when you need it, and there are 3 reasons why.
2. The neurology of habit. Learn what neuroscience reveals about what is happening in the brain when a person engages in habitual behavior, and how you can use it to maximize the effectiveness of your existing safety training.
3. The 7 Safety Habits. These 7 habits will help you and your team save lives, reduce injuries, and increase your profitability.
Tired of saying the same thing to your employees? You will leave this session understanding why people do what they do and how to change it.
Speaker Bio: Sharon Lipinski is a habit consultant because knowledge and motivation aren’t enough, She helps you transform your good intentions into behavior you do automatically and unconsciously. She is the author of “365 Ways to Live Generously: Simple Habits for a Life That’s Good for You and for Others” which helps people get healthy in body, mind, and spirit. She is a Certified Corporate Wellness Specialist, a certified CBT for insomnia instructor, speaker, TV personality, and coach dedicated to helping people create the right habits so they can be happier, healthier, more productive, and safer at home and in their work.
Limited seating, please note that manufacturers will be given first priority.

Cyberspace Security for the Aerospace and Defense Supply Chain
Date: June 27, 2018
Location: Geotech Environmental Equipment
Address: 2650 E. 40th Ave, Denver, CO 80205
Myth: Cybersecurity is a concern for big businesses. Small businesses just aren’t on the radar.
Reality: Attackers are opportunists who look for the weakest link: All they need is one—and they have time, motivation, and financial resources. (Look at Target’s mega-hack enabled by a HVAC vendor’s cybersecurity error.)
Cybersecurity is a cost of doing business with government—but it doesn’t have to be an unreasonable financial hit. The most important message about being compliant with the NIST 800-171 guidelines is simply “get started”. Put your action plan together and work the plan! This workshop will walk you through the cybersecurity guidelines, talk you through a preliminary self-assessment, and offer templates to help you define and implement your security program. Questions addressed during the workshop include the following:
- Why should we care about cybersecurity and NIST 800-171?
- What is at risk (business and contractual impact)?
- What are current and emerging supply chain threat exposure concerns?
- Which areas did DOD identify in recent audits as the most common for noncompliance?
- Where do we start?
Let Manufacturer’s Edge help you boost your cyber (and business) resiliency and defend your competitive position within the aerospace and defense supply chain. Don’t be the weak link!
Instructor: Jennifer Kurtz, Cyber Program Director, Manufacturer’s Edge

We are looking forward to another great Expo with incredible speakers and a variety of vendors. We are planning on several keynote speakers and breakout sessions, with lots of time for visiting our vendor booths in-between.
This event is an opportunity for manufacturers and vendors of Northeastern Colorado and neighboring areas to network and share information vital to the growth and economy of the manufacturing industry.
NECOM realizes business does not adhere to county or state borders so; businesses in neighboring areas of Nebraska and Kansas are invited to participate.
ATTENTION VENDORS! What a great opportunity to display and share your information with many manufacturers throughout the region of various sizes and needs. What you have to offer is important and sometimes, manufacturers are so busy with the “daily stresses”, finding folks who can assist and help with solutions is just too timely. This is one of the purposes in hosting this event: to help connect people with people and business-to-business.
Individual – $25 Admission into event, Lunch, and Snack. Also includes 1 drink at B2B Social from 4 to 6pm.
Vendor – $100 for a 10′ x 10′ table or booth and access to speakers and presenters. Includes 2 Admission tickets.
