Message from the EAS President

Crowne Plaza Princeton Conference Center

The year 2017 begins a new journey for EAS with our move to the Crowne Plaza Princeton – Conference Center in Plainsboro, NJ.  We are very grateful for the past 25 years in Somerset, have many fond memories of the times we spent, and truly are appreciative of the consistency it afforded.   However, over the past few years we have consistently heard feedback from our exhibitors and conferees that the facility no longer met the needs for EAS and that there was a desire

A tribute to Herk Felder (1951-2016)

The EAS family has lost one of their own: Hercules Felder passed away this month, too soon; he was 64. We’ve all been stunned by this news. Herk was a pillar of the organization, a pioneer and, true to his first name, a force of nature. Herk had been with EAS for 35 years, serving as EAS’ first African-American president in 1994 and continued to actively support EAS even after retiring from a successful career in NJ and moving to
