Bill brought this up on Fri nite's chat.

Do you subscribe to and read any trade magazines?
If so, which ones?
(I get EC&M, NEC Digest, IAEI News, and just signed up for EC)

EC&M, EC, NEC digest.

I have learned alot of information from the magazines.
I even have my first EC&M issue DECEMBER 1995
and if i need to refresh on a certain subject i go back to the older issues and read. For the last 3-4 years i have slacked off and haven't kept the magazines.

Russ, you can find the necdigest at www.nfpa.com under periodicals on their home page.
I get EC&M and NFPA Journal. Which leads me to wonder how many others are NFPA members?

It costs money.

Hot line tech support from NFPA staff.
Free online access to codes and standards.
NFPA Journal Mag.
NFPA Directory.
10% discount on on NFPA products (like the 05 NEC.)
Voting privileges.
Training and professional development.
