The new title, the National Association of Oil & Energy Service Professionals, honors the association’s past while looking toward the future of the industry.



The National Association of Oilheating Service Managers has changed its name to the National Association of Oil & Energy Service Professionals (OESP). Members approved the official name change on May 24, 2011 at their 58th Annual Convention in Hershey, Pa. Executive Director Judy Garber said the new title honors the association’s past while looking toward the future of the industry.

“It builds on NAOHSM’s more than half century of accomplishment,” she noted. “OESP remains dedicated to the advancement of all energy service professionals through education and support.”

NAOHSM was founded in 1954 with Hugh McKee as its president. Since then, there have been many changes to the world, as well as to the heating industry.

“Our members wear many hats,” Garber explained. “The title ‘service manager’ has either gone away or has evolved into the position of general manager, lead technician, district manager or even sales manager. Our members do so much more that just service oil-heat accounts.”

To commemorate this important change, OESP invites energy service professionals to take advantage of a free, six-month trial membership to network within chapters and attend training programs to advance their skills. Contact the national office at 888/552-0900 or visit www.thinkoesp.org for further information.

Garber noted the idea of a new name reflecting the membership as it is today has been discussed for about five years.

“As a matter of fact, last year we thought we had a new name and then, after consideration, many realized the proposed name was missing our core roots - oil heat,” she said. “The new name, the National Association of Oil & Energy Service Professionals, reflects our history, as well as our present and future.”
