Recently, OPEI Board Chairman and Ariens Co. President and CEO Dan Ariens and OPEI President Kris Kiser perfomed final inspections at OPEI’s new headquarters in Old Town Alexandria, Va. 
Due to the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute’s continued growth and high rates of member engagement, the Board of Directors purchased a new headquarters building to accommodate members, staff, and a new state-of-the-art conference center. The new building opens in February. 
"As an international trade group with members in Europe, Japan, China and across the United States, we have global meetings, and we wanted to be able to host them in person and virtually. Now, we'll be better suited to host ISO, IEC and other international gatherings," said Kiser.
