PMPA Members,

As Chair of the Update Committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to the 2020 Update Conference, to be held March 5-7, 2020 at the InterContinental Buckhead hotel, Buckhead (Atlanta), Georgia. We are really excited about this year’s conference – the program and speakers all come together to realize a theme based on building strong leadership within your organization.

Kicking off the conference will be the highly-acclaimed Lean guru, Paul Akers – author of 2-Second Lean, who explains his techniques and demonstrates how simple and fun Lean really is. Brad Wolff with PeopleMax provides foundational principles needed to create a company culture where up and coming leaders can grow and thrive. We are also honored to have Vice Admiral Ronald Boxall of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff who will share his naval experiences and answer the question “What Makes a Great Leader?”

Rounding out the rest of the program – a fun, interactive teambuilding session with LEGO® Serious Play® facilitator Ben Leblois will have attendees using LEGO® building blocks to demonstrate critical thinking skills; labor lawyer Melanie Webber gives us an update on drug policies in the workplace and provides us with no-nonsense tips on interviewing for results. Our favorite economist – Brian Beaulieu of ITR Economics – also joins us with a peek into 2020’s economic forecast. And, wrapping it all up will be David Moore, sending us home with a motivational message to Wake Up and Win!

This is the first PMPA conference to be held in Atlanta. It’s affordable – it’s easy to get to – and, the weather…well, it should be just fine in early March! Traveling from the airport to the hotel can be done via the Atlanta metro train: MARTA. A metro station is a half a block from the hotel. The city of Buckhead is a vibrant area, with restaurants, entertainment and retail all within walking distance of the hotel.

If you’ve never attended an Update Conference – this is the one to get your feet wet. If you’ve not been to one in a while – this is the one to get re-acquainted!

Plan on joining us for a great conference in a great city – 2020 Update Conference, Atlanta!
