PMPA Update Conference Heads South to Atlanta

Tuesday December 17, 2019

The PMPA Update Committee is pleased to announce the 2020 Update Conference, to be held March 5-7, at the InterContinental Buckhead hotel in Buckhead, Georgia (just north of downtown Atlanta).  They chose the city and hotel because of its affordability and accessibility and then put together an awesome program with a theme that targets building Leadership within your organization from the top to the bottom!

The two-day (Friday/Saturday) program kicks off with highly-acclaimed Lean guru Paul Akers, author of 2-Second Lean, who will share his techniques on how fun and simple Lean really is!  The group then disperses into a highly interactive team building session using LEGO building blocks to demonstrate critical thinking skills.  Breakout sessions will include an HR topic on drug policies with Melanie Webber of FisherPhillips LLC; best practices for scheduling presented by PMPA’s IT-Future of Manufacturing Committee; and building a workforce of leaders with Brad Wolff of PeopleMax.

We are honored to have Vice Admiral Ron Boxall of the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff join us to share his naval stories and to answer “What Makes a Great Leader?”  PMPA’s most trusted economist, Brian Beaulieu will be on hand to provide a peek into 2020’s economic forecast and how the political arena may affect it all.  And, wrapping it up…motivational speaker David Moore challenges us to “Wake Up and Win!”

Update Committee Chair JoAnn Wilson-VlachEfficient Machine Products Corp. invites and encourages all members to come and re-acquaint yourselves with PMPA friends and industry peers at the 2020 Update Conference. “I’m super excited for this year’s conference – Let’s build great leadership teams together!”

Update Conference registration is now open, and the InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta hotel is ready to take your reservations!    Be sure to visit the Update Conference website for all meeting details!
