Attendance at the Annual Meeting not only allows our members to come together to learn how management techniques, succession planning and current economic climate can benefit their organization, it is also about the networking and the opportunity to meet new members who share the same challenges as you.

The Annual Awards Banquet that culminates the Annual Meeting weekend is also a time to recognize and acknowledge those stand-out members who have gone above and beyond the duties of being a PMPA member.

Attendees were treated to three Gold Micrometer and two Technical Member Distinguished Service Award presentation in Tucson.

Gold Micrometer requirements state that the recipient is someone who has actively served the Association and has been in the Precision Machined Parts Industry 40 years.
