Chairman's Note

A note from Tony Gemignani...

Cross Roads of Talent and Technology
Tony Gemignani

In my conversations with fellow PMPA members over the past year, I have heard a common theme:  the need for highly-skilled individuals to work with the rapidly advancing technology available in our industry.

The 2019 Technical Program Committee has developed a program focused on increasing the knowledge of the professionals in our own precision machining shops.  There will be 30 sessions to choose from within Technical, Quality and Leadership Development programming tracks.  You will hear from professional speakers in their areas of expertise.  You will hear from our technical members regarding advancements in our industry.  You will hear from PMPA members explaining best practices from their shops.  There will be numerous networking opportunities along the way.  We are confident each attendee will bring home several “A-Ha” moments.

Human talent is each company’s greatest asset.  Sending multiple employees to this year’s National Technical Conference is an investment in their future—in your company’s future.

Immediately following this year’s conference is our biennial Precision Machining Technical Show which will complement what was learned at the conference.    Please join us in Cleveland for an experience we are confident will enhance the knowledge base of all who attend.
