Registration Open for 2011 Fall Leadership Conference and Annual Meeting

October 1, 2011

Register now for the Precision Metalforming Association’s (PMA) 2011 Fall Leadership Conference and Annual Meeting of Members, November 12-13, at the Palmer House Hilton Hotel in Chicago, IL. You won’t want to miss this exciting event, which features outstanding assembly sessions, interactive executive roundtables and social events to encourage networking.

Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush will kick off the program with a presentation on “Strategies for Economic Growth.” He will discuss how future economic growth requires confronting tough challenges, such as reforming social security; promoting consumer-driven health care; creating stable, cost-effective regulatory rules; and lowering tax rates, while eliminating loopholes. Job-creating benefits of international trade must be recognized. And the U.S. education system must be transformed, so opportunities for economic growth are matched by skills of the next generation.

Former White House Press Secretary Dana Perino, a frequent Fox News contributor, will follow Governor Bush and provide a political analysis on the 2012 elections. With the presidential campaigns kicking into high gear, she will offer insight into the candidates and examine their strategies. She also will analyze the campaigns for control of the House and Senate and the current political climate in Washington, including budget and debt negotiations.

Additional assembly session speakers include Jeoff Burris, Advanced Purchasing Dynamics, who will give a presentation on how to improve results and relationships through better negotiations, and William Strauss, Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, who will provide an economic outlook for 2012.

Interactive roundtables are another highlight of this meeting. Featured topics include moving from competitive to collaborative negotiations, a steel and scrap market outlook, leveraging your power in D.C., tax reform, human resource issues, NLRB developments, and OSHA’s focus on lockout, I2P2 and barrier guarding.

The meeting also features the 2011 Awards of Excellence in Metalforming reception and the annual banquet honoring PMA’s 2012 officers. Register to attend the Fall Leadership Conference & Annual Meeting by October 17 and receive $50 off your registration fee!
