Dear Fellow PMA Members:

Mikki and I look forward to seeing you at the PMA 2011 Leadership Conference & Annual Meeting of Members, November 12-13 at The Palmer House Hilton in Chicago, IL.  The Leadership Conference & Annual Meeting is the ideal place to network with your peers and learn important industry information by attending informative general assembly sessions and roundtables.

Held in conjunction with FABTECH, the PMA Leadership Conference and Annual Meeting is scheduled to make the best of your time away from the office by allowing you to attend two industry events in one trip.  Attend the Leadership Conference and Annual Meeting on November 12 & 13, and take the shuttle to McCormick place for the FABTECH show opening on November 14.  The combination of the informative business sessions and social networking opportunities offered at the Leadership Conference & Annual Meeting, and FABTECH tradeshow featuring the newest technologies shaping the metalforming industry makes this an event you can’t afford to miss.

In keeping with my theme “PMA: Your Essential Partner”, we will feature high-profile speakers, including Jeb Bush, Florida’s 43rd Governor who will address “Strategies for Economic Growth”; and Dana Perino, Fox News political commentator and former White House Press Secretary, who will provide a political analysis on the 2012 elections.  The event will also feature William A. Strauss of the Chicago Federal Reserve, Sam Chun from the Olin School of Business and PMA’s top-rated executive roundtables on a wide range of topics. 

Exciting social events also are planned to encourage and promote your networking experience including the Annual Gala Banquet where the new 2012 PMA officers will be announced.  The PMA Awards of Excellence Reception will honor the leaders and innovators of the metalforming industry. 

Please take a few moments to register now.  We look forward to seeing you in Chicago, IL!
