Forming Our Future

A Letter From Our Chairman

Dear Fellow PMA Members:

Kathy and I look forward to seeing you at Forming Our Future: Leadership Conference & PMA Annual Meeting, March 7-10, 2018, at the Loews Ventana Canyon Resort in picturesque Tucson, Arizona.

We have a terrific program planned, featuring presentations from industry experts and roundtable discussions on combatting the skills gap; increasing engagement, execution and earnings; how trade policy could affect global supply chains; and much more. Additionally, we’ll open the meeting with an inspiring keynote speech on leadership, presented by Alden Mills, former Navy SEAL Platoon Commander, CEO of Perfect Fitness and author. Our closing presentation, delivered by actor and entrepreneur John Ratzenberger, will address educating, motivating and empowering Americans to expand skills and entrepreneurship.

As always, exciting social events are planned to enhance your networking experience including the annual golf outing, a western-themed dinner and industry gala. In addition, we will celebrate our volunteer leaders and introduce the new 2018 PMA officers.

Please make plans to bring your key leaders to Forming Our Future. We look forward to seeing you in Tucson!


Dave Arndt
PMA 2017 Chairman of the Board
