Join the PMA Tennessee District at Stamtec for our first-ever "Taste of PMA" metalforming industry speaker series on January 27.

We have brought together six powerful PMA presenters under the roof of Stamtec's 72,000-sq.-ft. facility, located in Manchester, TN. This is an opportunity to meet and hear from some of PMA's highest-rated speakers and volunteer leaders, close to home. They will get your new year started on the right foot by blending presentations on core stamping topics, PMA benefits, and 2022 market and supply trends. 

Between presentations, we will have a BBQ lunch, catered by Praters BBQ, along with a plant tour of our host, Stamtec. This is a can’t-miss event for all metalforming professionals!
