The Cabinet Makers Association (CMA) announces that their upcoming regional event, which will be held May 18-19, 2016 in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, is filling up fast.
The CMA has been hosting high-value events such as this since 1998 as a means of connecting similar-sized shops around North America with the purpose of sharing best practices and business acumen, while learning how other businesses do what they do. The regional events typically involve plant tours, educational seminars, networking, and simply a chance to talk shop and share issues, solutions and even projects. Although they are dubbed “regional”, these events typically draw attendees from across the country as well as Canada.
The May regional event will begin in Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN on Wednesday, May 18. The day’s agenda includes a tour of Anderson Corporation's window plant, a visit to the 3M Innovation Center and CAM Center, as well as a plant tour of Navy Island. The day will conclude with a wrap up discussion over dinner at the hotel followed by a brief educational presentation. On Thursday, May 19, the group will travel to WalzCraft Industries in Lacrosse, WI for educational presentations and a plant tour. Finally, the group will head north to Blaine, MN to tour Northland Woodworks and enjoy a BBQ dinner.
The CMA offers this event to members for a bargain price of $50, while non-members are only $75 per person. For more information and to register, visit www.cabinetmakers.org/events.html
For out-of-town guests considering attending the event, the CMA has secured a block of rooms at the Embassy Suites Bloomington. The deadline to secure a hotel room at the discounted rate of $149/night is May 3, 2016.
