The 2016 NASF Leadership Conference was one of the most successful conferences in recent years. Over 100 participants from around the country met to reconnect and discuss a diverse range of topics including the latest developments in manufacturing and production, crises management and ongoing regulatory challenges. Conference highlights included two engaging keynote presentations delivered by Tim Woods, Global Technology Specialist: Surface Treatment Volvo Group Purchasing/Volvo GTO and Ben Porritt, Partner of Outside Eyes. Participants also received updates on several priority regulatory issues currently impacting the industry. Attendees had the opportunity to take part in numerous tours and networking sessions throughout the four day event which concluded with a special reception, dinner and dance held at the resort.

The Leadership Conference is designed to enhance the personal effectiveness and professional knowledge of individuals currently in surface finishing management positions. Plans are now well underway for next year’s Leadership Conference which will be held at the La Playa Beach & Golf Resort in Naples, Florida from February 26 through March 2, 2017. Stay tuned to for further developments as conference plans continue throughout the year.
