MEMBER HIGHLIGHTS
Successful 14th Annual Tri-Association Manufacturing Conference
“Built new relationships”; “outstanding keynote speakers”; “workshop presenters were very knowledgeable”; “enjoyed spending the day together outside the shop” were just a few comments from guests at this year’s successful annual Tri-Association Conference.

Over 125 guests from Northumberland, Quinte, Kawartha & Durham regions congregated together on Oct 24 in Belleville to investigate and dig deep into the conference topic Managing Change.
“The energy at the conference throughout the day was remarkable. Eastern Ontario manufacturers’ and associates brought their energy, open mindedness and excitement to the table and then ended the day with new strategies to improve their business, the chance to share information and to build our manufacturing community together” stated NMA President, Fred Kosseim.

A huge thank you to all our conference sponsors. We couldn’t have achieved success without you!
