A Message from the Event Chair

The future of surface technology is here, and we as industry decision makers are tasked with the challenging assignment of keeping pace with new developments in order to grow our companies and sustain our industry. Being more effective in what we do is what the 2015 NASF Management Conference is all about.

The event is scheduled for February 15-17, 2015 in Palm Springs, California. This is the ideal opportunity to obtain new knowledge, share experience and advice, and cultivate valuable relationships within our industry.

Our program will be focused specifically on how to strengthen our companies. We’ll offer, among other sessions, a keynote and workshop discussion led by Daniel Feiman, the founder of Build it Backward, a global consulting and training services firm with broad expertise in strategic planning, financial modeling, and process improvement. For three decades, Daniel has helped companies of all sizes – especially small and medium sized businesses – fulfill their potential. We’ll also hear about the policy agenda in Washington and across the U.S. as it pertains to manufacturing and finishing concerns. Stay tuned for more in the coming weeks.

The setting this year is Palm Spring’s beautiful La Quinta Resort, where attendees will have the opportunity to think as well as enjoy the weather and beautiful surroundings.

I truly believe you will find the Management Conference to be of value to your company and a pleasure to attend.
