CMA TO HOST SHOP TOURS PRIOR TO THE WOOD

CMA TO HOST SHOP TOURS PRIOR TO THE WOOD

The Cabinet Makers Association (CMA) is pleased to announce they will host a regional event on October 17, 2018 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Although dubbed "regional", these types of events typically draw attendees from across the country as well as Canada.

This one-day event will tour manufacturing facilities in the Lancaster area. The day will start with a networking breakfast before the bus departs for Plain & Fancy Custom Cabinetry. The next stop will be Keystone Wood Specialties for a tour and lunch. The day will conclude with a visit to the Cabinetmaking and Wood Technology Program at Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology.

The CMA has been hosting high-value events like 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. In addition to the agenda, the regional events also encourage networking by providing an opportunity to talk shop and share issues, solutions, and even projects.

Registration is $55 for current CMA members and $75 for non-members. Student/Instructor members are free, while non-member students/instructors are $25. Registration includes group transportation, breakfast and lunch. For more information and to register, visit: www.cabinetmakers.org/events

Also make plans to also attend the Wood Pro Expo, which will be held October 18-19 in the Lancaster area. For details and registration, visit www.woodworkingnetwork.com/events/wood-pro-expo-lancaster
