From the CEO: Counting down to conference time

AME | August 25, 2023

It is hard to believe that we are a little over nine weeks away from gathering in Cleveland, Ohio for the 39th annual AME International Conference: AME Cleveland 2023. I am so excited to see everyone again. I hope you have registered to attend. If you haven’t, why not?

Conferences are a great way to impact your professional and personal growth. At the AME Conference, we will share, learn and grow. We offer a platform for you to share your experiences, hear from industry leaders and network with fellow attendees.

This year’s AME Cleveland 2023 | Association for Manufacturing Excellence keynote speakers are among the industry’s best subject matter experts. Aneesa Muthana, CEO, president and co-owner of Pioneer Service Inc. and CEO of M&M Quality Grinding, will kick off the conference with her presentation about empowering, not dividing. “Joy, Inc.” and “Chief Joy Officer” author and co-founder of Menlo Innovations, Richard Sheridan, will share how to lead with joy and watch your team fly. Emilio Tenuta, senior vice president of corporate sustainability and chief sustainability officer for Ecolab, will share how to achieve growth in a resource-constrained world.

We will hear from Michael Ray, executive special agent in charge at the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General, on applications of DMAIC in cybersecurity. We also have the honor of hearing from Mike Evans, award-winning author and speaker, who will share how to thrive and excel in the age of disruption. We will announce several other amazing keynotes soon.

Our program and tours will highlight best practices and the latest industry trends. The best part of conferences is the opportunity to network with fellow attendees. Building strong networks opens doors and fosters long-lasting relationships that are invaluable throughout our careers. Many long-time AME’ers have remained friends and networked with each other since we were established in 1985, crediting their personal and company success to their relationships with each other and AME.

We have special rates and perks for signing up for a group – this can be your company, association, neighborhood or coffee group. If you are interested, reach out to me personally.

I look forward to another fabulous event in Cleveland this year. Don’t forget to register soon. As always, please stay safe and keep looking out for one another.
