GAWDA Spring Management Conference


The annual spring meeting of the Gases and Welding Distributors Association (GAWDA) moves to the Midwest this year and shifts its focus to presentations designed to provide tactical, take-home solutions and process-oriented business education.

Registration is now open for the Spring Management Conference, which takes place in St. Louis, Missouri, 6th to 8th May, according to GAWDA Executive Director John Ospina. The event is based at the St. Louis Union Station Hotel. Its theme is, ‘Gateway to Progress: People, Process, Plan.’ GAWDA 2017-2018 President Ned Lane, President of Cee Kay Supply Co., of St. Louis, will preside over the meeting. GAWDA has a special registration offer: if a company registers three full delegates, the third delegate’s registration is free.

“This year, the Spring Management Conference is designed to focus more intently on bringing GAWDA company management and operations decision-makers information which addresses their everyday issues and questions,” says Ospina. “The speakers selected and the programme format are intended as an idea platform for tactical networking, process-oriented business education and the presentation of actionable, take-home solutions,” he adds.

Much of the programme reflects 2017 – 2018 GAWDA President Lane’s ‘People, Process, Plan’ philosophy, Ospina says. Lane helped select speakers who will address the realities member businesses deal with every day, including achieving operating excellence, maximising retail space, quarterly planning and hiring and retaining an excellent workforce.
