2019 Association Leadership Meeting

Association Leadership Meeting

March 26-27, 2020
Four Seasons Resort & Club Dallas at Las Colinas, Texas

Plan to join SMACNA’s senior leadership and your fellow chapter officers and chapter executives at the Association Leadership Meeting in Dallas, Texas. 

This highly interactive event provides association leaders with an opportunity to:

  • Work through chapter issues collaboratively with your peers
  • Learn about SMACNA chapter products and services from staff content experts
  • Engage with an industry and trade association expert, Eric Anderton, on volunteer leadership
  • Hear from a panel of SMACNA Premier Partners on the impact of new technologies on their operations
  • Share ways to increase member participation in chapter events
  • Increase participation of younger contractors in chapter leadership

The meeting is structured to allow Chapter leaders the opportunity to meet with current SMACNA National elected leadership and senior staff in an informal setting.  Ample time has been built into the schedule to allow for discussions on the items important to you.
