The Valve Manufacturers Association of America (VMA) has announced the 2020 Valve Industry Leadership Forum in New Orleans, La.

The Annual Valve Industry Leadership Forum will be held February 27-28,  at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in New Orleans. This is the industry’s premier executive networking event, featuring executive-level analysis on the trends, management strategies, manufacturing innovations, politics and economics affecting the valve industry.

Bryan Burns, president and CEO of DeZurik and VMA chairman, said, “Each year I build vital relationships and leave with a deeper understanding of how to address the issues affecting our industry.  I encourage all valve industry leaders to attend in order to strengthen their networks.”

The keynote, Lead Smart through High Performance Cultures, will provide insights on developing, motivating and empowering employees to achieve extraordinary results.  The event also features content on manufacturing 4.0, legal issues from tariffs to marijuana, a global economic outlook, attracting and retaining a strong workforce, an examination of national political issues, and succession planning / knowledge transfer.

This event is open to VMA/VRC members, and is designed for executives, managers, emerging leaders, and other valve industry leaders.  Non-members are encouraged to attend by contacting VMA president Heather Rhoderick at hrhoderick@vma.org or by calling 202-331-8105 x306.
