Dr. Siebert will provide best practice examples from Mid-West based companies who have been successful in dealing with these challenges, and by adopting innovative practices have flourished.  He will also provide an update on the businesses and organizations covered in his 2017 presentation

In addition to the guest speaker, there will be several reports presented by various industry professionals, focusing on such topics as: broom corn, Tampico and Palmyra fibers, synthetic filaments; wood, metal and fiberglass handles; mop yarn; wire; packaging; and a foreign exchange update.  The meeting is expected to be completed by noon.
