March 2, 2022 Hyatt Coconut Point at 3p CALUSA Meeting room.

The American Brush Manufacturers Association is excited to share the schedule of topics which are to be a part of Meet the Pros roundtable discussions as a part of the 105th Annual Convention to be held March 2-4, 2022. People enjoy learning from a group with shared experiences and shared issues. Most everyone is curious about sharing and benchmarking among their peers; learning what industry leaders and fellow businesses are doing, or have done concerning certain industry related topics that affect everyone.

Along these lines ABMA is presenting “Meet the Pros Roundtable” at the ABMA 105th Annual Convention. Envision a room with 6 tables and an opportunity for shared discussion over a 90 minute window. Discussion lasts 13 minutes followed by a two minute passing period. Completely open format. Bring your best ideas and best practices to share. Visit one table or all six.  Our “pros” come from within our industry and are all members of the ABMA Emerging Leaders, a group of dedicated young brush industry professionals.

Our “pros” will come prepared with a short 1-2 minute presentation on their topic to get the discussion started. Topics are not related to specific products or machinery, but for 2022 focused on current demographic and age related issues that are industry-wide and affect everyone.
