The association promotes the exchange of technology through an annual conference held each year in May. The two day Conference with seminars is filled with technical, environmental and quality presentations supplemented with a table top exhibit to display products and services to the industry. The tabletop display session is part of our Sponsor Hosted Hospitality Event in which refreshments and hors d'oeurves are served and prizes awarded. One can qualify for a prize simply by submitting a survey after each session during the day and by visiting company displays.
