Undoubtedly, the most valued benefits of KCMA membership are its educational programs and networking opportunities.
Each year, KCMA members gather for high-caliber conferences and plant tours, each offering invaluable chances to absorb state-of-the-art management and production techniques and to network with the best in the business.
KCMA Fall Management Conference, Exposition & Plant Tours
September 28-October 1, 2013, Sioux Falls, South Dakota
Interested in learning some secrets of the trade? KCMA's educational program is like no other.
Each year, KCMA proudly presents a management conference, supplier's exposition, and one-of-a kind plant tours. The plant tours are especially unique because members generously open their doors to their peers (and, yes, their competition) for a glimpse at the inner workings of some of the country's most successful cabinet manufacturers.
KCMA Management Conference: Full-day educational sessions. Timely presentations by experts, panel discussions, and roundtables. Manufacturers and suppliers tackle management, manufacturing, and regulatory compliance problems.
Table-top Exposition for Suppliers: Two receptions at the Management Conference provide a relaxed atmosphere designed to facilitate product viewing and discussion between suppliers and manufacturers. Low-cost opportunity to show new products to a quality audience.
Plant Tours: Attendees see firsthand the operation of member companies.
