Join us for the first-ever Contractors & Manufacturers Regional Conference! This event is in collaboration with the Associated Builders & Contractors (ABC) and will feature keynote presentations and small-scale breakout sessions on topics relevant to contractors and manufacturers.


Here’s what the day looks like:


Show up, get your breakfast, and spend the first 90 minutes listening to an engaging economic update via livestream from Connor Lokar of ITR Economics. Lokar serves numerous industries as a professional economist and is an engaging and knowledgeable speaker. He will give a general overview of the state of the economy, before diving in on topics relevant to the contracting and manufacturing industries, followed by Q & A with the audience. Sound familiar? You may remember DRMA’s Economic Update event with Brian Beaulieu. This is the same format, only on a larger scale and with a new, Beaulieu-mentored speaker.


Next, the decision is yours! You’ll have the option to attend breakout sessions covering a wide range of topics pertaining to contractors and manufacturers. Each session follows a specific tract such as safety, workforce development/HR, operations/finance, legal, C-suite, manufacturing or contracting specific, and more! Stay in one tract, or mix and match, the choice is yours! Either way, you’re bound to learn something new that will help grow your operation.


To conclude the event, we will reconvene in the ballroom and lunch will be served. During lunch, Jim Spurlino, local contractor, multi-millionaire, and author of Business Bullseye: Take Dead Aim and Achieve Great Success, will give a presentation outlining his keys to success in the business world. Spurlino has a wealth of knowledge in the contracting industry and is sure to offer up valuable insights.


We hope to see you there!
