The annual business meeting, held on December 6 at Top of the Market, was both informative and fun. Attendees enjoyed beverages, hors d’oeuvres, and camaraderie with fellow DRMA members.
100+ attendees from member companies heard an overview of the 2023 accomplishments with a peek of what’s to come in 2024 and a review of ballot items, including the 2024 budget and ratification of new board members.
Outgoing trustees John Bertsch (Detailed Machining), Michele Mischler (ThomasNet), and Brian Roos (Morris Bean and Numerics Unlimited) were recognized and thanked for their service and dedication to the Association.
Incoming board candidates were introduced: Bill Budde (Production Control Units, Inc.), Mark Neilson (Crown Equipment Corporation) and Lori Vance (Henny Penny)
Among the attendees was a huge group of current and past trustees who are greatly appreciated for their leadership in making DRMA one of the very best regional manufacturing trade associations in the entire country!
Congratulations to the winner of the DRMA Foundation’s 50/50 raffle, which raised $9,180: Keith Bernheisel, who recently retired from Sinclair College, won $4,590 and the other half will be used for DRMA’s efforts to grow and sustain the manufacturing workforce.
