Spring Meetings and Leadership Development Conference

March 21-23, 2018
Hotel Contessa
San Antonio, Texas

PTDA 2018 Spring Meetings combine governance meetings and the Leadership Development Conference to offer networking opportunities along with powerful education for those looking to enhance their leadership skills and to achieve the goals set forth in the PTDA Strategic Plan.

The PTDA Leadership Development Conference is for any up-and-coming leader, including Next Genners* or established leaders seeking for a skill set refresh.

While we prepare information about the PTDA 2018 Spring Meetings and Leadership Development Conference, enjoy the photos and Tweets from the 2017 gathering in New Orleans, La., along with the following recap:

2017 Meeting Recap

A special thank you to U.S. Tsubaki Power Transmission LLC (UST) for sponsoring the hotel key cards for the PTDA 2017 Spring Meetings/Leadership Development Conference.

In 2017, 120 employees of PTDA member companies participated in one or more components of the meetings, including the PTDA Foundation Board of Trustees, PTDA Board of Directors, Manufacturer Council or Committee meetings in addition to the Leadership Development Conference. Some came solely to participate in the networking. Check out the Twitter feed with #PTDA17LDC

Networking is the Flavor of New Orleans

Participants from around the world converged on New Orleans to network, volunteer, collaborate and learn together during the PTDA 2017 Spring Meetings and Leadership Development Conference. Conference educators Jim Trick and Brant Menswar of Banding People Together provided educational entertainment and some deep lessons about collaboration for all participants during the conference kick-off welcome dinner and then engaged the Leadership Development Conference participants in a full day program on March 24.

Jim and Brant asked a familiar question, “Why does collaboration fail so miserably in organizations?” They answered, “Because it’s so complex and there are no defined rules in regards to collaboration,” and then proceeded to help Conference participants untangle the complexities through music.
