TRSA is bringing its popular production summits and plant tours closer to its members allowing them to choose from three regional locations on three different dates. Each TRSA Regional Production Summit will have the same insightful speakers covering topics including enhancing emotional intelligence, preventive maintenance, fire safety, leadership and decision making and process improvement and root-cause analysis. Production managers and general managers from local areas will combine for engaging panel discussions and there will be informative plant tours for each regional production summit.
The West Coast Summit will be the first in the series on 24 January 2024, at The Palm Casino Hotel and Resort, Las Vegas, Nevada. TRSA is teaming up with the Wisconsin Association of Textile Services (WATS) for the Midwest Summit, slated for 1-2 May 2024, at the Hyatt Regency, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The final Regional Production Summit will be held on 15-16 October 2024, at the Newark Liberty International Airport Marriot, Newark, New Jersey, offering plants from the north east easy access to the summit.
Nancy Roberts, CEO and founder, The DISC Wizard, will offer a keynote address for all three summits fo-cusing on emotional intelligence. “Numerous studies have confirmed that 90% of top performers in all fields have high emotional intelligence,” Roberts said. Her keynote will dig deeper into why emotional intelligence is such a crucial factor in personal and professional success, and how employees can be- come more emotionally intelligent.
General sessions with consistent speakers across all three regions will cover these topics:
•Production managers roles in preventative maintenance
• Fire safety strategies for prevention
• Leadership and Decision Making: Are you captain or crew?
• Process improvement and root-cause analysis
• Facilitated roundtable discussions focusing on regional issues, fire safety, production scheduling and leadership development
An interactive panel discussion made up of general managers and industry executives from the local regions will round out each summit. Closing out each summit will be two local plant tours per region. Debriefing with plant-management personnel and other tour attendees following the tours allows for comparison of practices and further insight into these efficiently run plants and is always viewed as a highlight of the summit.
