TRSA’s 2018 event calendar will offer many of the same popular formats that have attracted managers and executives of linen, uniform and facility services companies to TRSA professional development activities in recent years—with two Summits added.

Eleven events have been scheduled, including the new Leadership Summit in June in Rosemont, Illinois (Chicago O’Hare Airport) plus four other Summits, three Conferences and three Educational Institutes following formats staged in 2017 and previously. There is a planned sixth Summit (Marketing and Sales), which is likely to take place in early December.

Returning in 2018 after its 2017 premiere is the second annual Workforce Management Summit (human resources, health and safety) paired with the seventh annual Safety Summit in May in St. Louis.
The Leadership Summit is premiering in response to TRSA members’ interest in an event providing education for and interaction between well-established leaders, young executives and emerging leaders.

The eighth annual Leadership and Legislative Conference (March, Washington, D.C.) will send participants to Capitol Hill for meetings in congressional offices.

On the agenda for both the Annual Conference and Leadership and Legislative Conference are TRSA committee meetings, where members prompt TRSA to act on the operational and management issues that benefit them the most.

The seventh annual Healthcare Conference (in November in Charlotte, North Carolina) is the largest event covering laundering for all types of medical facilities, where participants improve their grasp of practical techniques and operations/financial trends through information-sharing and networking with TRSA members.

The 26th annual Maintenance Management Institute (MMI) is set for September in Philadelphia with the Production Summit and Plant Tours there.

Full details of these and other events on the TRSA 2018 Professional Development Calendar can be found on the association’s website.
