"Manufacturing in a Time of Mayhem"

The NWPCA Annual Leadership Conference is the premier networking and educational event for the wood packaging industry. The event returns to the popula Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa, March 7-9, 2018.

This year's keynote speaker is Michael Abrashoff, a retired Navy Commander and progressive leadership expert. At 36, he took command of a ship plagued by low morale, high turnover and low performance evaluations. A year later, it ranked #1 in performance, with the same crew. The lesson was clear - leadership matters and culture is everything.
