WMMA Regional Meeting

2017 Regional Meeting

September 13-15, 2017
WMMA Regional Networking Meeting
DoubleTree by Hilton Charlotte
Charlotte, NC

WMMA is pleased to announce its first regional networking and education event in Charlotte, North Carolina. We chose Charlotte, not only because of the number of current WMMA members there, but also because of the number of industry-related companies in the area who are not yet members. We hope that bringing this educational event to the area encourages not only networking among members but an opportunity for outreach within the woodworking machinery community. We encourage everyone to bring a co-worker and a friend to what we hope will become a regular event.
