IPMA Conference Just A Month AwayMay 6, 2011
One month from today, Dr. Jairy C. Hunter Jr., president of Charleston Southern University, will take to the stage to address in-plant managers from 35 different states at the In-Plant Printing & Mailing Association's annual conference. Hunter, the opening keynote speaker, will speak about "Effective Leadership Skills for Turbulent Times" at the Charleston (S.C.) Marriott.
IPMA has extended special pricing for this one-of-a-kind event to May 10th (next Tuesday), so interested in-plant managers should act quickly. Registration information can be found here.
The IPMA conference is an excellent way to meet fellow in-plant managers who share your concerns. Plus, the keynotes, general sessions and small group sessions will send you home with numerous ideas of ways you can improve your in-plant. There will also be a two-day vendor fair to let you see some of the latest equipment and software available for in-plants. (A variety of special drawings and raffles will be going on throughout both days.)
Session topics include: How to Justify Equipment So Your CFO Approves, Variable Data Campaigns, Identifying What Should Stay, What Should Go, Achieving Excellence in Your In-plant, In-plant Strategies that Work, Reposition Your In-plant to Grow, Figuring Total Cost of Ownership, Making a Seamless Shift from Offset to Digital, Strategies that Deliver Big Returns, Today’s In-plant from Management’s Perspective, How to Wipe Out MFD Hard Drive Security Dangers, Maximize the Potential of Wide Format, How to Handle Suspicious Mail, Developing a Budgeted Hourly Rate, Strategies for Developing Managed Print Services, Transform Your Team from Average to Awesome, Preparing for Future USPS Changes, Intelligent Mail Barcode, and Self Promotion Doesn't Cost It Pays.
It's not all work, though. On the evening of June 6, attendees will enjoy dinner at Middleton Place, a national historic landmark and home of America's oldest landscaped gardens. Craft demonstrators and interpretive guides will be on hand to describe life on the estate in the 18th century.
