    A New Name, A New Meeting, A New Era of Innovation

    In its 70-year history, the AFPM Q&A and Technology Forum has undergone many changes. From its beginnings in 1947 as a solid 2 ½ day question and answer session that everyone attended, it has evolved into a one-stop shop for professional, technical, and industry network development. To better recognize the diverse components of the meeting that reach far beyond the “Q&A” the name has been changed to the Operations & Process Technology Summit (The Summit). As we work together, The Summit will continue to meet the challenges and needs of our changing industry and workforce for years to come.

    Save $300 by registering by September 1st and making a sleeping room reservation in the AFPM room block.

    We encourage you to review the toolkit to gain a greater understanding of the conference and how to communicate the value it can provide when attempting to gain attendance approval from your manager.
