    Lead with Safety, Focus on Reliability, Succeed in Operations


    In its 71-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. This year’s conference will highlight the need for our industry professionals to lead with safety in operations and focus on reliability of equipment and people.  This will promote operational success. As we work together, the Summit will continue to meet the challenges and needs of our changing industry and workforce for years to come.
