April 14th | 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM

A plant manager’s job used to be focused on keeping the plant running as the main goal. Today, the plant manager has many different priorities, and this year’s Plant Management Institute will focus on topics crucial to performing the responsibilities and tasks required of plant managers and their management team. Moderated by a Plant Management Institute Board Member, this meeting will be held as a roundtable, allowing for open and honest discussion between peers.
