The Power Transmission Distributors Association (PTDA) is now taking registrations for the 2016 Leadership Development Conference to be held on March 3-4, 2016, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Suites – Historic District, Charleston, S.C.

PTDA members continuously seek ways to bring their future management team up-to-speed so they can step into a supervisory role ready to excel. The 2016 Leadership Development Conference fulfills that need. Designed for emerging power transmission/motion control leaders who want to enhance their management skills, network in small group settings and learn best practices that support business results, those participating in this year’s conference will benefit from two sessions:

  • “Ready. Get Set. Lead.” is a dinner program by Randy Disharoon, director global accounts, Rexnord Industries, LLC, on how to quickly ramp up younger leaders for success to kick-off the conference and
  • “Businessopoly” is a full-day interactive team-oriented business simulation game, led by industry veteran Michael Cinquemani, president & CEO, Master Power Transmission, Inc.

Cinquemani said, “We are going to really challenge people to give them a deeper understanding of their decision-making: how it affects the profit and loss statement, the balance sheet, the statement of cash flows, and then review their results compared to their initial plans.” Registration is open to all employees of any PTDA member company and is limited to 48 participants.
