Why attend?

“The opportunity to rub shoulders with other manufacturers at the national events has been invaluable. The openness and willing to help from almost every member was mind boggling. In each 3 day event we were given many invitations to see other members operations and have developed some strong relationships.

We have benefited from seeing different shop layouts and procedures; seeing new technologies that are shaping our future; talking with others about subjects like payment schedules, profit expectations, and management coaching; and so much more. We are aspiring to be better and our CKCA membership is helping us get there.” –
