More than 200 people participated in the 2007 Fall Conference & Plant Tour Event, which included visits to seven plants, ranging from a yacht manufacturing facility to a wood components factory.

Participants have the opportunity to visit millwork, component and dimension facilities at this annual event.

The WCMA conducts a Fall Conference & Plant Tour Event each year. The Fall Conference presents educational sessions on timely topics of interest to WCMA members, with opportunities for open discussion on common concerns.

Members also tour the production facilities of several dimension, component, cabinet, furniture, millwork and related woodworking companies.

These plant tours provide WCMA members with a unique opportunity to observe innovative woodworking manufacturing operations and discover new manufacturing techniques, exchange ideas and learn about alternative manufacturing methods.

The 2008 WCMA Fall Conference & Plant Tour Event will be held on September 28-30 in Central Iowa. Interesting educational sessions are scheduled in addition to tours of several leading woodworking operations that produce components, cabinetry, lumber, millwork and specialty wood products.
