SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- The Cabinet Makers Association has announced they will host a regional event on June 22 in Springfield, Missouri. This one-day educational event features forklift training and a tour of CMA member Cabinet Concepts by Design.

Cabinet Concepts by Design was formed in November 2007 by Matt and Shelley Wehner. Over the past 11 years, Matt and Shelly have taken the 6,000 sq. ft. shop with four employees to a 30,000 square foot location with 32 employees.

The classroom portion of the forklift training will be a "train the trainer" session so attendees can go back to their shops to train the rest of their employees. Upon completion, attendees will receive their certification cards. In addition, the instructor will provide a basic overview of the forklift and how it operates. The "hands-on" portion of the certification process must be done at the members’ shop location.

Registration is $55 for current CMA members and $125 for non-members. Student/Instructor members are free, while non-member students/instructors are $25. Registration includes breakfast and lunch. For more information and to regsiter, see http://bit.ly/june22-2018.
