CMA to serve breakfast with a side of problem-solving at WPE California

SAN DIEGO -- The Cabinet Makers Association (CMA) will host its popular “What’s Your Problem?” roundtable discussions at Wood Pro Expo California, co-located with the Closets Conference and Expo.

The CMA's event is scheduled for 8 a.m. Thursday, April 28 at the San Diego Convention Center. The session, sponsored by Pennsylvania Lumbermens Mutual Insurance Company, includes breakfast. Participants do not have to be a member of the CMA but must register to attend for the nominal fee of $10. 

The breakfast roundtables offer an opportunity for cabinet, closet, and custom wood products professionals to collaborate on solving problems ranging from business management topics to manufacturing issues. The roundtables provide a unique forum to share business challenges and learn from others who have been there, done that, and succeeded. 

The CMA, in partnership with FDMC, is organizing the full-day Wood Pro Conference scheduled for Wednesday, April 27.

About the Cabinet Makers Association
The Cabinet Makers Association (CMA) was incorporated in 1998 by a group of custom cabinet makers who thought the small to mid-size shops needed to network and help each other grow profitably. Currently, CMA membership is made up primarily of 20 or fewer employee operations, with the vast majority being 1-5 person shops. For more information, visit
