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

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Cabinet Makers Association (CMA) will host its popular “What’s Your Problem?” roundtable discussion during the co-located Wood Pro Expo Texas and Cabinets & Closets Conference and Expo.

The CMA event is scheduled for 8 a.m. Thursday, March 12 at the Arlington Convention Center. The session, sponsored by DC Distributing, includes breakfast. Participants do not have to be a CMA member but must register to attend.

The breakfast roundtables offer an opportunity for cabinet and closet professionals to collaborate on solving problems ranging from managing a business through manufacturing issues. This breakfast event offers a unique outlet to share business challenges and learn from others who have been there, done that, and succeeded. 

The roundtables will conclude in time for participants to attend the Lean manufacturing session featuring Dustin Hunter of Hunter Trim & Cabinets and FDMC Editor Will Sampson.

CMA is also organizing a panel discussion on "Diversifying Your Business" featuring three of its members. The session will be held on Wednesday, March 11 during the Wood Pro education conference track.
