The Power Transmission Distributors Association is set to host its first ever PTDA Industry Immersion Conference on Feb. 29 in Hollywood, FL.

The one-day, intensive talent development event is designed to help those who are new to the power transmission and motion control (PT/MC) industry grow their interpersonal skills, networking capabilities and other industry essential skills for building successful relationships with coworkers, executives and customers.

 “Every PT/MC employer wants to develop their employees into trusted and valued contributors to their team, company and customers’ success,” said John Newman, BDI’s Vice President of Sales in the Americas and PTDA’s Industry Immersion Task Force Chair. “This event is an exceptional investment in helping new talent hone the skills they need to outperform in 2024 and beyond.” 

In a Jan. 3 news release, PTDA said the Industry Immersion Conference is designed to advance professional perspectives and experience of emerging leaders within the PT/MC industry. The curriculum of the program has been developed by experienced members and includes: 

  • A panel discussion designed to help newcomers discover best practices when working with channel partners. Panelists include veteran PTDA members Jeff Cloud (IBT Industrial Solutions) as moderator and Barabara Ross (Pfannenberg USA), Steve Kalgreen (Akron Bearing Company, Inc.) and AnnaMarie Donaldson (Regal Rexnord).
  • A member panel aimed to help attendees understand how to maintain relationships with customers. Jason Sorce (Bando USA, Inc.) will moderate and John Newman (BDI), Mike Pulley (Bartlett Bearing Co., Inc.) Mitch Bouchard (General Bearing Service Inc.) and Darin Davenport (Affiliated Distributors, Inc.) will serve as panelists.

Additional programming will include learning about various PTDA resources and programs to assist attendees in their roles and informal networking with PTDA leadership.
