EXPO 2020- 100 YEARS STRONG - sCHEDULE OF EVENTS
We are very excited to be celebrating 100 years as an organization and have another great conference and expo planned.
Tim Niehaus is President of the Miami Corporation. In 2014, as a member of the 4th generation family ownership of the company, Tim and his partners made the decision to transition the company to an employee owned business. Tim has his MBA from Xavier University and has served on the board of several non-profit organizations.
Steve Siener is 3rd generation family owner of The Cooley Group. He has 36+ years in the industrial fabrics and single ply roofing industries. In addition he and his family move to Europe to run a Cooley company in the Netherlands. He has also traveled extensively around the world promoting Cooley products and US industrial fabrics. He was recently elected to be a member of the IFAI Advanced Technical Products group.
We want to start by thanking YOU - for 100 years of togetherness, expertise, and growth. This expo is all about bringing together the people who make an impact on our industry, and celebrating the ideas we’ve all brought to the table - and the expo floor.
To celebrate 100 years of where we’ve been, we’ll take a comprehensive look into the future with interactive sessions on topics around communication, code, and connecting with customers. While we have the honor of setting up the session, we leave it to you to bring the experience to life. This expo would be nothing without your participation and shared perspective.
An anniversary marks a date in which an event took place in a previous year - many times marking the forming of a relationship or the celebration of a success. Here, we have the opportunity to do both. We’re celebrating the relationships you’ve all formed with one another, giving us a reason to continue this event year after year. We mark the 100 year anniversary of the NECPA expo by inviting you to look ahead to the next 100 years with us.
We ask that you bring your thoughts as to how we can continue to transform the industry, and redesign what it means to be customer centric and relationship-oriented. Thanks for bringing this expo to life with us - we hope that you continue to find value and purpose here into the next generation.
Here’s to the future. And here’s to YOU.
Peter Douglas, President NECPA
