Plumbing Manufacturers Institute hosts 2010 Spring Meeting

ROLLING MEADOWS, ILL. — The Plumbing Manufacturers Institute (PMI) will host its 2010 Spring Meeting, March 14-17, at the Hotel Del Coronado, San Diego, Calif.

This year's meeting will revolve around the theme "Expanding the Value." Current PMI president, Lee Mercer, director of product compliance for Moen Inc., has pledged, during his term, to expand PMI value to existing members, prospective members and globally.

In keeping with the theme, PMI is working to expand the value of the meeting by putting together a list of speakers and guests that both inform and entertain.

The PMI Spring Meeting will kick off with an opening keynote by Brett Farmiloe and Zach Hubbell, who will present a program entitled, "Pursue the Passion." This program focuses on a subject many managers are facing today — how to motivate and ignite the passions of younger generations.

Sustainability, legislation, regulation and standards harmonization remain high on PMI's radar screen. As such, PMI will host a plumbing industry profile, set for Tuesday, March 16. This roundtable event will cover international and domestic plumbing issues affecting the industry. Guests invited to participate in this discussion include representatives from Canada, Australia, the United Kingdom, Singapore and key water and plumbing associations in the U.S.

The Hotel Del Coronado, the location for the PMI Spring Meeting, is located on Coronado Island in San Diego. PMI has secured a group rate of $199 a night.
