Meetings & Events

The Association of Millwork Distributors will once again host a spring educational event featuring an interactive one-day workshop in conjunction with a member plant tour.  This spring, AMD is heading to Mobile, Ala., with the meeting set for the Battle House Renaissance Hotel & Spa and a visit set for Barnett Millworks.

“Strategically Aligned Sales Incentives” is the title of the educational workshop, to be presented by Steve Deist and Mike Emerson, partners with the Indian River Consulting Group.  Targeted at distributors and manufacturers, the session will look at the challenge of transitioning a sales force from being self-directed to being management directed.

As part of the plant tour, Barnett Millworks will showcase its rough mill operations–including planning, ripping and defecting rough lumber; finger jointing operations–production of custom mouldings, various trimming operations; manufacturing areas producing door parts such as lock blocks and edge stiles; a custom door and millwork production area, CNC machining stations, a small pilot sawdust operation, and loading and shipping areas.

More information about the event is available on the AMD website.
