Delegates and Partners universally praised the event. “This was my first FMA Summit- what a great experience! I attended as a Supply Chain Manager for my new position in the company, together with key company engineers. We met after the day’s presentations and started to develop a plan to initiate a company Sustainability Program” said one of our delegates. “We hope to announce programs we will ‘spin’ off this Summit within the next year. Great job!” ***
