August 16-19th, the associates of the Leadership Development Program, from WPC and across the CGX network, met in San Antonio, TX for the annual National Associates Meeting. This conference is a four day event created to bring everyone together, build each individual’s career and their knowledge of the CGX network.
The conference starts out with the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting on Thursday, followed by a networking reception. This year’s guest presentation was given by Brad Karsh from JB Training Solutions. Each CGX company delivered a presentation on their Company Improvement Plan, which challenges each company to make a positive contribution around their plant and share that success with their peers. Each Associate partakes in several breakouts of their choice, depending on their career interests. The meeting is ended with a Quiz Show that test the Associates’ knowledge of the CGX network and industry as a whole.
It’s not all work — Friday night everyone was paired into dinner groups for a night out in the San Antonio town. Saturday, an event was planned, for all to attend, at Rio Rio Cantina, a local, two-story, Mexican Restaurant. Check out the pictures taken throughout the weekend!
