For many years now the FPDA has been an association which has provided important educational and training opportunities for me and many of our employees. The association annual meetings have continued to provide for important networking opportunities with both supplier and distributor along with informative key speaker sessions. As our industry, customers and technologies change, it is critical to have an organization like the FPDA to keep us in step with the changes.
