STAFDA gets down to business

The association’s annual convention will serve networking, knowledge and an hour with a former secretary of state

Some things will never change. There will always be a need for professionals to meet face-to-face and share experiences.

There will be plenty of that during the Nov. 4 to 6 STAFDA Convention & Trade Show at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.

Of course, some things change all the time — products, customers, business and communications among them. And the group’s 36th annual event offers a lineup of updates, workshops and presentations that address those moving targets.

“We cram a lot into three days, including top business experts presenting educational workshops,” said STAFDA executive director Georgia Foley.

A highlight on the agenda is a Nov. 5 presentation from former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. Currently professor of political science at Stanford University in Palo Alto, Calif., Rice will speak on politics and the United States, and global economies on the day before the Nov. 6 presidential election.

She’ll be joined during the general session by two State-of-the-Industry addresses, one from Kramer Darragh, STAFDA president, and the other from Jim Fall, business and operations director for 3M’s industrial adhesive and tape division.
