You may remember Nelson Company was honored with the NWPCA’s 50 year membership award last year. This year, Nelson’s own David Caltrider, John Clarke and Rich Reiher all attended the 2014 NWPCA Annual Leadership Conference. This year was the largest ever attendance in the history of these conferences!
New pallet manufacturers, recyclers, pallet pooling companies, lumber providers, equipment providers, universities and end users from companies such as Costco and DuPont gathered in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida from March 1-3, 2014 for the conference. Companies from the US, South America, Mexico, Canada and Europe were in attendance.
The conference was packed with two days of seminars, workshops and networking opportunities. We asked Rich for his top takeaways from this year’s conference. Here is what he had to say…

Save the date! Next year’s NWPCA Annual Leadership Conference will be held in Tucson, Arizona from March 11-13, 2015.
