But the location is not the only reason to attend: we have put together a compelling and timely program that will be important for all fastener industry representatives. ¤ How to Attract, Develop, and Retain Young Workers for Jobs They Don’t Consider Sexy ¤ Cyber Security Made Easy ¤ Business Owners Roundtables and Business Executives Roundtables ¤ A Conversation with Marc Racicot (Former Governor of Montana) ¤ The Impact of Trump’s Tariffs Registration details can be found at www.pac-west.org. You don’t have to be a member of Pac-West to attend! Celebrating Our 50th Anniversary In 1968, some fastener professionals in Southern California decided to get together and form the Los Angeles Fastener Association. About 25 years after that, the Western Association of Fastener Distributors was born. In 2009 LAFA and WAFD unified into what we now know as the Pacific-West Fastener Association. We celebrated 1968-style during the recent Spring Conference in Scottsdale, Arizona with tie dye, lava lamps, a groovy playlist of songs from 50 years ago, and a costume contest. Honorable mention goes to Suzy and Gary Cravens (Advance Components), Jennifer and Frank Hand (Fall River Manufacturing), and Joe and Jennifer Truckey (Cal-Fasteners), with first place honors going to David and Jennifer Palmquist (ND Industries).
