2015 MINNESOTA PAINT & POWDER COATING EXPO

Article & Photos by Pat Cullen

 

On March 18th and 19th the Twin Cities CCAI Chapter in conjunction with MnTAP (Minnesota Technical Assistance Program) once again
 sponsored the two day MN EXPO event. The final attendance numbers are not in as of this article, but to date we know that 60 people
attended the March 18th Symposium and there were also 50 people that took part in the Painter Training program that day. As in the
past, the Expo was held at Century College in White Bear, MN.

 

TC-CCAI Board of Director members Tim Milner and Paul Pagel did the heavy lifting and shared co-chair duties for the Expo planning and
 program execution. Important program assistance came from other TC Chapter BOD members Deb Savage who was in charge of lining
up the two days of food catering, Jim Henningsen who arranged for the Century College facility details and Jim Docken who worked
on attendee registrations. Other TC Chapter BOD members assisting with miscellaneous duties during the MN Expo were Tony Wolfbauer,
 Michelle Striggow, Tom Poppitz, Mark Walsworth, Angela Kokesh, Doug Van Duyne, Bernie Walz, Kent Kienitz, Bette Danielson and
 Pat Cullen. Also major thanks to the National CCAI staff who contributed so much to the Expo advertising/graphics.

 

SYMPOSIUM, DAY #1 March 18th: A symposium entitled “Maximum Performance From Individuals and Teams” was presented by
Judy Hartley
. Ms. Hartley is an independent performance consultant specializing in leadership and team development with solid
academic and industry background.

 

Judy Hartley delivered her presentation before a group of 60 attendees covering topic segments that included tools and techniques
for employee performance, teamwork and processes for high

workplace performance. Judy lectured and had Power Point slides, but group participation was also a key element of her presentation.
 Very positive participant comments followed the symposium.  

 

PAINTER TRAINING, Day #1, March 18th: In addition to the symposium, there was a morning and afternoon session presented by
Jeremiah Treloar
and Chris Lampe from the Iowa Waste Reduction Center covering industrial painter training. Each of the two four-hour
long training sessions had a full complement of 25 participants. The highlight of this training session was the unique hands on virtual
reality spray finishing demonstration that each participant was able to use and be graded on their efforts. In addition to the hands on
spray finishing program, the fundamentals and basics of spray finishing were also discussed.

 

EXPO OPENING, Day #2, March 19th: TC-CCAI President, Tony Wolfbauer and Paul Pagel officially opened the Expo welcoming the
approximate 250+ attendees. CCAI Executive Director, Anne Goyer gave the keynote address to the group. Anne talked of the
finishing industry changes from her view of 27 years in the industry. Anne also spoke of the many CCAI membership updates and
benefits, including the CCAI web site upgrade, free finishing videos, member discounts, and various CCAI sponsored events.
