The GLS Chapter hosts or participates in various events throughout the year, a number of which can now be held at Automation Alley facilities. For example, two training and networking events are currently being planned for later this spring, one slated to be held in Grand Rapids and the second in the Greater Detroit Area. These types of events, as well as informal get-togethers, are excellent opportunities to learn, grow, and network with other industry and contracting professionals at a local level who work and live within a short distance of one another.
GLS Chapter members or potential members can contact Don Kachman, GLS Marketing Chair, to learn how they can represent NCMA-GLS within the Automation Alley community. Mr. Kachman can be contacted through firstname.lastname@example.org.
