113th Annual Membership Meeting – February 5th, 2018 – Grand America Ballroom

The UMA Annual Meeting of the UMA was held again, during the Utah legislative session, and as in past years, many of the UMA members hosted legislators at their table during lunch. Josh Brown (Rio Tinto), the 2018 UMA Chairman welcomed the members and their guests. President Todd Bingham reviewed association business, and introduced Phil Dean, Utah State Budget Director, and Chief Economist, as the Keynote Speaker.

This year’s theme was introduced: Manufacturing Creates… 2018.

Use #mfgcreates18 and show how your company contributes to Utah’s manufacturing!

Over the coming year, focus will be given to this theme with events and activities.
