OHPBA Spring Conference 

Tuesday, April 17, 2018

Pacific NW Truck Museum, Powerland Heritage Park
Brooks, OR (a few miles north of Salem)

Our theme this year is Stop working in your business and make time to work on it. There is a serious problem in the hearth industry- businesses are bleeding resources to retain employees, get customers in the door and keep up with online competition. The fact is that the rules of the game are changing and many companies are not keeping up. There is no better value for you and your employees than the OHPBA Spring Conference. If all you got was motivation out of your employees it would be worth it, but you’ll also hear from national experts in regards to finance, profit and legacy. This can change your business if you choose to act on it. 

The venue is an antique truck museum located at Antique Powerland, the site of the annual “Steam Up.” This will provide an interesting environment for the meeting.

Monday night, we will have a reception at Vagabond Brewing. This working brewery is a ton of fun. You'll enjoy great beer and a relaxed atmosphere. Join us in an open discussion with the owners of Blue Collar Proud, our featured speakers on Tuesday.
