I'm relatively new to the industry. I went to the PWNA convention in South Carolina last year and learned so much. I also made some awesome friends from all around the country. One of those friends turned me on to a very lucrative project that kept me busy during a slow period! In short, I could not recommend enough getting involved with either the PWNA or the UAMMC. The classes and round tables where awesome!!! It really motivated me and gave me a new outlook at all the opportunities in this industry. I'm so thankful that I met some real "heavy hitters" that are willing to mentor me. Hope to meet you at one or both of them!!
