 Great Expectations - Set Your Strategy for 2019 and Beyond

Join us for the annual Mountain States and Mid-America Lumber Dealers Leadership Conference October 4th and 5th in Denver, Colorado!

The first annual Women in Industry Roundtable will be held just prior to the general conference on October 2nd and 3rd in Denver at the same location. The WIIR Conference offers an unparalleled opportunity for women in all facets of the LBM industry to help sharpen their leadership skills. This event was created to inspire and encourage!

Why should you attend the MSLBMDA/MLA Leadership Conference?

Our industry is changing rapidly. Learn from industry experts on what trends are evident and developing, and how to focus your business to successfully navigate these changes.

Educational sessions will cover many topics that concern our businesses today, including:

  • Economic trends - present and emerging

  • Leadership in today’s business climate - leadership skills for today

  • The labor shortage and what to do about it - creating a culture for hiring, retention and promotion

  • The LBM industry today - mergers and acquisitions, independent lumber dealer’s progression, the LBM “State of the Union” today and future trends

  • Lumber pricing and tariffs - Is there hope for commodity pricing decreases?

  • Cybersecurity - hackers are hitting the LBM industry with increasing frequency. Are you prepared? Learn how to protect your business.


This year, MSLBMDA is pleased to host dealers from our sister association, the Mid-America Lumbermen’s Association. Dealers from Kansas, Nebraska, Missouri and Arkansas will be joining our group, which will give us a wonderful opportunity to meet dealers from other areas of the country, to share best practices and new ideas.

The relationships we have in the LBM industry are truly one of our best assets! Don’t miss the opportunity to learn, share and sharpen the saw in a collaborative and engaging environment!
