The AWFS is looking for topics and presenters at its education program, the College of Woodworking Knowledge, held during the 2015 AWFS fair in Las Vegas.
An invitation to submit proposals is open to technical experts, exhibitors with an educational segment, business owners and managers, consultants and other wood products manufacturing professionals.
Seminars are presented in a variety of time slots ranging from one and a half hours to all day trainings. The program includes classroom-style presentations, panels, demos and the SMART (Special Machinery and Relevant Technology) seminars-the technical programs conducted on the show floor early in the morning before the show opens.
Tracks include business management; cabinet/millwork; furniture; small shops 10 and under; software and technology; techniques and applications; safety and environment, and teachers.
The AWFS says attendees at the 2013 fair have expressed particular interest in project management, estimating, finances for small businesses, software topics, new machine and finishing technologies, employee management, leadership and the next generation of workers.??
