Rolling Meadows, IL – Plumbing Manufacturers International (PMI) held its 2012 Fall Conference in Washington, DC recently, focusing on “Promoting Plumbing as a Profession.”
Focused on strengthening the plumbing industry by elevating its perception as both a vital professional and highly skilled industry, PMI and its members used this conference to lay out the framework for strengthening the partnerships in the industry. From manufacturing to legislative and regulatory sectors, from engineering to environmental, from professional to public, from domestic and to international – all sectors were considered.
Honored at this event was long-time PMI member Craig Selover, director of plumbing products technology for the Masco Corp. He received PMI’s prestigious President’s Award presented by current PMI President Stewart Yang, v.p. of engineering and global faucets for the Kohler Co. Selover served as president for PMI in 1990 and has been a member of the organization for more than 30 years. Established in 2009, the PMI President’s Award is given in recognition of lifetime achievements and outstanding contributions to the plumbing industry.
PMI’s Spring Conference is scheduled for April 7-11, 2013 at the Barton Creek Resort in Austin, Texas.
