IWDC Owners Meeting


IWDC Member companies are able to leverage their buying power and promote the sharing of best practices, which helps them grow their businesses in today’s ever more competitive and demanding welding and gases industries. 

All of this starts with the owners of these Member companies. It’s our job at the IWDC to provide an environment where owners can come together and learn about each other’s business, share insight into their respective marketplaces and industries, and network with one another. That’s where the annual IWDC Owners Meeting comes in. 

The Owners Meeting is a 3- to 4-day Member-exclusive event consisting of various business sessions, roundtables, seminars, and networking receptions. Owners can expect to listen in on economic and industry-related speakers that broach topics such as profits, performance, national competition, independent companies, mergers and acquisitions, and much more. 

In the course of the meeting, owners are able to share information, experiences, and best practices with like-minded business associates. This has proven many times over to open up boundless opportunities. The IWDC staff also reports on updates and operations within the cooperative, thus making owners aware of the successes achieved on their behalf and for their benefit. 

If you’d like still more information on our Owners Meeting, please contact the IWDC.
