AMBA, MAPP and ARPM Announce Online Workshop Series for Manufacturing Young Professionals

The American Mold Builders Association (AMBA) Emerging Leaders Network, alongside the Manufacturers Association for Plastics Processors (MAPP) and the Association for Rubber Products Manufacturers (ARPM) young professional groups, is launching a new online workshop series: Virtual Ignition – Lighting Your Path to Leadership.

During these monthly workshops, the associations will host a series of speakers, facilitators and exchanges where young professionals and those new to the industry will explore how to lead through an environment of change and uncertainty. These sessions will illuminate new opportunities for leadership growth, empowering attendees to embrace new opportunities along their own path and strengthening their ability to light the way for others.

The first session of the workshop series will be held on May 21, 2020 at 2PM EST. The session, “Leading during Times of Uncertainty,” will be facilitated by Alex Hoffer, Chief Revenue Officer at Hoffer Plastics (St. Charles, Illinois). During the session, Hoffer will explore how maintaining an internal focus on the three critical areas of work, home and self amidst chaos and continual change provides young leaders with the perspective needed to guide others and strengthen the members of their professional and personal communities.

The online workshop sessions will be held on the third Thursday of every month and will include live takeaway discussions during or after each presentation. Every workshop will be free for members of the AMBA, MAPP and/or ARPM associations. To register, visit
