A Special Invitation from FMA’s Chairman of the Board

Dear Industry Members,

I, William “Jeff” Jeffery, CEO of IRMCO,  would like to cordially invite you to FMA’s Annual Meeting in Nashville on March 5-7, 2019. This is an unparalleled opportunity to join hundreds of metal fabricators, processors, and distributors to share expertise and experiences.

I moved to Nashville from Chicago 11 years ago. It was a sleepy little city back then, but boy has that changed! A few years ago this town became an “It City” — and for good reason. Not only does it have low taxes and a business-friendly local government, it’s full of young people here for tech, logistics, music, and more. If I sound pumped, it’s because I am.

The FMA staff has prepared an amazing lineup. Throughout the three action-packed days you will:

  • Gain impactful insights from topnotch speakers who will share market trends on the horizon.
  • Participate in interactive panel discussions and peer-to-peer round tables exploring topics like automation, disruptive technologies, robotics, safety, workforce development, and much more.
  • Celebrate leaders in our industry at the Fabricator of the Year Award presentation and Steel Executive of the Year Award dinner.
  • Expand your business relationships by networking during multiple receptions and activities, including two golf outings, a plant tour of a local manufacturing facility, and a night out at Ole’ Red Nashville.



Book your room at the Westin, which is second to none and right in the middle of all the action on Broadway and SoBro. Our room block is a great deal (FMA’s discounted rate of $269/night is available until Feb. 1, 2019). Get your spot booked before we fill up, and I’ll see you soon in the Music City.
