PMA Recognizes its Volunteer Leaders
For any organization to not only survive 75 years, but to prosper while doing so is quite an achievement and is truly a testament to the commitment and dedication of its people. In the case of a trade association, those people are the volunteers who have served in leadership, and PMA has been blessed to have so many step forward over the years to fulfill that need.
Our 75-year anniversary is a perfect time to publicly recognize the efforts of all of our volunteer leaders.
PMA commissioned artist Mark Brabant to create a work of art—“Forming Value”—that not only says thank you, but, also, in a picture tells the story of how volunteer leaders historically have brought value to the organization and will continue to do so into the future.
The piece’s central theme is the “working hands,” representing all PMA members that have in the past and into the future continue to diligently work together to “add value” to the metal coil that ties our industry together.
The hands are multi-colored to represent PMA membership through the rainbow of colors found in their corporate logos – whether manufacturing or suppliers – who all play an important part of “imparting value” to the metals being formed by our industry.
PMA was created and will be sustained by the commitment and dedication of past and future board members to our mission: “To shape the environment of the metalforming industry, leading innovative member companies toward superior competitiveness and profitability.”
The symbols arching over the “working hands” represent the dozens of supply-chain industries that PMA members quietly and without fanfare support every day.
PMA is presenting a print of this original work of art to all past board members, and going forward all PMA board members will receive one as they finish their tenure on the board.
To all board members, past and present, thank you for your service.
