Executive Roundtable Group

Share. Connect. Grow.

Roundtables provide an opportunity for executives to network with their peers, stay informed on emerging trends, exchange ideas and share best practices in a confidential forum. Participation in an AHTD executive roundtable enhances professional development and business growth.

AHTD members will develop a trusted network with colleagues from the industrial automation industry as they share ideas and discuss challenges that are faced on a daily basis.

AHTD Roundtables are led by an expert facilitator from MRA - The Management Association who ensures each session is an effective and efficient use of time.

Executive roundtables focus on critical conversations within a peer group of 10-12 participants. Due to the sensitive nature of discussion in these groups, potential candidates will be screened for competitive conflict with current participants before being added to an existing roundtable.

Program Details: 8 Sessions

Roundtable Kick-off

Roundtables will kick-off at the Spring Meeting 2017 in Bonita Springs, FL, on Wednesday, May 3, 2017 from 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. There will be another in-person roundtable session onsite at the Fall Meeting on Tuesday, October 3, 2017 from 3:00 – 4:30 p.m. in Asheville, NC. Additional information on logistics will be shared prior to each conference. 

• The remaining sessions will be convened via conference call for 1 – 1 1/2 hours each during six of the remaining months of the year. Specific times and dates will be determined by participants’ schedules.

• All sessions will be facilitated by MRA and may include other subject matter experts depending on the topic scheduled for discussion.

• Participants must commit to regular participation in the meetings, and the two face-to-face sessions at the AHTD Conferences are mandatory.
