The MTI Board of Trustees is excited to announce the details for the 2022 Spring Meeting are complete and the hotel block and meeting registrations are now open. Every MTI meeting has an exciting vibe to it that helps members refresh their perspective on the future, refuel their energy for leading their company, and connecting them in with the most creative minds in heat treating.

Three key elements make MTI Meetings a must attend event:



In today’s fast-paced, ever-changing environment, it’s easy to feel alone in the daily grind of challenges faced by a heat treating company. Not at MTI! When you attend a MTI meeting, you are immediately welcomed in and connected with a diverse set of owners and key executives from many regions. All who share the same challenges and opportunities as you do. During MTI’s social events and breaks during educational sessions, you will learn creative ideas from those who are implementing them successfully to meet challenges in labor, technology advancements, operations, and quality compliance. Many who attend state that the connection element alone is worth being at an MTI meeting. 



MTI’s Education Committee has done another outstanding job in designing a program that hits at the heart of issues that members want to dig into. On day 1, members will hear from Nick Espinosa from Security Fanatics on the evolution of compliance with CMMC and DoD new rules. Anyone doing business with the DoD or connected to a company doing business with the DoD will be subject to these new rule changes.  Compliance is complicated and expensive. Nick will break it all down into layman’s terms to help members navigate the rocky road of compliance.


Following Nick will be MTI’s famed sales forecasting company, ITR Economics. One of ITR’s leading economists will be presenting the data behind the forecasts for heat treating sales and eight industry sectors that drive heat treating sales. ITR will also dig into the four segments of their business cycle model and show members how to use their rates of change model to help predict future sales for more effective budgeting accuracy. In this time of sales fluctuations, this will be valuable information.


In a recent survey, 70% of MTI members shared that technical specifications have a huge impact on their productivity, profits, and production. With that in mind, on day 2, two MTI members, who are highly-involved in the area of technical specifications, will share the keys behind technical specifications. Sharing how you can actually influence the design of the specifications you have to comply with, and how to manage the specification process to maximize your compliance success. During their presentation, members will have any opportunity to share their experiences and best practices with regards to managing quality and specifications.


Day two will end with MTI’s featured keynote speaker, Shawn Rhodes, on How to Pivot Without Sacrificing Your Results. In business, the best plans sometimes don’t work out as planned. In Pivot Point, award-winning Marine Corps war correspondent, Shawn Rhodes, shows how organizations can turn on a dime and still achieve their goals. Using the same methods high-performing teams employ in the most challenging environments on the planet, Pivot Point guides organizations to create bulletproof businesses that can leverage change without sacrificing results. Pivot Point is a powerful tool in the hands of business leaders seeking to improve the performance and profitability of their teams. Using stories and lessons Shawn uncovered on battlefields and in the largest companies on the planet, he shares how to succeed in constantly-changing business environments.



MTI’s Spring Meeting will be hosted at the amazing Westin Beach Resort in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. The Westin Resort is located on a pristine stretch of Hilton Head Island's Atlantic beachfront, and boasts approachable luxury and a renewing wellness experience. The Resort features soothing coastal colors and décor, accompanied by luxurious and comfortable amenities. Join us for "farm & sea to table" dining at the resort's on-site restaurants, or enjoy a refreshing poolside cocktail. Take a dip in the three outdoor pools just steps from the white sand, luxuriate in a revitalizing treatment at their Heavenly Spa, or play golf on Hilton Head’s world-class courses. The Westin welcomes guests with sun-filled guestrooms featuring Heavenly Beds and private balconies, with views of the island, resort, and ocean.
