For immediate release

ST. LOUIS, MO (August 6, 2019) – The Equipment Dealers Foundation (EDF) is excited to announce the release of the agenda and session descriptions for its 2019 Workforce Development Summit.

The Summit, which will take place on Wednesday, October 16, 2019 in Louisville, KY is the second meeting of equipment dealers, equipment manufacturers, association executives, educators and other industry stakeholders to discuss the state of the industry in regards to workforce development and what we can do, collaboratively, to improve it.

The first meeting, held in 2017, resulted in the creation of a Student Resource Database and Dealer Toolkit and while EDF and EDA are thrilled with what has been accomplished over the last two years, there is more work to be done.  Please join us in fighting to close the #SkillsGap!
