PRESIDENT'SLETTER

It All Began
60 Years Ago
MAX HAINS

IT IS NOT POSSIBLE for me to accurately pres-

ent a "full color, three dimensional" account
of six decades of NOMMA and its services
to the industry. However, this is a time to pay
tribute to those who have led and supported
our great association throughout the years.
The founders saw the need for a way in which
fabricators could work together to improve our
industry and their own businesses, and they
went to work on it.
NOMMA, like any other growing organization, has undergone constant change since its
inception in 1958. There have been numerous
challenges throughout the years - times when
the financial status of the association and the
Fabricator magazine, the one you are reading
right now, was bleak. There were also some
disappointments along the way.
But through all the hardships, all the ups
and downs, there have always been those
who believed in NOMMA as a necessary force
in the industry. Those same individuals were
also willing to contribute their time and money
to keep it alive.
The Fabricator magazine, the official publication of this organization since the beginning, has provided the industry as a whole
with a means of communication, an outlet for
effective advertising, and a source of valuable information for fabricators across the
nation. Even in today's age where content

and messages can be buried under the mass
amounts of information we are inundated with
daily, the Fabricator magazine is ranked as one
of the highest member benefits according to
all member survey analysis.
I would like to thank all of our current and
past advertisers and exhibitors. Because of
the help and support like yours, our association
has remained a viable one; one that has been
thriving for the last sixty years. So, thank you!
We also have added some great new sponsorship opportunities for the 2019 METALfab
by combining our annual trade show with
American Fence Association (AFA) and
International Door Association (IDA). By
partnering with AFA and IDA for our annual
trade show, you will get exposure like never
before. The sooner you sign up, the quicker
you will see the return on your investment. If
you are interested, contact Stephen Dennis
at stephen@nomma.org or 314-561-6641.
We will continue to do our best to provide a
very targeted market for your products and/
or services.
In closing, as NOMMA members, please
remember to seek out the advertisers, exhibitors, and sponsors who support our association and give them any consideration possible
when making purchasing decisions. Thank
them whenever you can, and let them know
how much they are appreciated.
