“I learn more about the future of Alabama-Germany business, it’s people, culture, and education in these quarterly meetings, than I do all the other days of the year combined. It’s a safe, multi-cultural environment to not only learn about new ideas, but also exchange and promote our own.” Kirk Atkinson, President, abatAdah Group, Inc.

“Others and I attended the first meetings of the Young Professional Group and it is just amazing how this at first small group surprised itself by growing so quickly. It is a pleasure to meet and greet new talent at each event from different backgrounds – manufacturing, distribution, service just to name a few. This group can be equally important for established professionals as well as young talent. Young talent may meet a future employer; established professionals may meet future co-workers. Just like everything in life – it’s what you make out of it!” Daniel Dueren, Adah International, Inc.
