MICA Midwest Insulation Contractors Association Events
Links to registration and room reservation information for the 2021 Fall Business Meeting of MICA are shown below. This year's meeting is scheduled for Thursday, October 14, and Friday, October 15, 2021, in Omaha, Nebraska [Please note the change in days from previous years. We are starting a day later in the week than in past years]. Board and Committee members should plan to arrive on Wednesday, October 13, 2021. The site of this fall's meeting is the Marriott Omaha Downtown Capitol District Hotel in Omaha. This will be our first year at this hotel.
The past several years, we have combined an educational seminar with the fall business meeting. This year, the Board decided to host a half-day educational seminar, “Selling for the Non-Sales Professional”, on Wednesday afternoon, October 13, 2021. Registration information regarding this seminar is linked below. There is no cost to attend this seminar, but it is available to members only. If you wish to attend this seminar, you need to register as soon as possible, once you receive the seminar information. Space is limited, and registrations are taken on a first come, first served basis.
This year’s fall business meeting will include updates and discussions on several topics crucial to your business operations. The technical sessions will include presentations on mental health issues in workplace, the environmental impact of CO2 emissions and how our industry can help lower the emissions, the pitfalls of workers’ comp insurance in a multi-state work environment, and an update on OSHA regulations during the Environmental and Safety Committee’s meeting. We will focus on providing the membership with new insights on these current issues as we continue to focus on President Nigl’s theme of “Here and Now” in your industry and in your businesses.
We will continue with our table top product displays again this year for our fabricators, distributors or independent reps. These table top displays will be open for viewing during this year’s Thursday evening reception. We will continue with the early start for the Thursday reception. In order to accommodate earlier dinner reservations, our reception will begin at 5:00 p.m. and conclude at 6:30 p.m. This will still leave you with plenty of time for dinner, networking, and socializing with your fellow MICA members.
The discounted room rate at the Omaha Mariott is $144.00 per night, single or double occupancy. Included in this rate is complimentary wireless internet in your guestroom. Room reservations are to be made using the Marriott Central Reservation number. You should call the reservations department at (844) 696-3779 to make your individual room reservations. To receive the contract rate, you need to identify that you are with the Midwest Insulation Contractors Association group. Please reserve your room as soon as possible, but no later than September 22, 2021. This is our cut-off date for reducing our room block without any penalty. I will monitor our block of rooms and adjust our block accordingly but once our block is full, we will not be able to accommodate your rooming needs at the discounted rate. In order to help assure yourself a room at the hotel, we encourage you to make your room reservation as early as possible [NOW]! Once our block is full or once we reach the cut-off date, any remaining rooms in our block will be released. Any room reservations made after that date, will be honored on a space and rate available basis. You will not be guaranteed the $144.00 a night rate. Your cooperation in making this advance registration call as soon as possible is most appreciated.
This year’s program is a must attend for you and your key employees. We have tiered this year’s registration fee to encourage more participation by individual firms. The registration fee is $260.00 for the first attendee from a member company. Registration for all additional attendees from a given company is reduced to $250. Please complete the enclosed fall business meeting registration form and e-mail/mail/fax it to the MICA office by October 1, 2021. Your prompt response helps us to plan a more efficient and effective meeting for you. Please note that you can pay the registration fee by credit card or by check.
The fall business meeting is designed to help you to become a better, more educated business professional. We have designed a program that not only addresses problems but also provides you with solutions.
