    The conference will kick off on Thursday, September 23rd, with the annual SMA Golf event, a fun day for golfers of all levels. For the non-golfers a self directed tour of the U.S. Mint in Downtown Denver is available.

    This year's learning opportunities are sure to elevate your stair designs.  Our keynote presentation by Andrew DiGiammo will inspire you as he discusses the fundamentals of stair design.  MSU, our testing and research partners, will give a general session presentation on the design value testing project and discuss how the project results will be utilized.  Our breakout sessions will focus on the stair design process, creating impactful designs and shop talk.  These great opportunities are sure to increase your knowledge to help you take your business to the next level. 

    Conference attendees will be wowed by the artisans of our shop tours as we have the privilege of visiting high end architectural woodwork and metal design companies.  Watson Mills and Living Design Studios will provide tours while sharing their successes with you.  The conference program also includes committee meetings and the SMA's Annual Business Meeting.

    The conference program is packed full of networking and learning opportunities that will undoubtedly elevate your stair designs.
