Please note: Supplier members from competing companies may attend the Industry Spotlights. Normally, we would request that you ask permission of the presenting supplier before attending. Because of the virtual platform, this is harder to control. Instead we simply ask that you be respectful and not post anything or pose questions that could be construed as self-promoting, challenging, or demeaning of the presenter or presenting company. Thank you.
