What an exciting AHVAP Conference (Oct. 15-17) in Tampa, FL this year. The Value Analysis attendees received excellent key information revolving around the collaboration and pathway to success of Value Analysis. Many great speakers included Wini Hayes, Dr. Jimmy Chung, Kathy Chauvin, Michael Neely,Barbara Strain, Courtney Bohman, Kevin Valis, Wanda Lane and to top it if off with Future Best Practices In Value Analysis by Dennis Orthman, Mary Potter & Cheri Berri Lesh. In addition, the AHVAP conference sponsors have expanded, collaborated with AHVAP attendees, and have changed the traditional vendor business relationships into valuable sponsor partnerships.
If you didn't get the opportunity to attend the 2014 AHVAP Conference, please plan on attending the AHVAP Conference next year as AHVAP does an awesome job in providing education, networking, and standardization opportunities to increase the "Value" of the Value Analysis Professional!
