Logo of the Natural Stone Institute.

In our NSI-channel, we publish the following information from the Natural Stone Institute (NSI):

The Natural Stone Institute and Stone World magazine are pleased to announce that the remaining events in the 2021 Stone Industry Education Series will take place in-person. Events are scheduled in five cities throughout the United States.

After a successful pivot to Virtual Stone Summits in 2020 and early 2021, the remaining in-person events for 2021 will cover topics relevant to stone fabricators, including maximizing shop efficiency and profits, using metrics to measure success, understanding OSHA safety regulations, and creating a plan for finding and retaining top talent. Stone Summits will be facilitated by a team of experienced industry leaders including GK Naquin, Duane Naquin, and Tony Malisani. Each event will include ample time for networking and group discussions focused on business management, technical issues, and marketing.
