2019 SME Lean Manufacturing Round Table Series- LL Bean

The SME Lean Manufacturing Round Tables are back!


This is the opportunity to carve out 3 hours a month throughout the Spring and learn from some of the best Lean organizations in Maine about topics critical to any Lean endeavor. 

You’ll also…

  •  Tour and hear presentations from top-notch companies who live and work LEAN every day. 

  • Network and meet new Lean colleagues who will share their experiences and benchmark with you going forward.   

  • Participate in facilitated discussions by a SME chapter member to ensure you get and stay engaged throughout the event. 

  • Enjoy food and refreshments to keep you going for the evening.   

 If you are already an SME member, sign up at the member discounted rate.   If you are not an SME member, your registration cost is a little more, with the difference going towards enrolling you an SME member so you can join in other chapter activities throughout the year.

We do sell the seats as a 4 session package, but allow you to substitute seats among your company.

SME Members: $250
Non-Members: $399 (1 yr SME membership is included)
Students: $50 (1 yr student membership is included)
See full registration options for panelists rates

Seating is limited. Register early to ensure you and your team gets a seat at the table!  

Please register by Monday January 21, 2019. 

The registration fee includes all 4 round table sessions.
