CMA Announces 2020 National Conference Closing Keynote Speaker

The Cabinet Makers Association (CMA) announced that Dominic Rubino will be the closing keynote speaker at the organization’s 2020 national conference, which will be held March 4-6 in St. Charles, Illinois.

A professional speaker, facilitator, author and business coach, Dominic Rubino is dedicated to helping woodworking professionals work less and earn more. Through his blog, articles, podcast, and videos Rubino has been teaching business improvement tricks to shop owners for almost two decades.

To leave the CMA 2020 event attendees with a memorable conference experience, Rubino will close the conference with insights about how business owners need a map to get their company to the destination. That map is a strategic plan that portrays what the company will look like over the next five years. Rubino’s presentation will outline specific steps to help attendees figure out who will do what by when.

Given the year of the event, the theme of the conference is 2020 Vision: A Clear View of the Woodworking Industry.

Rubino’s presentation connects the overall event theme and the associated sight lines of driving a car: looking in the rearview mirror to see where we have been, checking the blind spot to see what’s happening around us, and shifting gears to accelerate forward. After that, according to Rubino, “The rest is just checking the map and making course corrections to get to your destination.” For more information and to register, visit
