More Than 2,500 Attending VPPPA National Conference

About 2,300 people pre-registered for the event, and 300 more registered on Aug. 25 to attend it.

NASHVILLE – Pre-registration for this week’s 29th Annual National VPPPA Conference totaled about 2,300, and 300 more people registered on Aug. 25 as attendees gathered at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center for the much-anticipated conference, VPPPA board member J.A. Rodriguez, Jr., CSP, said.

Events began in earnest Aug. 26, with the Labor/Management open forum kicking off a busy day. The annual membership meeting, a two-part Opening Session, and the evening reception in the exhibit hall also took place Aug. 26.

VPPPA Board Chairman Mike Maddox told attendees during the Aug. 26 opening general session that Phillips 66 sent 72 of its personnel to the conference, more than any other company. ExxonMobil's Beaumont plant sent the most representatives from any single plant, he said. Maddox also said attendees came from Canada, Costa Rice, and the United Arab Emirates.

More than 7,600 people attended VPPPA's national and regional conferences this year, he said. "VPP is alive and well, and we are not going anywhere. We will be here," Maddox said.
