SMTA International is just about a month away, so I asked SMTA Presi- dent Martin Anselm to discuss t h e s h o w a n d w h a t m a n ufacturing professionals should expect to take away from this event, now in its second year at the Minneapolis Convention Center. Andy Shaughnessy: Martin, how are you doing? Long time, no see. Now, you were recently reelected as the head of SMTA. Martin Anselm: Hi, Andy. Yes, it's been a while. I am, once again, the president of the associa- tion.

Around September 2024, I'll be handing the baton to the next pres- ident of the SMTA, whoever gets elected. Shaughnessy: Great. Now, SMTA International is around the corner. Tell us why everyone should attend SMTAI?
