GAWDA Conference

Dave Mahoney recently served as the Master of Ceremonies at the 66th Annual Gases and Welding Distributors Association (GAWDA) Convention. Almost 800 people attended the convention, which was held in October in Maui, Hawaii. The theme “Riding the Wave of the Future” set the tone for distributors and suppliers to learn best practices and network with industry colleagues from the United States, Canada and Mexico. A record number of young professionals were on hand as well.
