EMI Helps Create Opportunities for the Industry’s Rising Stars

Posted April 15, 2020 at 9:54 am

When attendees of TRSA’s 56th Annual Ehrlich-Stempler Executive Management Institute (EMI) gather this August in the Washington, DC, area, they’ll access unmatched educational, networking and professional-development opportunities through this unique course for leaders of the linen, uniform and facility services industry.

Enrolling a promising manager or two in EMI, set for Aug. 9-14, 2020 at the University of Maryland, Hyattsville, MD drives home your willingness to invest in training that will create a greater opportunity for industry leadership success. Once a week for four years, attendees of EMI return to the University of Maryland to experience cumulative skill building over four days, taught by university-level instructors. Sessions are divided as follows (brochure details at www.trsa.org/emi):

  • Session I – Management Development
  • Session II – Advanced Management
  • Session III – Personal and Interpersonal Relationships
  • Session IV – Business Management in Linen, Uniform and Facility Services

EMI draws attendees from all segments of the linen, uniform and facility services industry, whether the company is a launderer or a supplier of equipment and services to laundries. EMI has a well-rounded attendance of independent companies’ owners, executives and next-generation leaders to chains’ headquarters (including HR/administration) and plant- and depot-based management (GMs, branch and department heads). Individuals who have achieved TRSA’s Certified Professional Laundry Manager (CPLM) certification typically receive 31 credit hours toward recertification by attending EMI.

EMI is hosted concurrently with TRSA’s Roger F. Cocivera Professional Management Institute (PMI). Now in its 31st year, PMI program participants spend free time, meals and evening social outings (this year’s currently planned outings include watching the MLB 2019 World Series Champion Washington Nationals at Nationals Park and an evening exploring National Harbor) with EMI attendees. These activities and events create unique opportunities for professional networking and camaraderie among leaders in the linen, uniform and facility services industry.

Early registration is now open at www.trsa.org/emi ; you’ll save a minimum of $400 when registrations are processed before June 26. An invitation to EMI participation is a smart decision as the institute provides a solid return on employee investment. It’s no secret that linen, uniform and facility services businesses traditionally experience a high annual turnover. EMI’s 56-year tradition of applying modern techniques to management issues aids those who attend in tackling high-priority tasks and long-term workplace challenges specific to the industry.

EMI is an all-inclusive program, with one fee covering all educational components, meals, lodging, and transportation to and from evening events. Review the brochure and learn more at www.trsa.org/emi.
