UAW President Ron Gettelfinger to speak at the April 15 lunch meeting.

Ron Gettelfinger, president of the United Auto Workers, will be the speaker Thursday, April 15, at the next monthly IMPA meeting. Gettelfinger, who retires this spring, has seen a lot of changes within the industry since attaining the presidency in 2002, but nothing to compare to the events of the last two years.

The program begins with a noon reception followed by Gettelfinger’s presentation and a question-and-answer period. The 3 West Club, 3 West 51st Street in New York will, as usual, be the venue. Tickets are $35 for members, $45 for others.
