It would not be unusual for Joseph L. Seymour, Managing Director, Operational Excellence, to attend the Southeastern Employment and Training Association (SETA) 2023 Spring Conference, for which KRA is a Sponsor and Exhibitor, March 12-15, at The Peabody Memphis.
What is unusual is that he—a much sought-after, industry-conference speaker, video producer, and workshop facilitator since 2010—will not be presenting, because as SETA’s 1st Vice-President and Chair, Program Planning Committee, he will be hosting the event along with Amy Ezell, SETA’s Tennessee Representative.
More than 425 registrants will have the opportunity to capitalize on a dynamic program of workshops, benefitting from the expertise of our presenters, including Jonathan Overall, KRA Director of Workforce Operations, who will facilitate Economic Driven Resiliency in the Post-Pandemic Era: How to Effectively Engage and Support Business on March 13th, 2pm-3pm CST.
Mr. Seymour reported, “This is the beginning of our 50th Anniversary, and at the Gala Celebration on March 14th, we will honor Past Presidents, including Don Scott, former KRA Vice President, focusing on our 2023 theme, ‘Honoring the Past, Celebrating the Present, and Visioning the Future’.
“It has been my pleasure to be engaged with SETA for the last 6 years. As a Workshop Presenter, then as an appointed Board Member, and as the next President, I will continue my mission to modernize the association and its offerings to our members, expand its reach beyond the eight core Southeastern states, and help SETA continue to be a premier workforce association in the industry.
“My thanks to Knowlton R. Atterbeary, KRA President & CEO and Patrick Boxall, KRA Executive Vice President & Chief Strategy Officer, both of whom will be in attendance, and all other members of the Senior Leadership Team for continuing to encourage and support me in my relationship with SETA.”
