I invite you to join me and our executive colleagues in Chicago for this year's North American International Powertrain Conference (NAIPC), to be held on September 17-19, 2014.

This year we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the NAIPC and looking back on the technology roadmaps we have discussed over the years, we have developed the theme of this year's conference to be: "Roadmaps for the Future: Challenging Conventional Wisdom."

This exclusive event for powertrain leaders covers perspectives from industry sectors around the globe, - including separate sessions on Powertrain Technology, Energy & Infrastructure and an interesting discussion exploring the Consumer Perspective. The conference will wrap up with an OEM Panel to reflect on how the industry and our conventional wisdom has changed, as well as discuss potentially disruptive factors in our industry's future. This event's program is developed by industry leaders who share your challenges and who, like you, want information and ideas that will result in breakthrough solutions. Held under the Chatham House Rule, the conference is a perfect venue for candid dialogue, stimulating debate and ample networking opportunities.

I hope you will join us and take advantage of everything this event has to offer.

I look forward to seeing you in Chicago this September.
