Supply House Times on the Road

NetworkASA 2013 - Day 3

October 7, 2013

NetworkASA 2013 wrapped up here in Washington, D.C., but not before presenting a final action-packed day of activities.

Journalist and author George Will was the featured speaker at the Plumbing Industry Educational Forum & Breakfast sponsored by Kohler. Will provided a humorous take on the current political goings on while weaving in his love for baseball.

ASA’s Plumbing Division presented its Award of Excellence to First Supply’s Joe Poehling for his many years of dedicated service to the industry.

The wholesaler-vendor conference appointments were again a big hit. Wholesalers had the opportunity to meet with many vendors during the three-hour time period leading into lunch.

The convention wrapped up with the A. O. Smith Future Trends Luncheon. James Carville and Mary Matalin, dubbed America’s best-loved political couple, were the featured guest speakers and delivered an interesting presentation on a variety of different political-based subjects.

From this view, ASA put on a great convention. There was considerable buzz throughout the show about not only the quality of the convention, but the current momentum ASA has as an organization. I thought the convention was well-run and the speakers were strong from educational and entertainment standpoints.
Next year’s show will be in Las Vegas and will be held almost a month earlier (Sept. 9-11) than the 2013 version.

For more on NetworkASA 2013, I’ll have some videos from the show posted shortly in the video section of this website. We’ll also have much more in the November print edition of Supply House Times.
