While I have attended many memorable meetings and events during my years of involvement with ASA, I can honestly say some of the most rewarding times have been visits to Washington, D.C., to meet with members of Congress on behalf of ASA and our industry.
Joining FOX NFL’s Jimmy Johnson on the list of confirmed speakers for NetworkASA 2014 is former Navy Seal Robert O’Neill. O’Neill is one of the most highly decorated combat veterans of our time.
There are more than 70,000 individuals building great careers in the PHCP and PVF industry. In his acceptance speech after becoming 2013 ASA president, Jeff Pope (F.W. Webb) challenged the American Supply Association to implement a program that would attract the next generation of our industry’s employees.
In last month’s issue, a panel of leading PHCP executives made its feelings known on a variety of issues related to government regulation and how the current political climate is affecting the industry. In the second of this two-part series, the group delves into issues related to the everyday workings of its companies, including staff growth, e-commerce and attracting young talent into the industry.
Now more than ever, legislative and regulatory decisions play a major role in the way PHCP and PVF distributors conduct business. A blue-chip panel of distributors had plenty to say about that and many other hot-button topics during an exclusive roundtable interview conducted by Supply House Times and the American Supply Association during NetworkASA 2013 at the Renaissance Marriott DC Downtown Hotel in Washington.
The American Supply Association recently announced two-time Super Bowl-champion coach and current “Fox NFL Sunday” studio analyst Jimmy Johnson will be a speaker at the A. O. Smith Future Trends Luncheon as part of NetworkASA 2014 to be held Sept. 9-11 at the Bellagio in Las Vegas.
Coming off a very successful NetworkASA 2013 – One Industry, One Voice, One Future in Washington, D.C., this past October, ASA has already started planning for the 2014 event to be held at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, Sept. 9-11.
ASA moves into 2014 coming off a year that was one of its strongest ever. ASA reached net membership growth for the second consecutive year in 2013, a milestone that hadn’t previously been reached in decades.
What an honor and a privilege it is to have been asked to serve as 2014 http://www.asa.net ASA president. My father, Herb Strong Jr., served as ASA president in 1996 and I am very proud to follow his lead. I also am very proud to take ASA into 2014 after two consecutive years of net membership growth, a milestone we previously had not reached in decades.
I’m writing this letter as I reflect upon NetworkASA 2013 in Washington, D.C., in October. I can tell those who didn’t make it there that they missed a memorable time.
