At press time, the 2002 ASA Annual Convention, featuring the "Supply Chain Summit" was seeing a healthy pre-registration turnout. Hundreds of distributors, manufacturers and manufacturers reps are expected to be in attendance for the 2 1/2 day ASA Convention and ISH North America, which will take place immediately afterward.

ASA members and Associate Members were sent detailed information about the convention and ISH-NA during the past few months via email, fax and mail.

If you do not yet have registration information, act now to be sure to receive your badge by mail and secure a room in the ASA headquarters hotel, the Fairmont Royal York.

Distributors who join ASA this year will receive free registration to this year's convention (delegate plus spouse), a $590 value! See for details.

If you haven't already registered, what are you waiting for? Everyone who is anyone will be there, and the new format is exciting and maybe even a little controversial. Take a look at the line-up of speakers and industry guests and determine for yourself: Can you afford NOT to be there?
