SPRING FORUM NOW ON! April 5-7, 2006

Savannah, Georgia is the new site selected by the ASA Young Executives Division for their Annual Spring Forum, which will be held April 5-7, 2006. The previous site

selected by the Division (Biloxi, MS) was very unfortunately devastated by Hurricane Katrina, necessitating the move.

You're Invited!

Everyone is invited to attend this outstanding educational and networking opportunity. Membership in the YE is not a prerequisite, and wholesalers, manufacturers and reps of all ages are expected to attend.

The two-part educational session will feature Brent R. Grover, a 25-year distribution industry veteran, consultant, writer, CPA and educator, whose presentation will be based on his 2004 best-selling NAW book, “More to the Bottom Line: Customer Profitability Tools for Distributors.” Grover is also the latest in industry experts to be named a Distinguished Fellow of the National Association of Wholesalers' Distribution Research & Education Foundation (DREF).

Grover, whose firm is Evergreen Consulting, LLC, will also moderate the roundtable discussion groups that are one of the most popular features of this annual event.

The Forum will be held at the Savannah Marriott Riverfront hotel in Savannah, Georgia, conveniently located right on the beautiful Savannah River, only a short walk away from the Historic District and the world-famous River Street.
