Letter From The ASA President - Own It!
Once again, NetworkASA is loaded with great educational opportunities.
Dear Industry Colleagues,
NetworkASA 2011 in Las Vegas was an all-out success in terms of offering participants phenomenal sessions and an abundance of opportunities to meet business leaders that just aren’t available at any other industry event.
If you were in attendance, you experienced a first-class industry gathering and know that this year’s event, NetworkASA 2012: Own It! – Your Company, Your Industry, Your Future, is definitely not-to-be-missed.
This year’s event will be held Oct. 17-20 at the Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek. The leadership at ASA has taken tremendous strides to ensure that our NetworkASA 2012 program is sure to surpass the excitement from last year. If you did not attend in 2011, please give us a try in 2012 and experience for yourself what the excitement is all about…it is just that good!
Attendance at NetworkASA allows participants to keep ahead of future trends, as evidenced by the compelling lineup of thought-provoking and dynamic headline speakers that have been part of the event over the last few years. This year’s speaker lineup is no exception, with powerhouse speakers such as Steve Forbes offering insight into business and political trends that will impact all of us. In addition to the powerful speaker lineup, NetworkASA 2012 will once again offer exclusive networking opportunities, allowing wholesalers “one-on-one” time with supplier partners.
These one-on-one opportunities are highlighted by the return of our Wholesaler and Vendor Conference Appointments. We understand the value of making time for dedicated appointments between manufacturers and distributors. This time is key in not only strengthening current partnerships, but also in creating new ones. This is your time, so Own It! Also to be featured again in 2012 are the IPD and Plumbing Division Open Houses, which are tailored to your specific industry segments so that you can meet without having to make separate arrangements.
Back by popular demand, we have again included great networking and idea-sharing events for your key employees through ASA’s Peer Networking Councils, which will be meeting at NetworkASA 2012 in Orlando. These include our CFO, Warehouse & Operations, Trainers and Showroom Managers Councils. These meetings are the perfect chance to pick the brains of industry thought-leaders in an informal atmosphere.
As business leaders, we all take tremendous responsibilities and work tirelessly every day to build stronger companies. Collectively, we also employ thousands of people. Through our hard work and success as business owners, we provide numerous opportunities for our employees to provide better lives for their families. Attending NetworkASA 2012 in Orlando will give you the edge to ensure your company remains strong and vibrant well into the future.
