Our three region
conferences, Eastern, Western and South Central, are the most effective way to reach
out to your professional network and audience. The “old-fashioned” way of
shaking hands and sharing business plans is not lost in the electrical
distribution industry. We also know that in this economic climate, everyone is
still trimming travel budgets and being cautious about spending. NAED has
condensed this year’s region conferences to lessen your travel expenses and to
keep you out of the office for less time.
Among this year’s networking
opportunities are: All-Industry Networking Group, the Women in Industry
Luncheon, receptions, and the expanded B2B Booth Sessions. Topics covered
during the educational sessions will include: theft and fraud in the industry,
working with ESCO representatives, online training strategies, and technology.
Our keynote speaker, Charlie Cook, will give us an insider’s view of the
outcome of the 2010 mid-term elections and the rising heat of today’s political
climate. If you aren’t familiar with Cook, he is the editor and publisher of The Cook Political Report and a
political analyst for NBC News.
Think of it this way – while
you may not be handling the day-to-day business operations of the office while
you are at a region conference; you are definitely still handling business.
These are networking and educational opportunities that you will never be able
to take advantage of by sitting in the office. Rest assured you will receive
quite a return on your investment.
Registration is now open for the Eastern Region Conference. The conference will take place November 8-10 at the Omni
Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate in Orlando, Florida. If you live in one of our
other regions, be sure to mark your calendars and plan to attend the Western or South Central Region Conference. The region
conferences are designed to fit the needs of NAED members, so make sure you
don’t miss out on all of the great benefits these conferences have to offer.
