Leadership Letter: You’re invited! The 2005 Management Conference is November 10-13!
September 1st, 2005

September-October 2005

Traditionally, the CTDA Management Conference has always been a great time and place to get inspired, motivated, and informed at educational seminars planned to update us on our industry and the ever-changing world of business. It also offers a wonderful opportunity to network with industry peers and see how they do things at their own businesses.

The 2005 Management Conference is scheduled for November 10-13 at Rancho Las Palmas in Rancho Mirage, California. I hope you’re planning to attend.

Personally, I have always found the Management Conference to be one of the best benefits of CTDA membership. I always learn something to take back to my business. This will be especially true in 2005.

The conference kicks off on November 10th with futurist Jim Carroll on “Coping with Ketchup: How to Adapt to a World of Constant Change.”

The 2005 schedule also includes a two-part session on mold. Could this be the new asbestos? Part I will consider what mold is and is not, the latest technology available to prevent growth, and what you can do during installation to stop it before it becomes an expensive problem. Part II will discuss the ramifications of mold for homeowners, contractors, distributors, and the courts. Get an update on the most recent insurance issues and what you can do to avoid potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars, maybe more, in mold claims.

I especially enjoy the Distributor Forum, networking, sharing ideas and experiences with fellow distributors is always a good time and beneficial for all of us attending. Distributors gather to discuss subjects primarily of exclusive nature to distributors. It is a time to share your successes and your failures and take home a few new ideas to implement. This year’s session will take place immediately before the Friday morning business session with two topics selected for discussion in roundtable groups and results presented to the whole. (Attendees won’t miss any of the other planned business or recreation events!) Topics will be chosen by participants prior to the conference.

Elsewhere, the schedule is just as rewarding:

• Expect a big motivational bounce from marketing expert Jim Feldman on “Shift Happens! Survival Skills,” Mac Fulfer on “Every Face Tells a Story.”

• Eric Chester will help you understand, manage and motivate “Generation Why.”

• Al Bates will present his Company Performance Report.

In addition to these programs, CTDA will be welcoming two more inductees into the CTDA Hall of Fame. There will be more time for informal networking on the golf course and at informal special events.

The CTDA Management Conference is your opportunity to invest in the growth and profitability of your business and one of the most rewarding benefits of CTDA membership.

Many of you are already registered for this important event, but if you aren’t yet, please clear your calendar and plan to join us.

I look forward to seeing you there!

Cindy Bell
CTDA President
