NTPDA Gets Bold!
You! Yes, We're Talking to You!

A Troubling Thought

In the most recent edition of The NTPDA Bulletin our National Tractor Parts Dealer FuneralAssociation president, Jeff Griggs, lamented the fact that our organization has tried, but so far has been unsuccessful, in breathing life into our association:

"Are we doomed as an organization? Is it inevitable that we are headed toward just simply fading away over time?  I've worked with the premise that the answer to both of these questions is NO! But now I'm beginning to second guess myself."

It's one thing to have those concerns privately but to make it public shows each of us, who love what this organization has given us, how critical it is that we act.

Your Board of Directors believes that adding value is the only thing that will save our association and that's why it has evaluated and reevaluated our Annual Trade Show and Meeting.  We'll gather in Kansas City in January for a revival or a wake. Your choice.

Frankly, we see it as a revival. 

In the coming weeks you'll be receiving more information on what value added items we'll be taking to Kansas City.  Then, you can judge if learning and building more sales for your business is going to be worth the effort.

We think it will be and that you will be surprised!

In the meantime, feel free to share your thoughts/ideas here or with an email.
