Be Here Before You Know It

The days go by quickly and so too does your opportunity to same some money on your NTPDA Annual Conference and Trade Show registration. November 30th is the first cut off...but if you get in yet today you'll save $75 per person! Here is a link to the registration forms!

So a quick rundown of the agenda for our San Antonio experience is in order: You will be staying in the beautiful San Antonio Riverwalk Hotel by Wyndham. It is very, very nice and we've arranged for special pricing for our event. Go ahead...have a peek at our accommodations. 

Charlie-wants-a-burger


Wednesday January 18, 2017
- Our vendors have setup time at the Fiesta Pavilion. Then we'll hold an early arrival party at Charlie Wants a Burger (we know...it's a little different but, hey...so are we!) we'll have music with Jennifer Westwood and the Handsome Devils and more.  Loads of fun for our early birds this is something you will NOT want to miss!

San Antonio SpeakersThursday January 19, 2017 - After breakfast our presenter DJ Harrington will do a "Check Up from the Neck Up". It's a look at your sales and business model. Then, after a break Mel Kleiman will talk about when you hire the right people your management process is much easier. After lunch Crystal Washington will join us to talk about the digital transformation of sales/marketing and how that has impacted our industry. Our "Welcome to San Antonio" reception is that evening starting at 5pm. We'll also be giving our regular members the opportunity to experience our Trade Show.

Friday January 20, 2017 - The Trade Show Floor opens at 9am and we'll have some time to visit in the NTPDA Marketplace.  The annual meeting and election of officers takes place at 11am. Lunch will, again, be served on the Trade Show Floor so we'll have even more time to spend with our vendors. Our Trade Show closes at 4pm and then it's time to get ready for our dinner with entertainment by the Jackie Myers Band.

We're looking forward to seeing each of you in January. Don't forget, register today!!  Our event in San Antonio promises to be fun, educational and a great opportunity to re-connect with all of your NTPDA friends! 

 


It's Like Family

One of the reasons the National Tractor Parts Dealer Association continues to grow is because members feel like family. Sure we do business with each other Family-word-images-dw301_familyand yes, we are sometimes in competition but at the end of the day we really care about each other.

Maybe that's because NTPDA was started by small business people who knew and respected each other. And while today there may be some really large companies who are members of our group the vast majority of Regular Members are still represented by small business people. 

It's Thanksgiving Week in the U.S. and we would be remiss if we didn't wish all our American Members a Happy Thanksgiving. And, please know that if you are based in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India and any number of nations where our members are located we are thankful for you and your people. 

May you all enjoy some quality family time and thank you for being a member of our larger family...
