By all accounts you had a great time and you learned so very much. We call that adding value to your membership. But don't just take our word for it. Here is what some of our members had to say about #NTPDA17 in San Antonio:
Terri Stevens - Tractor Barn
"I have to tell you it was fantastic. Of course I love seeing everybody but what was so good for me and our company was some of the new displays in the trade show. Because we are a Mahindra dealer it was great to meet a new parts supplier. That made the trip worthwhile for me. The training was also excellent. Mel and his ideas about hiring the right employee first was something I really needed to hear. And, because I need help, Crystal and her training on social media was excellent. You know, I really wish we could have had even more training and education because that's what we really need."
Mike Winter - Worthington Tractor Parts
"We took hard goods for the trade show and it was excellent. Our goal in going to the NTPDA Annual Meeting & Trade Show is doing business and I can tell you we did a pot full of business. If only I had been feeling better it would have been off the charts. But, spending a day or two down with a lousy cold and maybe the flu took me out. Next year!"
Phyllis Cox - NTPDA
"Time, I wish we had more time. DJ was so very entertaining, Mel kept everyone involved and Crystal had lots of information about social media especially LinkedIn. One hour just wasn't enough for her to cover, in detail, all the things our members wanted to hear. Of course the social events were great but I too, like Mike, came down with a nasty cold. Drat!"
Linda Benton - Southeast Tractor Parts
She gave us a one word response when we asked. "#1 Fellowship!" We'll take it!
Dan Waters - Waters Tractor
"Great time at the NTPDA with a great group of people. And of course a special thank you to Atlantic!"
Jeff Griggs - All States Ag Parts
"I think the training was outstanding and the piece on hiring was so valuable to us that we started to implement some of those items as soon as we returned. The entire event was well worth our time and effort."
So, how did we do? As always we're interested. You can hook up with NTPDA on Facebook here and our Twitter Stream is @NTPDA!
Thanks for reading and we look forward to hearing more from you!
