This week NTPDA (National Tractor Parts Dealer Association) president Scott Schelling called together a group of members to reignite the NTPDA Membership Committee. The group is tasked with working on new and innovative ways to improve our membership numbers while offering real value in, not only, our Annual Meeting and Trade Show but also our summer gathering.
The Membership Committee is made up of:
- Scott Schelling - Rock Valley Tractor Parts
- Liz Fawcett - Fawcett Tractor Supply
- Tray Russell - Russells Tractor Parts
- Michael Libbie - Insight Advertising, Marketing & Communications
- Steven Haas - DLS Worldwide
- Brandi Erickson - Steiner Tractor
- Shannon Sabo-Weber - Steiner Tractor
The meeting looked at various ways in which to offer increase value to our members, which assists in retention, and the active recruitment of new members.
While we'll detail changes and plans here one of the first things the group decided to accomplish was to re-name the Summer Board Meeting. The reason is that many members figure the meeting is only for the Board of Directors. That's not the case. So, we're rebranding the event as The Summer Smash. Our goal is to invite the Board and our Regular and Associate Members to an event that is packed with information, planning and fun...as the name suggests. As soon as our plans are more clear we'll be sending out some schedule information.
Please know that this Membership Committee is committed to creating and building a better National Tractor Parts Dealer Association and we look forward to this future.
Thanks for reading and more to come!
