I just got my copy of The Bulletin and that caused me to THINK, really THINK about why in the world I ever joined the National Tractor Parts Dealer Association. And, it was one word:
While that may have been my motivating factor years ago the reason I stay connected
to NTPDA today is more complex. Sure, business is part of it and we're grateful to have been the agency of record for NTPDA but...it's more.
You see, I really LIKE the people that belong to this organization. From the staff, who has always been wonderful to me and our crew, to the Board who changes yet stays committed to the efforts of us all, to the Members who fight like hell on a daily basis to build a life for themselves and their families and my fellow Associate Members who, like me, originally joined to "do business".
I have become friends, true friends, with so many of you. We have shared life and death struggles, happy and tearful moments and a drink or three and it has been rewarding and added to my quality of life.
So, that's why I joined NTPDA and why I'm staying. How about you?
One more thing? I look forward to seeing you in Memphis next year and here is a place where you can register.
Thanks for reading!
