Joe Truncale talks about NAPL's regional road shows
Published on April 6, 2010
Hi, I'm Joe Truncale, President and CEO of NAPL and I'm excited to announce a new initiative for NAPL members starting early this year. And it's the NAPL Roadshows and what we'll be doing is visiting dozens of cities all around the country, bringing our message, our information, our advice, and the knowledge that we've gained directly to you, our members, in all areas of the country.
The idea is very simple: two, two-and-a-half programs, gets you in early, gets you on your way by late morning so you can get on with your busy day. In those sessions we'll be bringing you the latest information: updates, research reports about the state of the economy, the state of our industry. We'll also be sharing with you tools that we've developed that will help you develop your business to its biggest and best future.
There will planning information, information about markets, how to proceed, hiring information, everything you need to start a plan of your own for your business' best future. And these will be coming to you locally, which makes the affordable and accessible for all members, everywhere.
So watch for the announcement coming soon and the NAPL Roadshow coming early this year from NAPL or go to NAPL.org for more information.
