Executive Conference News

The Executive Conference Has Been Postponed

The 2019 Executive Conference, originally scheduled for January 14 – 17, has been postponed.  While it was a difficult decision, not made in haste, the NMDA Executive Committee felt it was the right thing to do.  At this time a new date has not been set but please watch your Inbox for further information.

Since we do not anticipate scheduling before year-end we have returned and/or issued refund checks to all who have paid.  Hotel forms, with credit card information, have been shredded.

If you have any questions about the event, or the decision, please contact Nancy or a member of the Board.

General Information

The NMDA Executive Conference is a forum for owners, chief executives and general/sales/marketing managers of both wholesale distributors and manufacturers to discuss issues pertinent to their business relationships today and into the 21st century. The name, Executive Conference, means just that. This is NOT a purchasing event.

One of the best ideas that several distributors have implemented for these meetings is they take the criteria for the 2018 Supplier of the Year Ballot and review or rate all of their suppliers. They then spend their meeting going over the results.  This can be a real help to both parties in improving the relationship and building better businesses for both parties.
