Dear Mid-Atlantic N.A.M.E. Members:

It was just a few short weeks ago that your officers and directors met to recap our conference and to discuss ways that we can continue to grow membership and raise the bar on the quality of programs that we offer to our members. We also discussed opportunities to provide a better experience to those who visit our website whether it is to extrapolate important information or ideas or to simply upload tearsheets for our annual contest.

To briefly touch on membership, our board members will be targeting prospects over the next few weeks urging them to consider Mid-Atlantic N.A.M.E while promoting the 2016 Sales Management Conference to be held at the Downtown Marriott in Winston-Salem, NC. We have a great history and story to tell. Organizations such as ours depend on our membership for sustainability. If any of you want to step forward to help in this endeavor please reach out to me directly.

We also spent a great deal of time discussing program ideas and plans for the 2016 Conference. Make sure to mark your calendars for April 28 -30, 2016.  Shaun Fogarty, our program chair, is putting together an exciting conference that you will not want to miss. Stay tuned more details will be available in the next couple of months.

As always I enjoy hearing from our members. I welcome any thoughts, ideas or suggestions on what we can do to ensure that you get the most out of Mid-Atlantic.

Stay cool this summer!

Leslie
