60 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK NATIONAL FASTENER DISTRIBUTORS ASSOCIATION 3020 Old Ranch Parkway #300, Seal Beach CA 90740 TEL 562-799-5509 FAX 562-684-0695 EMAIL WEB VIRTUAL EXECUTIVE SALES PLANNING SESSIONS ® DECEMBER 1-2, 2020 by Vickie Lester One of the consequences of COVID was that we couldn’t meet in Minneapolis this summer for NFDA’s acclaimed Executive Sales Planning Sessions® (ESPS®). Just in time for year-end budgeting, we will provide you with the opportunity to meet with suppliers in a secure virtual format December 1-2. So what is ESPS®? Think of a combination of a trade show and speed dating. You’ll have timed 25-minute appointments in a private virtual setting to meet with current suppliers and prospective ones. You’ll be able to set up appointments on an online platform. Most NFDA members feel that ESPS® is one of the best services the association provides. Learn more at Young Fastener Professionals Plans Three Virtual Events YFP’s Virtual Speed Networking event in August was a blast. More than 50 people participated, and the feedback is that they want more of them and more time in the segments! On October 15 YPF will present a webinar on ASSOCIATION ARTICLE “Resources for Professional Development.” There are lots of programs for fastener technology and business issues, but where do you go to learn skills to help you do your job and grow into the next level? Visit for details. And, stay tuned for a fun virtual social event on December 3, YFP-style! Put a Little Zip in Your Zoom Yet another videoconference? Yawn.
