92 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S

92 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK NFDA - 10842 Noel Street #107, Los Alamitos CA 90720 • Tel: 1-877-487-6332 • Email: nfda@nfda-fastener.org • www.nfda-fastener.org NATIONAL FASTENERS DISTRIBUTORS ASSOCIATION NFDA 2013 ANNUAL MEETING PROMISES EDUCATION YOU CAN USE “Connecting for Tomorrow” is the theme for the NFDA 2013 Annual Meeting, which will take place June 12-13 at the Intercontinental Hotel in Rosemont, Illinois, immediately after the conclusion of Fastener Tech ’13. Our planning team of Sara Mallo, Bob Luzum, and Jim Lindrup has developed a winning combination of relevant educational content and fun events. To kick off the conference on Wednesday afternoon, June 12, NFDA brings back the insights of the Institute for Trend Research economists, with a timely economic update by Jeffrey Dietrich. One of the best benefits of NFDA membership is the detailed commentary on the state of the U.S. economy by the ITR team, through quarterly reports (emailed to all members and archived in the online library) and annual presentations at NFDA meetings. We couldn’t pass up this opportunity to again bring you the insights of the Institute for Trend Research, the on economic trends forecaster with a 94.7% accuracy rate and 60 years of correct calls. That evening we’re taking everyone to dinner at nearby Carlucci’s, one of Chicago’s most celebrated Italian restaurants. Fresh from Italy’s rolling countryside, the seasonal flavors at Carlucci’s are as rich as the land itself. And, who knows, there could be an after party at the newly opened Park at Rosemont. The conference’s second day will kick off with a provocative panel discussion, “Manufacturers are from Mars, Distributors are from Venus.” Focusing on the relationship between fastener manufacturers and fastener distributors, the panel will feature insights from Gary Huck (Wurth Industry Group), David Monti (Fall River Manufacturing), Todd Sider (Century Fasteners), and Tammy Work (A Raymond Tinnerman). Eric Dudas of www.fastenersclearinghouse.com and Fully Threaded Radio will be the panel moderator. Next up on the conference program for June 13 will be an update on the impact of the Affordable Care Act on business, presented by a representative of the National Federation of Independent Business. To conclude the educational portion of the conference, NFDA is proud to present Dr. Geoff Smart, the New York Times best-selling author, who offers a ground-breaking solution to your number one problem: hiring mistakes. He will show you: • A simple four-step method for hiring the right people, with a 90% success rate. • Hot to save .5M by avoiding a single hiring mistake. • Advice given in an unprecedented number of exclusive interviews with more than 20 billionaires and 60 CEOs, investors and other thought-leaders • The secrets of success for more than 300 CEOs who participated in a University of Chicago study. And, if that’s not enough, the conference will conclude with two optional outings to downtown Chicago. You can explore Navy Pier on your own, or you can enjoy dinner and a play (we’ve reserved 50 tickets for The Book of Mormon). So, come to Rosemont this June for Fastener Tech ’13 and stay for the NFDA Annual Meeting. Executive Summit One of the intangible yet valuable benefits of NFDA membership is learning from one’s peers. And, that’s the focus of the NFDA 2013 Executive Summit, November 5-7 at the Ritz-Carlton Kapalua, on the island of Maui.
