92 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK NORTH COAST FASTENER ASSOCIATION 7737 Ellington Place, Mentor, OH 44060 TEL 440-975-9503 FAX 440-350-1676 EMAIL WEB NCFA ANNUAL DISTRIBUTOR SOCIAL CELEBRATES ITS 10th YEAR!! by Marty Nolan, NCFA Trustee For the tenth straight year, the sun shined bright on the NCFA Distributor Social. Over 200 Distributors and Suppliers gathered in Northeast Ohio for this premier networking event. If you don’t know about the NCFA Distributor Social, you need to! The NCFA Distributor Social is a networking event where suppliers and distributor get to spend time together networking in a casual atmosphere. The day started out with Midwest Fastener Association hosting a Basic Print Reading Class instructed by Mike Henry. We thank MWFA for offering this class to our members and Distributor Social attendees. Later in the afternoon, Kirk Zehnder from Earnest Machine hosted a presentation on “Maximizing the Benefits of the Changing Business Culture.” They also supplied ice cold beer and pop to presentation attendees. To top it off, Earnest Machine graciously donated ,000 to the NCFA Scholarship Fund. A huge “thank you “ to Earnest for all of their support! Directly after the Earnest presentation, it was time for the Distributor Social to begin. Guests headed downstairs to enjoy free drinks, appetizers and industry friends. We were so fortunate again this year to have beautiful weather for this event. Cleveland weather in May can be very unpredictable. The nice weather gave guests the opportunity to enjoy the attached outdoor patio and some delicious ice cream donated by Ventura Industrial Products. They offered a fully stocked ice cream cart for guests to enjoy. Visitors from multiple states come to Cleveland for the NCFA Distributor Social and it continues to attract people from every level of management and a diverse mix of other positions. Not only is it a great place for suppliers to visit with distributor personnel from every level, its offers a much more affordable option than a table-top show. The supplier sponsorship cost gives the opportunity to distributors to attend the NCFA Distributor Social for free!! It truly is a win-win for everyone. The NCFA recognized this event would not be possible without the support of our supplier sponsors. Many of the suppliers also pay an additional sponsorship cost to cover a portion of the bar tab for the evening! Thank you to our suppliers for continuing to support the event year after year! Thank you to everyone who attended and supported this year’s NCFA Distributor Social! Mark your calendars for a few of our upcoming events: July 12th Night at the Ballpark Cleveland Indians vs. New York Yankees September 6th NCFA Screw Open Golf Outing ASSOCIATION ARTICLE NORTH COAST FASTENER ASSOCIATION
