Foley, CEO Howwww-Deeeeee! Grand Ole Opry icon, the late Minnie Pearl, would have wanted to give her signature greeting to the 4,912 STAFDA members who attended its November 10-12 Nashville Convention & Trade Show held in Music City. STAFDA’s recent meeting marked the largest attended Convention & Trade Show since 2007, when STAFDA was last in Nashville at the Opryland Hotel. The three-day meeting featured a well rounded mix of education, social events, and of course, the Trade Show. Workshop presenters covered relevant topics facing STAFDA members today: How to Market to Millennials (Jeff Butler); Women in Business & Career Strategies (JJ DiGeronimo); the Age of Global Tranformation (Peter Leyden); and How to Improve Employee Engagement (Don Yaeger). STAFDA Economist, Alan Beaulieu, led a standing-room only program on what the future holds for business conditions in the U.S., Canada, and globally. Two targeted sessions catered to specific business needs: Butler led a program on how to incorporate NexGens into leadership positions; and J Schneider addressed how smaller distributors can SHOW EVENT ARTICLE MUSIC CITY CENTER, NASHVILLE, TN compete with Amazon and other national distributorships. Big & Rich headlined STAFDA’s Opening event with a private, 90 minute concert at the Municipal Auditorium preceded by a party showcasing local Nashville talent worked in among the Musician’s Hall of Fame, highlighting music across all genres. David Goggins, former Navy SEAL, Army Ranger, and Air Force Tactical Air Controller turned ultra-marathoner, gave a powerful keynote speech during the General Session. Goggins spoke about his rough childhood and how he transformed his life to become an over-achiever. Since it was Veteran’s Day when he spoke, Goggins helped open the Trade Show along with other STAFDA veterans in attendance. CONTINUED ON PAGE 124
