I guess I need my hand held.
That's what I do best! :laughing:
We get together for a weekly Teleconference. Sometimes we have specific problems to work through, sometimes we just discuss the industry and our day to day. It's an excellent way to network and bounce ideas off of people who are in a similar situation.
Right now it's on hold because we are all waiting for the busy season to end, but when we pick it up again we will be continuing a marketing workshop, then moving on to a Commercial maintenance workshop.
Mark Havens leads the group for most of the calls. They are once a week, every other week in the summer for about two hours.
I have been doing it for about a year now and I look forward to every week. We all have become good friends as well. We even call each other during the week to talk about specific issues and random things.
We have also been trying to plan a face to face meeting to work through NAPP's "In Gear Business Management Series" but one of the members, Sean Kennedy, just had a baby (Congrats Sean!) so that may be far in the future.
