The 2nd Tri-annual Business Forum provided an opportunity for business owners and managers to learn about SWOTT analysis, and also share their accomplishments and challenges with each other.  If you haven't had a chance to read your April issue of PMP magazine, take a look at speaker Pete Schopen's article he wrote post January event about how members of our industry were able to speak freely with each other without worrying about "the competition".  Our Forums provide this opportunity and those in attendance have found it very valuable.

We'd like to thank sponsors Ameripride Services, Briostack, Cimex K9, Hilti, MGK, Nisus, Target Specialty Products, Trainual, Univar, Syngenta and speakers Pete Schopen and Chris Ronzoni. The final of the series is scheduled for October 30th. Watch you inbox for more information later this summer.
We had a great turn out and beautiful day for our 6th annual Bugs N Balls golf tournament!  Nearly 80 golfers hit the links at Kierland Golf Resort in Scottsdale on a gorgeous Friday morning in May. Competition was tight among the top golfers which resulted in a tie for the top honors.  A fun day was had by all, and we were able to raise a significant amount of money for YOUR industry defense fund. Here are a few photos, the rest can be viewed on our website HERE.
