As the 2013 NAHAD Annual Meeting & Convention wraps up with the closing reception, here is a reflection from an observer. This is an important meeting for both distributors and manufacturers of hose and accesories because of the connections.
I don't necessarily mean the hose connections but the people connections. One of the reasons that the NAHAD organization is so successful is because they realize this truth. People do business with other people. Manufacturers are represented by people who sell their products through distributors who are represented by people and they sell to customers who are people.
The four days of the NAHAD Annual Convention & Meeting are focused on those connections starting with the opening reception through the networking courses and excursions, the hospitality night, and culminating in the closing reception. NAHAD is about people.
Once again, I congratulate NAHAD for the excellent job that Joe Thompson and his staff has done to conduct this organization and this Annual Meeting & Convention to optimize the connections between individuals to optimize the hose and accessory industry. We are proud to be members of NAHAD.
