American Sports Builders technical meeting set for Nov 30 in Orlando
This year’s meeting might just be the best we’ve ever offered. Just consider…
· Our keynote speaker: Steve Gilliland will teach us to “Enjoy the Ride.” A self-made multi-millionaire who built his own company from the ground up, Gilliland knows what it takes to be successful, and will explain how to learn more about your company, your industry, your customer and yourself and to always be a leader. His motto is straightforward: “If you take care of people, the business will follow.” He’ll discuss facing conflicting demands in an unforgiving business environment, and show how he — and everyone — can keep things together both personally and professionally.
· The USTA Facility Assistance Team will host a session to discuss the changes to the rules of tennis in 2012, how those rules impact facilities and hear how they can help grow your business. Learn how to keep the infrastructure of the sport healthy by avoiding the most common mistakes seen during bidding and building.
· Trade Show: ASBA’s trade show is the place to be to find the newest products and services in the industry, and to revisit longtime industry standards. Our first event of the meeting is always our Opening Reception at the trade show, and it’s easily our most popular for good reason.
· ASBA’s Technical Meeting program has specific tracks of programming dedicated to tennis, track, fields, indoor facilities and general business topics. No matter what your company does, or what role you play in it, there’s valuable information here for you at this meeting. Check our website for a full copy of the agenda for the meeting.
· Division Meetings: What’s going on in the tennis industry, and how is ASBA responding? What do field builders need to know about industry concerns, rule changes and more? Each division of the Association (Tennis, Track, Fields, Indoor and/Design Professional) serves a different segment of the membership, and is responsible for specific projects, publications, tasks and more. Learn about the projects, issues and goals of your division. Find out how you can get involved, share your ideas and find out what’s ahead.
This meeting is simply filled with opportunity! There will be opportunities to increase your company’s exposure by exhibiting and/or by acting as a sponsor. (See the article elsewhere in this issue). You can also have the chance to compete with your colleagues in ASBA’s golf and tennis outings, find out who scored big wins in ASBA’s awards program and much more. The Technical Meeting is beneficial to individuals in all segments of the industry. The American Sports Builders Association is an approved provider of continuing education programs to the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) through its Landscape Architecture Continuing Education System (LACES).
