2018 is already off to an amazing start. I’m anticipating that it will be a year of records for ARM.
The webinars for the Operator Training program are attracting more attendees than we have ever seen with previous webinars. And the recordings of these webinars are drawing record-setting visitors to the member-benefit section of our website. If you haven’t participated in these live free webinars, it is not too late to get involved. And if you haven’t yet logged in to review the recordings, I would encourage you to do so.
The Spring Executive Forum in Orlando drew a record number of attendees (as well as a record number of family members). The feedback from the attendees has been supremely favorable. We had presentations from experts in workforce development, alternative staffing solutions, leadership development, and effective career development & incentive programs. If you missed it, you really missed out!
I’m confident this momentum is going to continue to build throughout the year. The regional meetings we have planned in Wisconsin (May 15), California (June 13), and South Carolina (June 19) will provide great education and networking opportunities. This October, our Annual Meeting will return to Montreal, where we held one of our best-received meetings. I’m looking forward to this meeting breaking records as well.
The excitement among ARM members is contagious. The value of membership is growing every month as we add new online training to our website and we focus our meetings to directly address the needs of rotomolders. We hope you’ll join us as we continue to set new ARM records this year.
