Save The Date For 2018 Joint Summit

Tahoe Save The Date

Don GraweThanks for making the Nashville Summit another big success. From feedback I’ve heard, you should have had at least a couple take-aways to bring back to the office. How about Mike Rayburn’s “What ifs”? Or Chris Kuehl’s perspective on interest rates? Of course the UID sessions were strong again with Mike Marks and Don Buttrey. And several new faces to network with along with the old friends we so look forward to seeing each year.

A special thank you to our Associate members that continue to support us and their feedback at the Associates lunch. We have renewed commitments of support for the Web Technical Seminars and the Spring Tech event that we as Distributor members are missing out on if we don’t take advantage of the offerings. Don’t forget Virtual ISD that was rolled out at the business meeting. Finally, what a finale! The concluding Gala dinner and entertainment helping celebrate our 25th anniversary was wonderful and if you missed Mike Rayburn’s closing keynote, you missed an amazing guitar performance – Oh, and his message was thought provoking too. As a guitar player many years ago, my jaw was on the floor watching him.

Next stop – Lake Tahoe next September. Mark your calendars now. We have a lot of momentum coming out of Nashville. Let’s have a great 12 months until we gather again.
Thanks for your support of your ISD.

We had another EXCELLENT Spring Tech event April 24-25 with about 20 attendees, 10 presenters (3 of whom are on the ISD Board), and much of the Board.  A huge THANK YOU to SEPCO for an outstanding job as hosts.  Check out some of our pictures!  And here’s what some of the attendees said:


“I wasn't sure if coming to the Tech event a second year in a row would be worth it, but I learned as much this year as I did last year.  It just keeps getting better.”

“It was my first time going to the ISD meeting.  I found it very informative and will recommend it to others.”
