Dear BBIA Members,
I would like to start by thanking you all for giving me the opportunity to serve as President of the BBIA. It is such an honor to hold this position and as members, I hope you will feel I served you and our industry well. This has truly been one of my most rewarding and educational experiences.
In the past few years, we have certainly been on a roll with incredible convention destinations and I hope to continue the streak as I welcome you to join us for our 2014 Convention. Our convention chairman, David Hickman, did a wonderful job selecting such a nice property. Having visited this location myself, I will tell you that I think it is a wonderful place to be inspired, share information, and create even more memorable times with one another.
This is my seventh year as a member of the Board and I am so appreciative of all those that I have been lucky enough to work with over the years. I would especially like to extend my gratitude to the current board; without the hard work of this team, we would not have been so successful in furthering the goals of our organization. Their dedication and reliability have been great assets to myself as President as well as the BBIA as a whole. I would also like to recognize Bill Supper for his unwavering support and guidance.
When we come together with each of our individual strengths, we create the greatest opportunity of success for our industry. With this in mind, I hope you enjoy our 2014 BBIA Convention and I can’t wait to see you there!
