NSCA Brings Best Practices to You
Jun 7, 2013 3:47 PM
NSCA is introducing a “Best Practices Conference (BPC)” series featuring business training, networking and manufacturer training designed for mid-level managers. The first BPC conference will take place Sept. 30 – Oct. 1, in Dallas.
NSCA’s Business & Leadership Conference witnessed several years of growth and the executives that attend BLC requested we bring a more tactical, hands-on event for their management teams. BPC will provide four distinct tracks based on finance, operations, sales, and project management. With time spent away from the office becoming a concern, NSCA developed the BPC to bring more specific business training to its members in a one-and-a-half day event. NSCA will host four BPC events in the fall of 2013, providing multiple opportunities for integrators to attend. The conference workshops, taught by trusted industry experts, focus on business skills that will help integration firms improve efficiencies and increase profits.
Both the BPC and the BLC will be industry specific events focused on business skills and management training.
BPC will also feature two unique components including manufacturer training and a roundtable discussion with industry peers. The roundtable provides a perfect opportunity to have back-and-forth conversations on issues affecting integrators in specific regions and how NSCA can continue to provide information and solutions that will help integrators create a sustainable, profitable business.
“Systems integrators are positioning their businesses to strengthen their relevance with their clients,” said Ingolf deJong, President of General Communications and the NSCA Board of Directors. “There is no better way to stay ahead of the curve than by applying tactical information that NSCA provides its membership through its research, training, benchmarking and policy work. During the roundtable discussions of these BPCs the NSCA team will focus on policy issues and other items that affect the real cost of doing business.”
The sessions and presenters have all been chosen by systems integrators, proving the value of the conference. Upcoming BPCs will be held:
- September 30 - October 1: Dallas, TX
- October 17 - 18: Irvine, CA
- November 7 - 8: Foxwood, CT
- November 18 - 19: Chicago, IL
“The industry has asked us for years to bring training to them on a regional basis,” said Chuck Wilson, NSCA executive director. “We are combining business skills with our best components of the Business & Leadership Conference – the networking and shared industry experiences – to mid-level managers throughout the country. Our goal is to provide an affordable and accessible event designed specifically for those who aren’t able to get to the BLC.”
The regional BPC events will be a win-win for the industry. It’s clear that integrators need to think beyond technical training and understand business concepts and strategies in order to advance their company. Manufacturers will join these conferences to provide needed application training, while at the same time helping their dealers discover the value in acquiring business skills in one easy, convenient, affordable event throughout the country. This combination is a profitable concept in today’s fierce business world.
Registration for the one-and-a-half day event is just $299 for NSCA members and $399 for non-members. Registration includes manufacturer training, networking events, and all courses.
