The Annual Furniture Rep's Dinner is Next Friday...Are You Coming????
Recently I was honored by being elected the 74th President of the international Home Furnishing Representative's Association. I appreciate the confidence my fellow reps and the Association has in me leading the organization this next year.
I am very fortunate to have an outstanding group of guys working with me on the Executive Board as well as two incredible ladies running IHFRA. Next Friday evening at the Presidential Gala, I'll introduce you to all these fine people who are working hard to make IHFRA a tremendous membership for all reps.
But here's my concern...Some people I know would normally come to this dinner have not yet registered. The good news is there is still time. It is open to anyone in the industry, and we actually have members that are in the industry but not a rep (Retailers, suppliers, factories and interior designers for example).
In order to encourage attendance I called Kathy Parks our administrator and told her to look around for special bribes I could offer to anyone who has not yet signed up but would like to. Every reservation made this last week will result in a FREE BONUS from the list of goodies below. First come first serve so make a reservation to the Presidential Gala today by emailing Jennifer Sova at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Remember, IHFRA is a big budget operation so the wonderful enticements to join us next week might not be quite as exciting as say a new car or tickets to a Jimmy Buffett concert. But remember, the real benefit of making a reservation to the Furniture Gala is to be able to network and associate with some of the most knowledgeable professionals in the industry. Make your reservation today and choose from the following:
9 Red Roof drink koozies
1 green very old Tri-State coffee mug
1 broken Keurig coffee maker
4 plastic ice cube trays
Old HP printer with cartridges
5 October 2011 Market Resource Guides
Various cords & cables we have no idea what they go to
And if those aren't good enough I'll give you an autographed copy of my book "Secrets of Peak Performers". You see I am pulling out all the stops so I make sure that you consider attending this IHFRA Presidential Gala event.
Seriously though, we're going to have a great year, and I'll tell you all about it next week at the Presidential Gala on Friday evening, April 20. Cocktails start at 6 PM, Dinner at 7 PM on the 11th floor of IHFC in the Ballroom. For more information or to make a registration and claim one of the fabulous bonuses, please contact Jennifer Sova at email@example.com .
Hope to see you there,
