|The Professional Restylers Organization's (PRO) annual Long-Range Planning meeting is set for May 1, at the University of Northwestern Ohio in Lima, Ohio.|
Help shape the future of the restyling industry by joining the Professional Restylers Organization's (PRO) annual Long-Range Planning (LRP) meeting, May 1, at the University of Northwestern Ohio in Lima, Ohio.
"For several years this was a standalone meeting held in mid-June in Detroit," said PRO Chairman Karl Stearns. "With everyone on a lean budget this year, we decided to host it in conjunction with the Technical Skills & Training Conference (TSTC). This way, attendees may combine two trips into one."
The one-day meeting will begin at 8:00 a.m. with a general discussion of restyling and PRO council issues. Breakout groups will meet separately to discuss specific topics from the general discussion and then reconvene after lunch to present their summaries to the group.
"The date and location has changed, but the format stays the same," said Stearns. "The breakout groups are an effective way to get fresh ideas from council members, and virtually all of PRO’s successes originated at an LRP. Last year’s LRP alone produced the highly successful PRO NovemberFest awards reception at the 2009 SEMA Show, the "Why PRO?" informational business card and the Technical Skills & Training Conference. I urge all PRO members to attend. You have ideas, and we want to hear them!"
A continental breakfast and lunch will be provided.
There is no better opportunity to share ideas and plan for solutions than at the PRO Long-Range Planning meeting. If you haven't made your reservations, RSVP to Zane Clark at firstname.lastname@example.org, 909/396-0289 ext. 134 or visit www.sema.org/pro.
