One of the most valuable benefits of belonging to ERA is the opportunity to network with your peers and industry partners about your business and operations.
To offer an informal networking environment to all rep firm and distributor personnel, Carolinas ERA is hosting bimonthly Rep-Distributor Networking Breakfast. (ERA considers networking so critical that Carolinas ERA was named a Chapter of the Year for these events!)
These get-togethers offer an opportunity to make new contacts, ask questions of your peers, seek advice, swap “war stories” and exchange best practices.
A table or private room reserved for these events, and each breakfast is moderated by a CERA officer. All you need to do is invite others in your firm to join you … make a reservation … and BE THERE!
There is no cost to attend except to cover your own breakfast tab. To save your place, please register below (or if you have questions), please e-mail Stephanie Tierney at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please respond no later than WEDNESDAY, May 31, to help ensure adequate seating.
ERA CEO Walter Tobin will open the program with an ERA update.
Cesare Giammarco, special consultant for ERA, will follow with a presentation called, “Reps/Distributors and the Manufacturers Channel Directives-Singular Goal, Shared Challenges.” Finally, Barry Farber, president of HHP Associates, will present the 2017 DTAM Survey report.
There is no cost to attend this event.
