The USAV Leadership Conference will take place April 28-30 in Dallas, TX.
February 08, 2013 | by D. Craig MacCormack

USAV will host the members-only USAV Leadership Conference (ULC) in April in Dallas.

The event, sponsored by Chief Manufacturing, will focus on “fostering professional growth in functional-level leadership within USAV integrator organizations,” according to the event announcement.

The conference is an effort by USAV leadership to extend its focus on collaboration among affiliates’ executives on business strategies, best practices and marketing to the next level of leadership.

Those who attend the new leadership conference will “discover new strategies for improving individual performance, and derive fresh ideas for helping USAV organizations succeed on a whole new level,” according to event organizers.

The sessions offered at the ULC “will encourage attendees to build relationships with others serving in the same functional capacity at other USAV member organizations, further professional development through education and CTS training, and connect with key representatives from USAV’s Manufacturer Partners to learn more about products and services that can help them to better serve clients,” according to the event announcement.

“We are very excited to expand USAV’s reach this year and become more involved with the employees of our affiliates,” says USAV CEO K.C. Schwarz in the press release. “USAV staff, along with the DAC, has worked hard to identify new ways to bring value to our members.”

“We feel strongly that the ULC will create deeper connections between our member companies by involving a greater number of people from each organization. The conference will also help dealers develop closer and more productive relationships with USAV Manufacturer Partners,” Schwarz says.
