The proposed class schedule for 2018 is listed below.
 
Attending this convention will give you the opportunity to learn new things, experience new products to sell and service, and to network with your peers on a personal level; a levels that cannot be matched by exchanges on the internet alone.
 
Attendance is a part of routine professional development that will certainly go a long way in helping you to better serve your customers, dealers, and manufacturers and to better develop your business.
