“I have found the topics discussed at the ABC’s Regional meetings to be relevant to issues facing contractors of today. The meetings are located in areas where I can schedule to attend. As an example, I have used the knowledge gained from the ABC meetings in our management team meetings to better manage and retain our co-workers.”
– Thomas W. Bertolet, Bertolet Construction Corporation
“I have attended many of the regional meetings in Harrisburg, Wyomissing, and Lancaster, and have found them as a means and opportunity to network with new and current members, be educated on relevant topics that affect businesses today, all in a concise and timely manner (once every other month for an hour, beginning at 7:30 a.m.) that doesn’t prevent me from missing valuable time during my business day. I would recommend this forum to all current and prospective members in the region as it allows you to create new business relationships and learn valuable information that affects your businesses.”
– David H. Oblender, CRIS, Engle-Hambright & Davies, Inc.
“The regularly scheduled and “close to you” networking opportunities never hurt and, by keeping to the roughly one hour schedules, these AM meetings are a great way to start a productive day without sacrificing too much.”
– Eric Fleming, WESCO Distribution
“I thoroughly enjoy the whole premise of the “Wake-up Call” meetings. They are early in the morning, so as not to break up or interrupt the day. The topics I have seen have all been relevant and worthwhile, the venues have been convenient to my location, and the times have been condensed to where I obtain great information but can still make it into my office by 9 am.”
