We took some ACTION and got involved in the NJSA golf committee…
Thank you to Matt from GAR our gracious host at his facility in South Plainfield they specialize in servicing the aerial work platform needs of contractors, sub-contractors, and industrial firms… so if you need to get high, call Matt…
He also is the Golf Ball Sponsor – GAR Equipment … http://www.garequipment.com
Giveaway Sponsor – Genie … http://www.genielift.com/en/
Cocktail Sponsor – JLG … https://www.jlg.com
Lunch Sponsor – Skyjack … http://skyjack.com/global
Hole In One Sponsor – True & Associates… we saw Logan True… a young professional getting involved… I love it! … http://www.trueassoc.com/
And we didn’t get him on camera, but we have to mention Greg from GEM… he puts on a lot of great events, but none more important than FCCF … Fighting Children’s Cancer Foundation… http://fccf.info/
What’s really cool about getting involved in the committee is that it gives me ACTION to take other than just selling firestop… I have some contractors and distributors to call where I will be selling the idea of the importance of having a strong industry trade organization… not pushing product… see the difference?
Anyway, I firmly believe if you are a subcontractor, or even a general contractor, supplier or manufacturer (except if you’re Hilti or 3M, firestop is covered) and your business in or does work in New Jersey you should be a part of the NJSA in some way..so take some ACTION and get involved.
A quick stop at HQ/corporate to finalize Toastmasters 2.0… and we walk out with 4 new sign-ups bringing us up to 16 new members… essentially doubling our club size. We had an issue with the meeting times being in the evening we took some ACTION, moved the meetings to lunch time and BANG! …we’re back in business! We could have let it fizzle out, but we took ACTION… now the test is getting everyone up to speed before our next meeting… but that’s why they call it the burn.
We had lunch with Marc from Thermal Materials / Tri-City… a very long-standing distribution relationship. We share some ideas and contractor targets that we are going to go after. We are going to take some ACTION and do a mailer to a select targeted group of mechanical/plumbing contractors. Going to work so more from Marc in an upcoming episode I’m certain… http://www.tricityinsulation.com
Finally we went to Allied another great distribution partner of ours over the years… I saw Tom yesterday who said to come see him so we didn’t wait we took immediate ACTION… so we can turn yesterday’s social/business golf event into immediate business while it is still fresh in everyone’s head… https://alliedbuilding.com/
So there it is ACTION… take some
