HDA Truck Pride says its 2017 Annual Membership Meeting hit its mark with members and suppliers as they met to discuss “Navigating Sustainable Growth.” For this organization, implementing a data-driven product marketing strategy and leveraging technology to focus on continuous improvement are keys for sustainable growth, the organization says.
During last week’s general session at the event more than 800 attendees were briefed on a thorough product category management strategy, a comprehensive new website, a world-class training overhaul, and the introduction of a multilevel telematics solution. The HDA Truck Pride Partners in Profit suppliers showed unfaltering support with an exclusive “red carpet preview” to the Supplier Showcase. And to round out the week, HDA Truck Pride says there were on-site training clinics put on by HDA Truck Pride Staff, a GenNext HD Speed mentoring session, and a fantastic keynote address by leadership expert Tom Flick on the distinction between leading and managing.
Additionally, last Thursday’s general session features the 2016 Truck Service Expert of the Year award presentation. STS Truck Services was named the group’s newest winners, and Chad Adams and Bob Harper made the trip to Orlando to accept the prestigious award.
“Our goals for the membership meeting are to engage our supply chain partners and empower our membership to focus on continuous improvement and sustainable growth,” says Don Reimondo, president and CEO. “Reflecting upon our 2017 meeting, we accomplished our goals while seizing the opportunity to spend time together breaking bread and building upon already strong relationships.”
