Invitation Letter From Scott Yates

Dear Fellow Mountain States Members:

I would like to personally invite you to join me at NLBMDA’s ProDealer Industry Summit to be held in Colorado Springs, Colorado at the beautiful Broadmoor Resort from October 28-30. For the first time the ProDealer Industry Summit will be held in our backyard, and I strongly encourage all of you to attend this incredible event for LBM Dealers. The Summit will be taking the place of our own annual Conference this year.

I have had the privilege of representing Mountain States Lumber & Building Material Dealers Association on NLBMDA’s Board of Directors for 7 years. I will be stepping into the role of NLBMDA Chair at the conference and it would be an honor to have my fellow MSLBMDA colleagues in attendance. I would like to offer all MSLBMDA members a special discount to attend the summit by using the promotional code of MSLBMDA150. This will save you an additional fifty dollars off the already discounted early-bird rate. The deadline to take advantage of this one time offer is Monday, August 3.

The ProDealer Industry Summit is an exclusive three-day educational and networking forum designed to promote the growth of lumber & building product dealers, distributors, wholesalers, and the manufacturers who supply them. LBM dealers will benefit from sharing insights and best practices with leaders in the industry in a relaxed format that encourages networking and personal interaction.

The 2015 ProDealer Industry Summit will feature educational sessions on critical issues and hot topics that will be presented by highly thought-provoking speakers including:

  • Rick Davis, Owner of Building Leaders & Author
  • Vicki Worden, Executive Director of the Green Building Initiative
  • Crystal Washington, Social Media Marketing Strategist
  • Dr. David Crowe, NAHB Chief Economist
