Ahh! Fall is finally in the air and if you are a sports fan like me your weekends are filled with pigskin passion and playoff baseball. With the holidays fast approaching I find the people around me getting excited about making plans to spend time with family and friends. Speaking of family, in our business sometimes we forget how much we depend on vendors, manufacturer sales reps, and distributors. Without their support it would be very difficult to keep up with the rapid changes in technology required to stay relevant in today’s market. I had the opportunity last month to attend the local ADI expo and wanted to thank them for not only providing some excellent training and access to a multitude of manufacturer reps but ADI has been a longstanding financial supporter of our scholarship program which they again made a nice donation to this year. Thank you, Alan Higgins and Sharon Gildernew, for your support of the AAF and our scholarship program. Now it is up to you to get the word out to our members and public officials about the need for scholarship applications so we can help ease the financial burden of attaining a great education and hopefully one day these individuals can give back to this great industry. The application and guidelines are on our website and can be found here.
