Hear What Others Say About Attending Leadership Summit

"This was my first NAWLA Leadership Summit. The vibe is much different from Traders Market; it is more intimate. There is time and space to allow your mind to open and consider new ideas for your company's future success and planning. Traders Market is 'working in the business.' Leadership Summit is 'working on the business.' I came home with three business plans to write thanks to my conversations at Leadership Summit."

- Tina Breen, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Manufacturers Reserve Supply

"The Leadership Summit is such a great place to see old faces and new. The LS is always a great event to network, refresh, and refocus on my business. Not a better place to be than to be with NAWLA Leadership."

- Curt Stuckey, General Manager, Wholesale Wood Products- Birmingham, AL

"I have always enjoyed the opportunity the Leadership Summit provides that no other NAWLA event has - education, lots of networking events, and also down time to get work done. My husband also enjoys going to these events to meet the people I work with."

- KayCee Hallstrom, Vice President, Zip-O-Log Mills, Inc.
