Engagement. I know we’ve been talking about that a lot lately, and now, with our first annual meeting scheduled for March 16-18, 2014 we will be able to get together and really make that happen!
Gathering feedback from your survey responses, as well as from our advisory groups and several location visits by Shirley and I, our inaugural event will take place at the M Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.
There was an overwhelming vote by both our distributors and suppliers for Las Vegas, and this location gives us the amenities of a full service resort with affordable pricing for everyone that attends. Opened in 2009, the M Resort has 390 guest rooms and is 10 miles from the Las Vegas Strip. But this is no ‘little sister’ to the big girl hotels on the Strip; the resort offers luxurious rooms, two pools, a fitness center and spa, several restaurants and a casino that rivals those of the Strip’s best hotels. The M Resort also delivers exceptional service (Shirley and I got to experience this ourselves), and provides a complimentary shuttle service to and from the airport, and also an hourly round-trip service to the Las Vegas Strip at no charge for its guests.
Air transportation is a snap with Southwest airlines, with non-stop service from many gateways around the country. Details will be sent in our next quarterly mailing, so that you can start to make plans for this historic event. Shirley Weiland, your Director of Member Services, will be the point person for all of the annual meeting details, and she is excited to get information out to you very soon.
I am already looking forward to meeting so many of you that I have exchanged emails with and talked with over the phone. This is an exciting endeavor that will have lasting results on the growth and future of NetPlus Alliance – thank you for being a part of it!
