ANLA Mgmt Clinic (1)

Last night I worked the 1st event as a “new attendee” moderator, at the table Colorado, Arkansas, Colorado, Missouri, Ohio, California, and Montreal-Canada.

Typical of the kind of table you can expect to sit at during the clinic. Viewpoints from around the country.

As someone at the table said

Generalizations can be dangerous, and your ability to get beyond your own generalizations is important.

Where else could this happen at an event in our industry? Not many other places/events. With such diversified views or needs based on the attendee’s part in the industry.

Highlight for me was the A.M. Leonard party and the unveiling of the new ANLA website, sometime in Mid-March, about a 1,000 times better. ANLA and the internet have entered the 21st century . . . woohoo!

Okay off to the opening, more later.

Dube’. In the year 2000 WCI became a sole proprietorship owned by Rick Anderson. Today the WCI provides design and consultation services for Landscape Contractors, acts as a Green Industry think tank, and provides training for others in the form of workshops, seminars, and individual consulting.
