GREATER NEW ORLEANS EXECUTIVES ASSOCIATION
July 17, 2012
Today President-Elect Stanton Murray, Murray Yacht Sales led a Round Table Discussion on a review of programs from over the last six months and a guide to the next six months. Each table was asked to discuss what they liked about the programs from the past, what they would like to see in future programs and what they would not like to see again.
Here is a list of some of the best programs or speakers reported; Tim Ryan, Bill Haensel, Ron Blitch, Peter Ricchiuti, and Philip Rebowe. Some of the least favorable programs were politicians, “Tails of the Cocktail” and plastic surgeons.
Here is a list of suggested programs; Fraud Protection, more politicians without agendas, Obama care, Convention Center, Port of New Orleans, any Economist, Business Succession Planning after the Bush Tax is revoked, Infrastructure Plan for New Orleans and the state.
President, Robert Ramsey discussed some new recruiting strategies that he would like to implement. The association would focus each week or month on one or two open classification. He took suggestions from members on prospects for A/C & Heating and they were; Help Air Conditioning & Heating, Clement Heating & Air Conditioning and Pontchartrain Mechanical.
I am currently reviewing the roster for reprinting. Please look over an old roster to see if your listing is correct and if you have any changes, please call me or email me with the correction.
It was with regret that we accepted the resignation of Joe Cummins, Joe A. Cummins Advertising Specialties. The classification of “Advertising Specialties” is now open.
