Wrap Up: 2019 URG Annual Training Conference
by Don Porter, URG CEO
I want to personally thank the many auto recyclers, sponsors, and their employees for attending and supporting our annual conference. Because of you, the event was a huge success! It was also great to have so many new faces attend this year. I hope everyone took away key knowledge to help develop your business and continue a path of success.
Each year we develop a theme based on the current issues and problems facing our industry. This year, we felt as though “Expand the Possibilities” embodied the thoughts and potential business processes that recyclers need to put into practice in order to grow and flourish. We hope that this year's presenters helped each of you, regardless of business affiliation, learn how to expand the possibilities.
We kicked off the conference with my pre-recorded video in which I stressed the importance of your perspective in creating your own health, wealth, and happiness. Being able to evolve your perspective is one of most powerful tools you can possess! If we adopt a more empowering interpretation of the events affecting us, we can respond more efficiently to these events and life itself.
As recyclers, we need to change our perspective to mirror the changes in the economy and the recycled parts marketplace. Our continued goal at URG is to provide innovative products and services auto recyclers need to expand their business and gain efficiencies that positively affect their bottom line.
I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank the fantastic URG staff for their collective hard work in making this year’s conference a tremendous success. A special thanks goes out to my Executive Assistant/Conference Planner, Jennifer McPherson, whose long hours and dedication make the URG conference possible!
Again, thank you for attending! If you did not attend this year, we look forward to you attending next year’s conference in St. Louis, Missouri, April 16th-18th 2020 at the Hyatt Regency at the Arch!
