Posted by Kenyon Gleason on 5/14/19 3:36 PM

It was a cold, dreary and somewhat blustery late-fall day in North Dakota in the late ’80s. I was on the back of a horse, and there were cattle to be driven home for winter. I was in charge of getting the last stragglers out of the pasture and on the road to home.

Chairwoman’s Message: Size vs Strength

Posted by Laurie Aronson on 4/29/19 12:24 PM

Our industry is actually small.  We’re powerful, but we’re small.  Outsiders to the industry know us as a force to be reckoned with, but the insiders recognize the fact that we must stick together to make things happen and that we rely on everyone’s participation to accomplish our goals because of our small size.  That’s OK though.  We get our business done inside of the trade so that we are prepared to introduce our products outside to the marketplace.

Chairwoman’s Message: Where Is YOUR Happy Place?

Posted by Laurie Aronson on 3/28/19 9:57 AM

As spring takes hold across the country, we are all thinking ahead and looking forward to our summer plans.  For my family and me, it’s Aspen.   There is no better place to be in the summertime than the cool Colorado mountains (and it’s a great escape from the brutal summers in Louisiana).  Aspen provides a full menu of outdoor activities from hiking, walking, bike riding, and it hosts the most spectacular fly fishing landscape you’ve ever experienced.  It’s my “happy place.”  Besides the beauty it provides, the biggest benefit of this wondrous escape is that of quiet thinking time outside of the hustle and bustle of the office.  It creates time to clear my mind and it affords me the opportunity to brainstorm and generate new ideas to bring back to our team.
