TCATA Annual Conference scores high ratings

TCATA Annual Conference scores high ratings (USA)

The Textile Care Allied Trades Association’s (TCATA) 2018 Annual Management and Educational Conference held in May 2-5, in Puerto Rico was a success, despite limited attendance compared to previous years. Attendees had the chance to network, share knowledge and interact with their fellows. The business program was full of interesting speaches and seminars.

Keynote speaker Herb Meyer, a former high ranking official at the CIA, provided a unique perspective on global economic and political developments, noting that there is much good news – though often unreported – around the world. A key takeaway for all businesses is that there are growing numbers of people around the world emerging from poverty, creating an expanding market for all kinds of products and services. Speaker Gene Marks expanded on a list of key items – many because of the recent tax bill – that all businesses should be aware of in the coming years. Finally, Bill Graham discussed tangible ways to increase your personal likeability, resulting in better business and personal relationships.

The conference ended with Saturday night’s closing dinner in which Gerald Henke, Intex Distributing, was honored as he retired as TCATA president. Leslie Schaeffer of National Clothesline (see separate story) was installed as the new president of the Association.
