The EM NARI membership meeting on December 7 started on a high note with...a visit from Santa!
The Jolly Man in Red arrived to collect the huge pile of toys collected by our membership to benefit Toys for Tots. The Toys for Tots program, which is run by the United States Marine Corps Reserve, distributes the toys to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them Christmas gifts.
Mark One, Inc., [http://www.markoneinc.com/] sponsored the December meeting and organizes the toy donation every year. In fact, this is their 16th year collecting toys! Rob Pascucci, Operations Manager for Mark One, reports, “The final total of toys from NARI member donations should surpass 250, including over one hundred from Puccio Electric! [http://www.puccioelectric.com/] Adding this to our other donations means we will have collected over 400 toys this year. Mark-One, Inc. continues to work with Toys for Tots because of our great relationship with the Marine Corps League. As a veteran myself, I admire the fact that those who served our nation in uniform continue to find ways to serve.”
Well-known throughout the remodeling industry, Paul Winans was an inspirational speaker on Wednesday.
Paul, who as many in the room knew, ran a highly successful remodeling business with his wife, Nina, for 29 years before they sold it in 2007. Paul spent the hour talking about his “systems-oriented” approach to business management. Some key take-aways from his presentation:
