The Management Clinic, hosted annually by the American Nursery and Landscape Association (ANLA), announced a change in schedule beginning February 2005. The event's historic ending on Superbowl Sunday prompted a survey, which showed more than 50 percent of the attendees preferred a Wednesday to Saturday schedule. Due to popular demand, the Management Clinic Programming Committee decided to change the schedule to allow the greatest number of attendees for the educational event.
"The Clinic has had such a significant impact on the growth and competitive strength of all of our businesses that we wanted to make it accessible to as many green industry owners and managers as possible," said Debi Drescher, committee co-chair. "The Clinic's traditional schedule required an entire weekend away from home and business. The new schedule will allow for a greater number of attendees."
The Management Clinic, which provides professional development sessions for growers, retailers, landscape professionals and distribution firms, will be held at the Galt House Hotel and Suites in Louisville, Ky. February 2-5, 2005, February 1-4, 2006 and January 31 to February 3, 2007. The Management Clinic is an industry event for the professional development exclusively for owners and managers.
