Registration is now open for the 2010 ANLA Management Clinic, the green industry’s only educational event dedicated exclusively to business management, which will take place Jan. 31 to Feb. 3, 2010, in Louisville, Ky. Early-bird registration for ANLA members is $549.
During this event, owners and managers come to learn the business skills — marketing, finance, inventory control and leadership — needed to compete in today’s competitive environment and difficult economic climate. These three days, featuring more than 70 sessions and networking opportunities, offers businesses the energy boost and new ideas needed to grow and succeed in 2010.
The full event schedule for 2010 is now available on the Management Clinic website, ManagementClinic.org , with a keynote line-up that includes Pearl Fryar, a true horticultural hero, and the return of another hero, Ernest Wertheim, who will share more of his life story with attendees.
This year's clinic also features the debut of Garden Idol, the session where new plants are introduced then critiqued by a panel of "celebrity" judges — then attendees choose the winner!
Early-bird registration for members is available through Dec. 17, and for each registration purchased over the first, you get $100 back. (Two registrations: $100 back. Three registrations: $200 back.) For more information on the clinic or to register, visit the ANLA Management Clinic website .
