    Default 2012 CarveWright Conference - Poll

    When we have our 2012 Conference will mostly be determined by when we can get a facility.

    But, we would like to hear from you. What would be the best time to hold a conference? (Keep in mind how HOT Houston can get.)

    Maybe find something close to water somewhere... lake, gulf, whatever. Let's try and set up Video Conf this time for those that are not able to make it. Maybe charge those a smaller fee than those who are attending. Especially thinking of people like Al Who and other senior members who have contributed so much to our CW family. Perhaps even make a video recording of the presentations given at the seminar and make them available to others (again for a nominal fee). I wonder if Jason could even set things up as a Webinar of some sort (with all given permissions of course). Maybe even invite a Lowe's Corporate Office Rep so they can see what the CW does and it would give them an incentive to let STARTU members give demos at ALL Lowe's locations nationwide instead of having us do it as a "hit and miss" with each location. After our seminar Lowes might would send out a notice to all Regions whereby giving us permission to give demos to potential customers. Just thinking out loud with some ideas.

    Great ideas, Jerry. You guys keep 'em coming.

    "by water" Clear Lake is not much further than the place we had it last time. Also Galveston Island is a beautiful location with LOTS of rooms and meeting spaces. It is <30 minutes south of us.

    Hi Jerry,

    If you give a demo in Lowes, who gets credit for any sales made?...you or Lowes?

    I think what most of them are doing is:

    If the sale is made at the store, then Lowes takes the sale. If the sale is not made there, START U member takes the customer information, follows up and then takes the sale.

    When I gave my demos at Lowes, I would tell them they could buy the machine on line at Lowes web site, but if they wanted to
    other extras ,they could give me a call and I could help them order everything at one time. As it turn out no one placed an order
    with Lowes or with me that day.
    I have sold the machines thru demos at my house with the START U program than any where else.

    I have often wondered why it is that
    Conservatives are called the "right" and Liberals are called the "left".

    the fool to the left."
