Innovate 2016 Spans Generations with Shared Message of Success and Support for Others

SAN ANTONIO, TX – “Innovate 2016, “the NARSA spring conference, provided an audience of loyal NARSA business leaders with a refreshing outlook as the 2016 season begins.

Two great leaders with proven track records in building successful businesses provided detailed and personal accounts on how they succeeded. Both Frank Finger and Jim Butitta acknowledged that lion’s share of their accomplishments came by surrounding themselves with talented people. They were both inspiring and both shared genuine and emotional messages about the importance of respect for others and sharing.

Workshops gave the conference participants time to learn from experienced facilitators and from their peers in a comfortable setting. Workshops on social media, DPF filters, employee management, constructing facilities and strategic planning were presented by industry insiders who are currently walking the walk.

Said NARSA executive Wayne Juchno, “The conference was designed by business leaders for business leaders. The result was a solid program. It is very important for our members to stay in touch with the past as well as plan for their future. We had three generations of members representing their businesses. It was really exciting to see the generational give and take. I hope we can do this again next year. I would hope those who attended would come again and bring others.”

NARSA could not have produced this special conference without the support of a group of leading companies and members.
