Guest Post: Jeff Cook
The NVLA Annual Conference kicked off last night – albeit without Ruggles. He’s resting comfortably in Las Vegas after a mild heart attack last week. Prognosis is for a full recovery and he’ll be back on the conference circuit in no time. He asked that I send his regards to all.
That said, the vibe here in Fort Worth is outstanding and we anticipate a great conference. We’ve got Chamber of Commerce weather and a group of us hit the legendary Joe T. Garcia’s last night after the opening reception.
Attendance is up 50% over last year and there is a new Lease Here Pay Here (LHPH) track garnering attention. Tom Webb from Manheim and Ricky Beggs from Black Book are here, as is the association’s new business development partners Cathedral Consulting.
I’ll report back tomorrow with more details. In the meantime, if you’d like to drop Ruggles a line or comment here, I know he’d love to hear from you.
