Together We Can Meet Our Challenges
First we need to become financially stable. Obviously we need to increase revenue to operate and thrive in today’s economy. There are currently three opportunities available to members to help the association increase revenue. Federated Insurance, Abilita Telecommunications and Access to Money are three companies that I encourage members to use. The association will earn a percentage of the revenue for new accounts from these companies. Secondly, we need to increase membership. New members pay dues and infuse the association with new thoughts and ideas. The larger we become as an association, the more visible we are in Tallahassee. I encourage each of you to invite marketers, dealers and suppliers who are not members to join. Last, we need to communicate!!! Two, or three or four, heads are always better than one. I, along with the staff at the FPMA office, welcome your ideas and will work diligently to address your concerns. I would like to thank the members of the association for putting your trust in me. I have grown up in this industry, and many of you have known me my whole life. It is an honor to be the chairman of an association that Hinson Oil Company has been a member of since 1968. ❍
nother year has come and gone and we faced many challenges in the past year. I am sure that the next year will offer just as many challenges. The biggest change in the near future is the resignation of Jim Smith. As most of you are now aware, Jim resigned effective September 15, 2010. Jim has been a strong advocate for our association, and he has worked tirelessly on many issues facing our industry. Jim has been a friend and mentor to me through the years and I will miss him. I join all the members of the FPMA in wishing Jim and Cindy the best of luck in their future endeavors. The convention and expo held in Orlando at the Gaylord Palms Resort was very well attended. I would like to thank the FPMA staff for their hard work in making this a success. We need to continue to thank the staff for the hard work they do throughout the year. Just in case you missed my exciting, brilliant speech at the banquet, I want to again repeat my goals for the next two years. These are things that are very important to the livelihood of our association and they will require hard work from all of our members.
