Your RLA continues to grow as a premier member-driven industry group.
Our membership level has grown as it did in the earlier years, and I appreciate the support. We plan to continue growing our membership with more retailers and manufacturers that I am addressing at many industry events, as RLA is recognized as the voice of the reverse logistics industry. We are reaching out to companies in new categories such as postal, supply chain, service, recycling, material handling, and home delivery. We are also planning a membership drive supported by the RLA Advisory Board.
The survey results for the 2018 RLA Conference are in, and the majority of attendees said they were extremely or somewhat likely to recommend our event to your colleagues. Thank you for that great response.
We are looking at the reasons for attending, the most important topics at the conference and your requests for next year, and I can announce we will be in a new hotel in Las Vegas again the week of February 5th (right after the Super Bowl).
Since the RLA is a member driven association, we consider survey results important and we will listen to them. RLA will also survey members about what you need from this association. The Advisory Board has recommitted their support to the RLA, and to the 1-day Seminars that are being planned, as well as a return to Amsterdam for RLA Europe.
Stay tuned as we plan more for the RLA and our members, and we will keep growing.
Thank You All!
