National Automatic Merchandising Association OneShow April 25 To 27, 2012 To Offer Supervisor Development Program And Coffee Certification Program

The National Automatic Merchandising Association's (NAMA) OneShow,SM slated to be held April 25 to 27, 2012, at the Venetian/Sands in Las Vegas, will once again offer the Supervisor Development Program (SDP) and Quality Coffee Certification Program (QCCP) to operator-attendees.  Both training programs, which are designed to help build business and accelerate personal growth, begin prior to the OneShow's official kick-off date.

 "The fact that our SDP and QCCP have been around for so many years, and have such a large number of graduates nationwide, is a testament to their success and the need for these types of programs within our association and our industry," said LyNae Schleyer, NCE, CMP, NAMA's senior director, OneShow and education in a prepared statement.  "Our members rely on NAMA to learn how to continue to grow their businesses, and these programs provide them with tangible tools, training and solutions to succeed in an ever-changing environment."

 NAMA's Supervisor Development Program (SDP), which was redesigned last year, will be offered April 23-25, and is ideal for new or recently promoted managers who can benefit from additional management training through small group discussions and hands-on learning. The three days of essential learning will be led by Ronald Cichy, Ph.D, NCE5, and Director of Michigan State University's School of Hospitality Business; Rick Leffke, President of Leffke & Associates; and Jim Proebstle, President and Founder of Prodyne Inc.  NAMA staff members also adding their high-level of expertise to the SDP include Dan Mathews, NCE5, CCS, and NAMA's Interim CEO; and Joann DeNardis, PHR, Associate Director, OneShow & Member Services.

Editor’s Insight: These education programs are excellent ways for vending and coffee service operators to improve key management and operational skills. They offer outstanding value for the cost.

The OneShow offers some of the best industry specific training available. Operators who want to prosper need to consider sending their personnel to this event. 11-22-11 By Elliot Maras
