(CHICAGO) June 24, 2014 – Joann DeNardis, NAMA’s Director of Education, announced today the record attendance of NAMA’s 2014 Supervisor Development Program. Returning after a two year hiatus, the 12th SDP was held in Las Vegas on June 5-6, and included new faculty, additional topics and a new two-day format.
“We are extremely pleased with the turnout of this program after its two year hiatus,” DeNardis said. “The group was highly engaged throughout the session and attendees were very excited to implement their new knowledge in the workplace.”
This year a record number of 38 participants took part in the program, and many graduates attested to its value in enhancing their skill set for current or future roles in the industry.
“The NAMA Supervisor Development Program was a wonderful experience for me, as a manager, so early in my career,” wrote Daniel R. Tamm of Total Vending & Coffee, in a testimonial. “The concepts that were presented were directly applicable to my current position and I will continue to utilize and expand on the skills that I have learned for many years to come,” he continued. “Every one of the speakers had an incredible amount of knowledge and new skills to share with the group. Simply put, this one is a winner.”
