When the NBDA Super Seminars kick off on January 21 in Austin, supplier sponsors will be involved to support each of the four regional events. Like the dealers who attend, participating suppliers understand the value in supporting dealer education and development of the retail channel.

"We're glad to be back again this year as a sponsor," said Park Tool's Marketing Director Bill Armas. "The Super Seminars are a great way to learn and dialog about issues affecting retail on a local level." Park Tool also supports retailers by hosting mechanic-focused training events staging in January titled the Park Tool Tech Summit.

With a similar view is returning sponsor Hans Johnsen Company. The distributor was a great partner at last year's seminar in Dallas, and will be on hand at this year's event in Austin, TX. Other 2009 sponsors are Bicycle Retailer and Industry News and Efficient Velo Tools (EVT). EVT's own Brett Flemming will host a session at each of the four seminars on increasing profitability within the service department derived from Brett's many years of experience as a bicycle retail service department manager and trainer.

The 2009 NBDA Regional Super Seminars are scheduled for the following dates and locations:

AUSTIN, TX - WED, JAN 21
Omni Austin Hotel Southpark
4140 Governor's Row, Austin, TX

PHOENIX, AZ - FRI, JAN 23
Fiesta Resort Conference Center
2100 South Priest Drive, Tempe, AZ

TAMPA, FL - TUE, FEB 3
Crowne Plaza Hotel Tampa East
10221 Princess Palm Ave, Tampa, FL

Full event details, a YouTube® sample video and registration information for the upcoming 2009 seminars can be found online by visiting the 2009 Regional Super Seminar page at NBDA.com. Each NBDA member may bring two attendees free of charge. Additional attendees and non-members are encouraged to participate, and may do so for only $50 per person. Continental breakfast and lunch is included at each of the one-day events.

MEMBERS: YOUR FEEDBACK REQUESTED ON INDEPENDENT BUSINESSES

Dear NBDA Members,

I'm writing to ask you to participate in a very brief survey of independent businesses.

The NBDA has teamed up with the Institute for Local Self-Reliance and other independent business organizations across the country to conduct this short survey.

It has two goals:

1. To gauge how independent businesses are faring in today's difficult economy, and

2. To assess whether people are more aware and supportive of independent businesses.

The survey has only 6 questions and takes fewer than 5 minutes to complete. And, importantly, the survey is confidential. It does not ask for your name or the name of your business. Only aggregate data -- not individual responses -- will be viewed by the associations involved.

Please click here to take the survey now

Thank you very much for your participation. Many of you replied to the survey last year, and the results were very helpful in making the case of the importance and viability of locally owned businesses. And, as was the case last year, the more responses we receive, the more accurate and useful this survey will be.

The deadline for completion is Tuesday, January 13, but I hope you will take a few minutes now to complete the survey.

Sincerely,

Fred Clements
Executive Director, National Bicycle Dealers Association
