Although I was personally not able to attend this year, the NSGA Management Conference and Team Dealer Summit is currently taking place in Hilton Head, South Carolina. Stahls’ is represented this year by several people, including our son Brett. This is a fantastic networking event that combines educational sessions with the opportunity to meet with peers. Although there have been a few rough bumps in the industry recently, with the major chains Sports Authority and Sports Chalet closing hundreds of stores, the atmosphere at the conference remains positive. In addition to the keynote speech from boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard, there were educational sessions that brought attention to several important issues, including the science of relationships. I’m looking forward to sharing more with you on the topic of relationships, but here are some photos for now.
