Vegas Parking Garage Event idea possibly??

Recommended Posts

Besides what is being said Ron and I still talk shop on occasion. He called me yesterday with an interesting idea which took me awhile to think about it and does it make sense to try what he's suggesting. Ron is much more of a risk taker then I am and most people I know in this industry.

So after Ron's call I called a couple of guys on this Vegas Committee to feel them out on this.

Today Ron and I talked a couple of more times. Nothing just comes easy....at least not for me.

After these calls I talked to the same guys I talked to last night and we have an idea that works well with Ron's idea.

So the very next step is where setting up a conference call for this coming Monday with the Vegas Committee and Ron to see how between his idea and what the committee came up with will work for others in this Industry.

It was extremely hard to get to this point because of the net stuff that some take to be the end all in Industry matters which in my experiences with anything it never is.

So will see. I think personally it's a good idea but now can people see past the net?? I know I can and I think Ron can do the same but we can't answer for others. You gotta luv some challenges.

If this idea fly's I'll surely bring it to TGS and a few other bb's.

I'm not sure what your asking. As for my quote if that's what you want to know about--I have to think things over a few times to see if some idea's can really work so that way I can hopefully give a more thoughtful response on the net. For some maybe they can post without thinking and that's their MO on how they operate but for me I have to think it thru first---Does that make it any clearer for you?

Ok the Vegas Committee has worked something out. We will announce something soon that the attendees will get something that shows they got some actual training in here. This was something Ron and I discussed yesterday and today as well where it can benefit ones who attend who may want this.

It's all about helping out people in this Industry.

A training certificate is a great idea, especially for marketing purposes.

Certified in Parking Garage Cleaning sounds really nice.

Hey Chris-- Ron was talking certifications thru the *****. Were only doing a hands on and attendee participation with this Vegas Parking Garage Event. If he thinks this may help others within the ***** it's up to him and his board to decide. Our only thing here is to give the attendees there monies worth by trying to give them something different.

John the ***** will accept your training as long as you provide certificate of completion that is signed by instructor.

The ***** is accepting all independent training towards certification hours. This does not mean they are certified in anything until other requirements by the ***** are met. This will be only used for the training hours we require.

In no way does the ***** Sponsor this event or will use the events name in anything other than letting its members know that this is a resource. Garage cleaning event will not use the ***** name in promotions without written permission from the Director.

I will see you in Vegas good luck with all the training John.

The training Hours can go towards any certificate you wanted, you have over five years in business.

Garage Cleaning is not on the list at this point.

This document will be made out for each attendee and signed as well. How or what they do with it afterwords it's their choice.

Also so everyone is clear this Vegas Event Is not sanctioned or sponsored by any orgs. Also no documents will have any org logo's or names on it.

In Rons case here if he thinks this is a benefit for any ***** members to have this we leave that decision up to him and his fellow Board of Directors with no input from us.

It's all about giving our Industry members some viable options that if they think there's a benefit for them somewhere in here then they have choices.

Thanks for the good luck wishes Ron and good luck to yourself as well.

We have a nice surprise hotel block upgrade that where going to announce with the new flyer which should be cool.

You guys are going to be at the Wynns resort in the same time frame.. Now that's got to have some lounge in there. Maybe I'll stop in there to check that out. I haven't been to one of your events in awhile so that one should be interesting to check out.

Kinda like what me and a pal of mine did at the PWNA Convention in October. When we had some free time we jumped in a cab and went to the CETA Convention to check out the Newest Cyclone.. That was big time cool:)

I have stayed at the Wynn John, the likelihood we will have and event at the same time is pretty slim. The New Jersey event is going around the same time of the month. Will Be there most likely, but I'm sure will catch some of the folks at the event to socialize. Sounds like a great time

Chris are you ***** certified yet?

I called Nichole after you called me and left her a voice message a couple times about this, never heard back from her.

I would like to be certified but did not hear back from her, not sure what to do, I have not been to the ***** site that much or in a while now.

Let me see if I understand your statement....

Since I will be doing the training, I guess that means that You Ron **********, as president of the *****, is asking me to sign the "Certificate of Completion" so that your ***** members can get credit from the Parking Garage Cleaning Class.

HUH.....Lets think about that.

Jim Gamble, who Russ banned off the ***** BBS, is signing certificates for the ***** members to use to make "possible" dollars from having the certificate that has Jim Gamble's signature on it.

Ok, that says allot.

Jim, If I understand correctly, You would sign a certificate for completion so that this certificate can count towards continuous education hours like many industries have.

Many Nurses, Teachers, Electricians, Plumbers, etc..... need to get some continuous education hours per year, not sure how many but attending classes, conventions and other events where they get a certificate of completion is good for their hours needed yearly to keep in good standing in their industry.

By you making a certificate and signing it, it would be a continuous education hours credit.

Here in Texas there is no licensing for Pressure Washing but the continuous education hours are showing that you are always trying to improve your knowledge and skills to help better the industry and show that you are trying to offer the best possible service by always learning what is available out there in education in your industry.

I could be wrong but I think that is what Ron was saying.

It's that simple , how ever I think you stand to have more participating ***** accepting this. Just got off Phone with a member needing hours for certification. I steered him your way.

Keep in mind this isn't about who you like or popularity contest. It simple people can learn and better themselves, everyone always has something to offer.

Keep in mind the idea of receiving a couple training hours won't get you a ***** certification. You still need to meet all requirements and pass the exam.

The ***** is taking a much different approach than in the past with this process.

Again if your a independent trainer or company we are looking for you to help train. If your a contractor who loves teaching please join us.

Text me anytime for question 480-522-5227

Jim instead of bringing up something else entirely, think about what is being asked again. You are providing training to the attendees of your event. Is it too much to ask that you provide your students with documentation showing they attended? It doesn't have to do anything with the ***** at all. In fact they may wish to use that as part of their own marketing. In the event they do decide on their own to pursue a ***** certification, we are saying that your class will be valuable, educational and relevant to the industry and can be used toward training requirements. That sounds like a compliment to me.
