What an Annual Convention!

ARA’s 48th Annual Convention and 50th Anniversary Celebration was a huge success!  Nearly 200 people gathered in Nashville, Tennessee for education, networking and to discuss timely and important industry topics. It was also special for us to celebrate our 50th anniversary by honoring many past ARA presidents at our dinner and dance.


Dynamic speakers, including keynote speaker Chris Hogan from Dave Ramsey’s Speakers Group, focused on how business owners and entrepreneurs can be empowered and successful by going back to our roots – things we used to do that helped our companies thrive.  Also, Rick Gilman with comF5 educated us on the future of video technology and how to utilize it.

Lastly, we discussed critical industry topics such as the industry scorecard, compliance and ARMS.


Thank you to all our members, vendors, clients and special guests for making this convention one to remember!  We are proud of what ARA has accomplished in the past 50 years and look forward to more success in the future!


We’ll be posting more reaps of our convention this week, including our new members, new board of directors, past presidents, charter members and award winners.
