Meeting Highlights


Coming to the Technical Meeting to improve your skills, broaden your knowledge and make new contacts? It all starts here: The Opening Reception. This will be your first look at ASBA’s trade show, with the newest products and services in the industry, plus the classic and dependable standards you’ve come to know and trust over the years. What’s on the market for the coming construction season? What will help you work smarter — not harder? What can really wow your customers? It’s all right here on the show floor.

The trade show will be open throughout the meeting at various times: during breaks, in the evenings and during some lunches. You can take the time to talk to your contacts, explore the broad spectrum of products and services and find out everything you need to know. Come and see why the exhibit hall is THE place to be!


Come in for breakfast and coffee. Catch up with your colleagues and join us for introductions. Help us recognize those who are attending the meeting for the first time (are you one of those?) as well as our 2017 award winners. Enjoy this opening session and get ready for a great meeting. You’ll learn what’s available to you and what to look forward to. Best of all, you’ll know you’re welcome at what promises to be one of our best meetings yet.

If you always wondered where your dues went, and how the association operates, here’s your chance. Oh, and if you’ve been looking for a way to get more involved, here’s your opportunity to find out how.

If you enter this keynote session expecting to learn all about best practices and superior strategy, you’d better read the title again. Standout success in a challenging economy often comes from personal advantage, whether it’s perceived value, personality, leadership style, communication skills, abundant resources, or access to privileged information. This entertaining session takes a realistic look at the influence you’ll need to make sure your knowledge and hard work deliver the results you want.
