Celebrating 100 Years
Associated Employers 100 Year Celebration/Annual Member Meeting was enjoyed by over 150 people. Thank you to all who participated in this monumental moment for your Association! Introductions were made by Bryan Peterson, VP. Ted Lovec, President/Owner of American Title & Escrow, shared his experience as a Board Member since 1991 and long term AE member with the group. Gregg Wilson, VP provided a bit of history as a 22 year employee and Greg Roadifer, President reported the State of the Association. Our Keynote, Coach Ken Carter, provided an entertaining and enlightening presentation. His gregarious personality was enjoyed by all. In 2005 he was portrayed by Samuel L. Jackson in film, Coach Carter.
For 100 years Associated Employers has changed, adapted and grown into an Association with nearly 1000 members representing organizations across the west. We are extremely grateful for your past support and look forward to working with you in the future as we remain steadfast in being fiercely dedicated to your success.
How does an organization make it to 100 years? I believe it has to do with dedicated employees and loyal member companies. Over the past 5 years we have bolstered our employee team with some amazing talent. Our dynamic team of 25 employees is the most talented team of employees I have ever been part of. They want to meet and exceed your expectations. We will continue to recruit and train the best in class talent, so that we can continue to provide value to our Members.
We will not rest on our past successes… We have introduced many exciting and new services over the past 100 years and we expect to continue to grow, evolve and adapt to the new challenges employers are facing. I believe that a Technology focused Association is our future. Associated Employers has launched a top quality job board: JobJupiter.com and we are launching a world class time keeping website: SlatePayroll.com. We have many new and exciting technology initiatives on the drawing board that we think our members will value and appreciate. The next decade will be Associated Employers Decade of Technology.
I want to end this letter with deep gratitude and appreciation for our Members. I hope we can make the next 100 years as successful and exciting as the past 100 years. We strive to make a positive impact on our Members every day, so please let me know what we can do for you or your business.
