There is still time to register and attend the only national conference by lumber dealers for lumber dealers.

Registration is still open for the Pro Dealer Industry Summit set for Oct. 17-19 at the Radisson Blu Aqua Hotel in Chicago.

The ProDealer Industry Summit is an exclusive 3-day educational and networking forum designed to promote the growth of lumber & building product dealers, distributors, wholesalers, and the manufacturers who supply them. LBM dealers will benefit from sharing insights and best practices from leaders in the industry in a relaxed format that encourages networking and personal interaction.

This year’s event features Green Beret Commander Mark Nutsch, portrayed in the movie “12 Strong” and author of New York Times Best-Seller, “Horse Soldiers.” Nutsch will share insights on leadership and team dynamics in overcoming insurmountable odds in what was described as “the most important mission of the free world.”

Also on hand will be John Burns, CEO of Real Estate Consulting, LLC, who will discuss a national housing market overview and share his outlook for the future – including findings from his groundbreaking book “Big Shifts Ahead: Demographic Clarity for Executives.”

Additional speakers include Jim Hooper, vp of mergers and acquisitions at U.S. LBM; David Helmers, vp of distribution at Weyerhaeuser; Russ Kathrein, president and CEO of Alexander Lumber; and Mike McGaugh, executive vice president and COO of BMC Stock Holdings, among others.

A full listing of speakers and events is available here.

The ProDealer Industry Summit is presented by the NLBMDA (National Lumber & Building Material Dealers Association) and by Hardware + Building Supply Dealer (HBSDealer).
