Brave new world for LBM, the webinar

HBSDealer will host a webinar Friday to explore how lumberyards continue to respond to the coronavirus outbreak. "Brave New World of LBM" is set for Friday, April 17 at 2 p.m.

This Hardware & Building Supply Dealer webinar will examine priorities and best practices out in the field, and in the yard. A panel of industry leaders will address operations in an unprecedented business environment.

Topics include:

  • Employee safety and morale;

  • Social distancing vs. product delivery;

  • Communication strategies;

  • Keeping up with the mandates; and

  • Serving the customer and the community.

Set to share their thoughts on these concepts are three well-respected industry leaders: Levi Smith, president of Franklin Building Supply of Boise, Idaho; Rita Ferris, president of the Northeastern Retail Lumber Association; and Jay Short, president and CEO of Short & Paulk of Tifton, Ga.

"For anyone in the hardware and building supply industry, this webinar is certain to prove valuable," said Ken Clark, editor of HBSDealer. "It's topic number one. And we intend to discuss what's happening on the ground, and how these leaders are navigating the coronavirus outbreak."
