Next week is the National Association of Church Business Administrators (NACBA) annual conference in Orlando Florida. I will be attending the conference along with some folks from our sales and customer support teams. We will be spending time in the exhibit area and also attending some of the many seminars offered. From a check of the attendee list for this year’s meeting, we once again see that over half of the churches that the attendees represent are using ACS. Being at this meeting each year is very much like being at our own annual conference (so much so that we have started calling next week ACS Convention – Part 2).
While visiting with clients and talking with prospects are the main activities for our staff at trade shows such as the one next week, a key advantage of attending these meetings is being able to spend time with our competitors and other vendors in the church market. I have always experienced good camaraderie with others that work in the church market. While there is some competition, there is also a shared mission of supporting the work of the churches.
If you are attending the NACBA conference next week, stop by the booth, see what’s happening at ACS, and say hello.
