We normally take the month of July off from USDC meetings because it seems that everyone is busy vacationing or just taking it easy. This year is no different. There will be no official USDC meeting this month. We will return with a monthly meeting on the third Thursday of August. That being said, we found a couple of other meetings that you might be interested in.
This month, we have two opportunities for you to hone your skills. The first one is next Tuesday where the Air Logistics Center will be hosting an industry day. The event will be held at the Ogden Eccles Conference Center. To register, you need to follow this link. If you are interested at all in doing business with Hill Air Force Base and/or the companies who contract with them, you should plan to attend this event.
In case you didn't know this, health care is a growing industry. Unfortunately for all of us, doctors, hospitals, and pharmacies aren't going away anytime soon. But for you, as small business owners, it is a wonderful opportunity to get to know the Hospital Corporation of America. At its founding in 1968, Nashville‐based Hospital Corporation of America “HCA” was one of the nation's first hospital companies.
We want to give a special thanks to Les Olson Company for the fabulous meeting we had today. It was so great to learn more about this 60-year old, family owned business. What a true Utah success story! Thanks also to Daniella Cherry for making the arrangements for the meeting.
Mark your calendars for some great upcoming events:
USDC members have a wonderful opportunity to meet with one of Utah's most successful businesses: Les Olson Company. Les Olson Company is a family-owned and independently operated business with seven locations from Logan to Las Vegas.
If you are looking for a sure way to get inspired, you need to make plans to attend our Annual Meeting on March 31st. We have scheduled the fabulous Chad Hymas to share his story with us.
