2014 Executive Development Retreat

Sponsored by the Young Executive Forum (YEF), the Executive Development Retreat is open to all ISA members and non-members.

The 2014 ISA Executive Development Retreat was held July 15-17, 2014 in Austin, TX at the InterContinental Stephen F. Austin. The EDR started with a networking lunch followed by a community outreach project at the East Austin Boys & Girls Club.  Attendees participated in numerous activities including games, arts & crafts, and even an obstacle course!  ISA and YEF then presented the club with a check for $2,000!

Attendees spent the remaining days of the EDR participating in two very informative sessions.  The first session was a presentation by speaker Steve McClatchy.  The presentation was titled "Work Smarter, Reduce Your Stress, and Lead by Example."  This session provided attendees with suggestions and tools on how to focus on results and the true drivers of performance, regain critical planning and personal time, and dramatically increase work/life engagement.

The second EDR session was a panel discussion led by Michael Carr of Snap-on Industrial, Jack Templin of Affiliated Distributors, and Tommy Thompson of Turner Supply Co.  This panel discussion involved high participation from the audience and informed everyone on the different career paths within the industrial supply industry, how to balance your career with your personal life,and the different tools your peers and ISA have to offer to help you advance.

ISA and the Young Executive Forum would like to thank everyone who made this year’s Executive Development Retreat possible!
