Roundtable Host 2009
Been invitational only for months, check it out its all over the boards. I dont understand what happened here? are MY med screwed up?
Kris this is not an invite only event........ What your seeing is the same usual crew bashing something positive.....So after many calls it was decided to make it like most events are where it's first come first serve. So if your interested, when we give the hotel block out and the pay link you can take it from there.
Real good Scott.. Very professional. I'll leave it at that.John, you and your crew are pathological liars. I thought better of you then this. This is the first hint that it was anything but an invitation event. How else can you explain that someone needs to send an email to a committee to see if they are accepted to come this event?
Really, you need to get your meds checked becaus ether are seriously clouding your thinking.
The flyer explains it.. Nothing else to add here and believe me Guy knows what the initial concerns were. He also knows today that it's first come first serve.. So that answers What Guy already knows and anyone else such as Kris may have not.John that's not true and you know it. I will not call what you said "Lie" but will let the posted words from the Head of the event and your words speak for themselves. Then guys like Kris can make up their own mind and interpret this the way they read it.
Quote from event Head......"I am sure you will be given the same consideration that we give everyone else.
Just a note, just because you ask to attend, does not mean you automatically are invited. ALL requests to attend will be discussed by the committee.
Guy, we see your request on Jan 1 at 4:44 PM.
Thank you for the request. "
Quoted by you John...........
"Guy understands the committee process on how people will be selected to go to this event. I explained this on a few bulletin boards. In case anyone else needs to know since we booked a small venue in one heck of a nice hotel,
Since we are keeping this small so all attendees can "work" the Equipment, if we get over inundated with emails of people wanted to go each Vegas parking Garage committee member will take all those names on their own and pick 20-25 people. Then we throw our names in together and if let's say in Guys case 2 committee members pick him and only 1 picks Chris Chappel for example then Guy gets first crack at going. If we don't hit enough people wanting to go then Chris Chappel gets an automatic invite since he emailed already as well."
Quoted by the event chairman...........
"This event and the committee formed is to provide a fair selection of newbies and guys who have been in the field for a very long time. There is not one person, including me, who can veto the committee's decision as a whole. That is why it was formed.
There was one rule from the beginning, and that was how the contractor conducted yourself on the net. If every other post was to attack someone or try to belittle them or whatever you think is a negative attack was, then that still would not totally eliminated them, but would be an issue that the committee would look at very closely. We want professionals at this event, new and old. Not a bunch of internet bullies...We want to reward those who conduct themselves professionally on the net. Disagreements happen, but insulting, belittling or just being a internet bully is not allowed. Does that make sense?"
Now this is where it gets interesting...note the reference to bullying, attacking and conduct on the net.....now read his very next quote......I swear I'm not making this up!!!
"FOR THOSE Want to know whats at this event.....
Look it, this is going to be a great event. Equipment from not just one, but many manufactures will be there. Your going to learn about what the EPA calls " there 2nd five year plan". Go ask the UAMCC what that is, no ask them to show you in writing on the net....They do not know because they are not Robert Hinderliter. That alone is worth the price to attend. I want you to Think about this carefully......you will have up coming information that your competitors do not have. What does that mean to your company? Think about that real hard.....
Others have asked " How do I do this in a Parking Garage? I can answer that....
What about Gas Stations, the new laws coming out for discharge....What do these new laws say about you able to dump it in a car wash drain or landscape ?
Why I should or should not go through a Property Manager for Parking Garage Work...
Having a National guest speaker at the event...
Giving to non profits to help others....
The list goes on and on....
and you know what...NO ONE has every provided so much information for a event that I am aware of.
We are going to exceed all past Round Table events from what I am told. You are not there to party, but to really learn something so that you can make real money with the knowledge you obtain at the event, not just learning how to put a candy jar on the companies operator desk so they might call you a year later for that one time 100 dollar job. When has an operator every signed a work related contract is what I want to know."
I know a bunch of guys that do $100 jobs...I know a bunch of guys that use candy jars as a way of marketing........Sound "Elitist" to you? Who's attacking, bullying and belittling?????
No where on the net will you find anything that says this event was "First Come First Serve" which means "First To Respond Gets In" That's not the case John and you know it.
The flyer explains it.. Nothing else to add here and believe me Guy knows what the initial concerns were. He also knows today that it's first come first serve.. So that answers What Guy already knows and anyone else such as Kris may have not.
Real good Scott.. Very professional. I'll leave it at that.
Never said I was lying. It's not my nature. What's in my nature is not to have others be judgmental enough to decide who I should be friendly with. You should think about that.At least you were honest enough to not deny lying. As for professional, if I said anything that held you to a standard that we all try to achieve, you would question my professionalism. It is a shame really, you are capable of so much more then hanging with the group you are choosing.
Hey Mike- look for the finished flyer coming out in a few days. On there it will have the hotel block info and the pay link to the event. That's your ticket in. Hope to cya there.(smile)I've been checking my emails daily waiting for an invite and still nothing...... Was actually looking for an excuse to go to Vegas!
