Duro-Last Finalizing Plans For 2009 National Sales Seminar

Duro-Last Roofing, Inc. will hold its 2009 National Sales Seminar January 25-27 at the Hilton Daytona Beach Ocean Walk Village in Daytona Beach, Florida. This annual event honors authorized Duro-Last roofing contractors for their sales achievements during the previous year, and includes several educational sessions that cover a variety of roofing and business management topics. This year’s Seminar will also feature guest speakers Jim Pancero, Paul Montelongo, and Mark Scharenbroich. All are noted presenters and authors, and have extensive corporate training experience.

The theme of the 2009 Sales Seminar is Above & Beyond, which captures the spirit of Duro-Last’s contractor network. In a year with multiple national economic challenges, many of them in the construction area, our contractors have continued to demonstrate a solid commitment both to Duro-Last sales opportunities and to providing exceptional service to their customers. We take great pride in honoring them at this event.

In recent years, one of the most popular Seminar activities has been the Roofers’ Challenge, in which small contractor installation teams compete against one another to see which team can install a Duro-Last roof the fastest and with the highest quality. To prepare for this event, Duro-Last authorized contractor Damschroder Construction, LLC of Fremont, Ohio, is conducting its own roofer’s challenge. The best Damschroder two-man installation team will receive a free trip to the Duro-Last Sales Seminar to compete against teams from all over the United States. Owner Dave Damschroder clearly takes the Duro-Last Roofers’ Challenge seriously: “We see this as a great opportunity to encourage our installers to realize their important part in the big picture of building customer satisfaction while having a great experience at the Seminar!”

We’re looking forward to seeing Dave, his crew, and hundreds of other Duro-Last contractors in Daytona in January.
