From the President

I hope this letter finds everyone doing well and looking forward to the spring season and the return to warm weather. I want to thank all of the members for showing their support at the February meeting and trade show. Congratulations to Teddy Poulos for winning the 3D Pro Xtreme Key Machine. Thank you to Jackie Bright for a wonderful trade show, she did an awesome job.

NCLAI would like to keep a good thing going and build on our success. We need to strive to have all the education classes filled. We are working hard to provide you with quality teachers and classes. There will be a paid 4 hour class called Extreme Customer Service plus Creative Marketing and an 8 hour class by Kaba Ilco. You will want to sign up and pay for this class before the May 2nd deadline. Remember to register early as space is limited.

To avoid the long lines don't forget to preregister. If you are planning to arrive early on Friday remember to preregister ahead of time so you can pick up your registration slip during the board meeting from the secretary's assistant. If you have not preregistered or you have questions you will have to wait until the board meeting is over and the secretary is available to assist you. Dues were due in February, make sure you are current when you register. If not, you may pay your dues by mailing a check or calling Debbie Derruisseaux to pay by credit card when you register.


I hope to see everyone at the next meeting in Cary May 9th, 10th and 11th at the Embassy Suites Raleigh-Durham Research Triangle Hotel. The address is 201 Harrison Oaks Blvd Cary, NC 27513. Must register 919-677-1840 “In house reservations” by April 12th the rate should be $124. Don't forget to bring your yard sale items for the Spring flea market. We won't have another until the fall. Thank you for all your support and I look forward to seeing you all. If you need to reach me feel free to email paul@marshallslocks.com.
