Leverage Your AED Membership This Year

Over the years, I and many members of my team have taken advantage of AED’s conferences and networking events, and we know the value of taking just a few days away from the office to spend time on your professional career and your business.

AED offers a wide selection of conferences and events for every member of your organization. Did you know that as an AED member you receive exclusive pricing on all AED events? We want to make sure you are aware of everything available to you to bring your company and employees to the next level. What events can you expect from AED this year?

Financial/HR Symposium

April 24-26 at the InterContinental Chicago Magnificent Mile in Chicago

Are you a new or experienced financial or HR professional in your company? Are you interested in learning about the threats and opportunities that relate specifically to this industry? The Financial/HR Symposium brings industry experts to you to discuss the most pressing issues for your organization.

Washington Fly-In

June 11-13 at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C.

This year, a new Congress is settling in on Capitol Hill, which means there are new threats, but also unique opportunities to achieve policy successes in Washington. If you want to see robust infrastructure investment, key provisions from the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act made permanent, policies addressing the skilled workforce shortage, and commonsense regulatory policy, come to Washington to push your lawmakers and the administration to support a pro-equipment-industry agenda. There’s too much at stake for your company and the industry not to attend this premier public policy event.

Leadership Conference

August 27-29 at the Hyatt Regency Sonoma Wine Country in Santa Rosa, California

The AED Leadership Conference is designed specifically for attendees to get ahead in their career and accelerate their future in the dealership. No other event will give you more focused expertise on building and optimizing emerging leaders in the construction equipment distribution industry. Attendees will walk away with ideas to implement in their own areas of responsibility and will gain a greater sense of how to become a more effective leader.

The Small Dealer Conference provides a platform for professionals to come together to leverage their membership and address the challenges they are currently facing in their organizations.

This day-and-a-half conference for executives and senior-level managers focuses on current industry trends and the latest issues facing the heavy equipment industry. Gain insights to help you succeed and maximize your profit opportunities.
