City Electric Supply hosts third North American Managers’ Conference
By Ellen Cools
July 12, 2018 — City Electric Supply (CES) recently hosted the third biannual North American Managers’ Conference (NAMC) in Grapevine, Tex., where more than 1,200 employees converged for three days of learning, celebration and networking.
Previously, this event was only available for branch managers and senior leadership. However, CES decided to extend the invitation this year to operations managers and outside sales representatives in every branch, instead of branch managers (who will instead attend NAMC 2020 in Orlando, Fla.).
Highlights from the event included a private concert from Blues Traveler, a tradeshow hosting 54 vendors, casino night, and networking time with peers and senior leadership. CES also celebrated two retirements in senior leadership.
“This company was built on the fact that you’ll get out of it what you put into it. Bringing everyone together for this event is a massive financial investment into the retention of our employees, but we believe the camaraderie and the opportunity that builds as a result of this cannot be accomplished without having everyone together. We can’t wait to do it all again in 2020!” said Andrew Dawes, Co-COO of CES
