Forming Peer GroupsMembers of a current peer group will discuss the advantages of forming a peer group. Representatives from the Family Business Institute will discuss their role as mediator in a peer group. This group has been meeting for nearly three years and has had tremendous success.

Shifting From Contractor to Brand BuilderPresented by SPEC MIX, Inc.
Separating your organization from the competition can be easy when you truly have something special to offer your customers. Defining and creating that "special something" starts with how you position and lead your company. This session focuses on all the disciplines of branding that will ultimately bring value to your customers while increasing your company's brand equity—by following professional brand management concepts.
Increasing ProductionLearn from your peers how you can increase your bottom line through techniques that have been tried and tested in the marketplace. A panel of MCAA members will share how they have increased production in their companies and how you can apply what they've learned in yours. This program is part of MCAA's new Peer-to-Peer Educational Series.
