Canadian Rental Service, Jan. 29, 2013 – Old friends reacquainted and new friends were made at the CRA Ontario Tabletop Show, held Jan. 19 at the Nottawasaga Inn in Alliston, Ont. Attendance was 113, including 34 exhibitors and 31 rental operators. The Nottawasaga proved to be spacious and comfortable, with an excellent kitchen.
You will recall that last year, working with CPM Manuals, we developed a unique and very important new member benefit. This is a professional, customized Employee Policy Manual available exclusively to our members for only $599.00 which is an 80% saving on the standard commercial price of $2,995.00.
What was an excellent value in 2012 has been improved through the efforts of CPM Manuals last fall. This month they have introduced a new updated version of the manual which now features 157 topic selection (up from 134). As well, many of the existing sections have been added to and enhanced.
For those members who subscribed to the manual last year, a revision kit has been emailed to you. For those who haven’t yet taken advantage of this program, now is the time to do so.
For details, call the Association office or CPM Manuals directly at (604) 294-9789 or (866) 925-9789.
As the philanthropic organization for equipment rental, the ARA Foundation focuses on giving back and aiding the industry. Each year at The Rental Show, the Reception With a Purpose gives attendees their own opportunity to give back to the industry by supporting the Foundation.
This year’s Reception With a Purpose is Tuesday, Feb. 12, in Hall D at The Sands Expo and Convention Center. The highlight of the reception is the seventh annual charity auction, which will feature more than 30 items donated by The Rental Show’s exhibitors.
