2017-05-02 AN Open Letter To All NABD Members - From Ken Shilson
Dear NABD Member,

     You already know how competitive our industry has been during the last 24 months and that competition has brought changes in the BHPH business.  The old ways don't work like they used to; so we must implement some new operating practices.  At our 19th Annual National Conference at the fabulous Wynn / Encore on May 23 - 25, we will help you adapt to these new challenges with creative ideas, tips and information for success.  The conference theme is the "Changing World of BHPH and NABD".

     NABD is changing too!  After nineteen great years we are now developing a succession plan on how NABD will continue in the future.  In January, I celebrated my 68th birthday and realized that my successor is needed to guide NABD and to represent the best interests of the BHPH industry.  NABD has engaged an outside professional to help formulate a strategic transition plan and to identify qualified successors.  We are in the final stages of this process and we want to meet with you at NABD 2017 and get your input.

     Our members and sponsors are NABD!  We care about their participation and success.  Therefore we invite all our members to attend NABD 2017 on May 23 - 25, and to enjoy Wynn / Encore and Las Vegas this year.  Visit our website at for updates.  It will be much easier to embrace the changes ahead if we do it together.

     I hope to see all of you on May 23rd.

Kenneth Shilson
President / Founder
