2012-06-01 NABD Announces BHPH Boot Camp August 18-19, 2012

Houston, Texas – The National Alliance of Buy Here Pay Here Dealers (NABD) announced today that they will hold a BHPH boot camp in Monroe, North Carolina (a suburb of Charlotte) on August 18-19, 2012.

The boot camp will provide hands-on training for attendees who are entering the industry, and those who have limited or no experience. All of the training sessions will be held at the facilities of iCars which is owned and operated by Ingram Walters and is one of the nation’s most successful BHPH operations.

“This boot camp will allow attendees to actually see and learn about the BHPH best practices at the same time,” said Ken Shilson, CPA and NABD founder. “We have constructed a comprehensive agenda which will address all of the key financial and operational aspects of running a successful BHPH business.”

All training sessions will be conducted by Ingram Walters and Ken Shilson, who have successfully conducted annual NABD BHPH conferences for 14 years. The boot camp is ideally suited for franchise dealers who wish to diversify into the BHPH industry or for independent dealers who wish to avoid the fatal pitfalls of a BHPH start-up.

Attendees at this 2-day event will receive a comprehensive procedures manual, an employee handbook, projection software and other valuable reference materials. “A modest investment of time and money can make attendees millions of dollars!” Shilson said.

Attendance will be limited to a maximum of approximately ten dealerships and each dealership is asked to bring 1 or 2 people. Attendees living outside of North Carolina, should plan to fly into Charlotte and make a short drive to Monroe, NC where convenient hotel accommodations are available.

NABD also announced that it will again hold an East Coast National BHPH Conference in Atlanta, Georgia on October 21-23, 2012. The same event last year had more than 800 attendees and was held at the same location in partnership with the Georgia Independent Dealers Association (GIADA).
