2019 Train the Trainer

Our annual Train the Trainer was held on March 16 and 17, in Boise, Idaho.  Trackers from Massachusetts to Washington State to Canada to California – and most places in between – gathered to learn and share information about our program.  We thank all of those who took their time and money to make sure that they were stellar representatives of our program.  Many of our trainers were unable to attend due to the monster storm that passed through the country leading up to and during our training.
Thank you Dan Scovel, our President, for the use of your company’s facility, Hayden Beverage Company, in Boise, Idaho.
