Editor’s Note

A Matter of Perspective

By Steve Guglielmo The First Quarter Issue is always really interesting to put together and read. I first started writing for The MHEDA Journal in the First Quarter 2010 when the industry was still neck-deep in the recession. Then, 6 or 7 percent growth would have warranted a parade. But this year, in speaking with MHEDA dealers, it seems like ...

Learning the Important Lessons

By Steve Guglielmo Learning is always something that interested me. I’m fascinated to hear what “learning style” people prefer (for me, I’m definitely a visual learner) and to hear about important lessons that people learned along the way.

Longevity and Quality: A Recipe for Success

By Steve Guglielmo, Managing Editor The 3rd Quarter Issue of The MHEDA Journal is always the most interesting of the year to me because it is the issue where we recognize MHEDA members celebrating milestone anniversaries and also distributors named by manufacturers as being the “Best of the Best.” One thing that I have noticed over the years is that ...

The Social Convention

By Steve Guglielmo, Managing Editor Every year at the MHEDA Convention, I ask attendees what they enjoy most about attending Convention. And while there are always a variety of answers, one response that is almost ubiquitous is the networking opportunities Convention provides. Whether the networking comes from the Exhibitors’ Showcase, the Roundtable discussions or even the Sunday morning golf tournament, Convention ...

Looking Back, Looking Forward

By Steve Guglielmo, Managing Editor As MHEDA celebrates its 60th Anniversary in 2014, a large portion of each issue of The MHEDA Journal will be spent discussing the changes and evolution that the industry has gone through since 1954. When you think back to what the world and the industry looked like 60 years ago, it’s almost unrecognizable. But as ...
