The Voice of the AHLC
MESSAGE FROM THE AHLC BOARD BIGGEST CONFERENCE EVER? YOU BETCHA! SUSAN KETTERING, AHLC EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, HRI OF PENNSYLVANIA, PITTSBURGH Our goal for our Annual Conference each year is to create an event which will be most beneficial advantageous to our members. So, after speaking directly with much of our membership, going over post-conference surveys and AHLC Forum discussions, here’s a summary of what you wanted and we listened!
• Education is important. But QUALITY of education matters most. • Classes are for educating. The Vendor Floor is for selling. • More Hands-on Demonstrations, How-To’s and Q&A • Classroom Demonstrations will be broadcast on the big screen so everyone can see every detail without leaving their seat. • Business Classes: Including Marketing, Advertising, Best Practices, and even Salon Management Software • Help with Technical Issues with Practical Advice I can Understand • More Men’s Systems and Products • More Women’s Systems and Products

Each of these issues, have been addressed and as such, makes for a better Conference experience for us all. I’d also like to point-out, that our Conference belongs to each us. Every AHLC member plays an essential part; each attendee, each vendor, each educator, and each of our invaluable volunteer staff, committee and board members. Our Conference, like our association is and always has been a collaborative effort. And like most things, we’re better when we work together.
AHLC Board of Directors Joseph Ellis, President Susan Kettering, Executive Director Marsha Scott, Past President
One of our vendors pointed out (on page 28) that they felt like our conference is “Like my Family Reunion.” We couldn’t agree more.
Janine Thornhill, Administrator
We look forward to seeing each member of our Hair Restoration Family again, spending time together, catching up and learning to be better, for each of our clients... together.
