Executive Director Report
By: Jon Meijer

The Mid-West Drycleaning & Laundry Institute is excited to announce our annual convention “Facing the Future Together” is coming to French Lick, IN on August 4-6, 2023. This will be our first in-person convention since the pandemic, and we are excited to bring this opportunity to our members. “It’s been too long”, stated, Jon Meijer, Executive Director MWDLI. “Zoom meetings are great and all but there is nothing quite like being amongst friends and likeminded business owners and operators.”

 

“Facing the Future Together” will explore new possibilities to help your business grow and prosper moving forward. “The pandemic has dramatically changed the industry and the way we do business. This will be a unique opportunity to learn from some of the most respected experts the industry has to offer”, stated MWDLI President, Tim Day”. The convention will feature David Coyle from In the Bag Cleaners and Maverick Marketing, Jen Whitmarsh from Snappy Drycleaning and The Route Pro, and Peter Blake, Executive Director for NEFA, SEFA and MAC.

One of the greatest benefits of membership and conferences like these are the chances to network, learn from your peers, connect with old friends, and meet new ones. The convention will be held at the highly loved, French Lick Resort and will include a cocktail reception, group dinner, and auction. Attendees can also play golf, gamble, and dine at the many restaurants located at the resort. Over the next several weeks, you will be receiving detailed information regarding the convention with special room rates for the hotels.
