Letter from the Executive Vice President

All SWA Membership,


I am so excited to report we had an amazing celebration and attendance for the 90th Annual SWA convention held at the Hammock Beach Resort June 24-26th.  We had the unique opportunity to honor and embrace 18 SWA Past presidents that attended this convention!  We again broke records in attendance.  We had 825 people attend the SWA convention.  Delegates, spouses and kids found the convention to be relaxing, valuable and an incredible time to reunite with each other; as well as meet new friends.  We had multiple generations of SWA attendees collaborating and reminiscing throughout the convention.

We must thank all the faithful SWA sponsors for supporting the convention!  We need to especially thank the Wholesaler Magazine for assisting us in putting together an amazing commemorative 90 years of SWA book.  We have a few left, so if you would like your owe copy, please let us know.  We are also grateful for the Supply House Times choosing to highlight SWA on their May cover.  Our media friends have out done themselves this year and we are so thankful for their continued support!

If you missed this year, please plan to attend the 91st convention on Amelia Island June 23-25, 2019.  Registrations and hotel reservations will begin in December.  Amelia Island has so much to offer our association.   Many of our attendees have raved about Amelia Island.  It has a unique accommodations options.  Please begin to look over the options and plan for your convention experience.  Plan to bring the family.  The main hotel is set up as a 4 diamond hotel with 404 direct oceanfront rooms.  For those of you bringing the family, we have secured 2 and 3 bedroom villas on the plantation grounds.  Although they are not directly attached to the main hotel, the villas are Spacious and located within the interior of the resort, at various distances from the beach, with forested, golf course or lake views. This villa type includes a living room, dining room, and kitchen .  Bus service runs free of charge throughout the plantation grounds.  The Island is truly an adventure and pleasure to enjoy.


Mansfield Plumbing Products just graciously hosted a Tour and Educational Seminar August 29th.  The LDC organized an amazing event.  Approximately 25 people attended.  They enjoyed a tour bus ride from Nashville to Cleveland, Mansfield Plumbing Products Tour, the ASA University module “Essentials of Leadership” and an Indians Baseball game.

Upcoming is NETWORK ASA being held in Scottsdale, AZ October 31-November 2nd.  The SWA Board of Directors, Mechanical Products Council and the Leadership Development Council will be meeting, in Nashville, December 11th for business and a Predators hockey game.  If there Is anything we can do for you, please contact us anytime.
