A Place At Home hosted its First Annual Franchise Convention on September 26-28, 2019 at 1415-The Meeting Space in Omaha, Nebraska. We welcomed a powerful group of franchisees, sponsors and speakers from across the country for three days of engaging events, information and networking.
The festivities kicked off with a Welcome Reception at Wilson & Washburn, sponsored by INSPRO and Ideal Payroll Service. Franchisees from Colorado, California, Arizona, Oregon, Arkansas, Texas and Nebraska were able to meet for the first time or catch up with old friends from their APAH training week.
During the convention, President of A Place At Home, Jerod Evanich, welcomed everyone and discussed APAH’s roots. He surprised the group with a video message from Paula Howard, one of the original three founders of APAH. She shared that though she’s retired now, she is so proud of the growth APAH has seen under the leadership of Dustin and Jerod and wished everyone success in their own franchises.
The day was filled with thoughtful and engaging speakers from Hurricane Marketing Enterprises, Clear Care, Volpe Consulting & Accounting Services, and Home Care Compliance. The closing presentation was given by CEO of A Place At Home, Dustin Distefano. Dustin shared statistics on where the company is today and what goals we plan to accomplish going into next year.
After the convention, the team gathered at Get Out: Omaha where they split into two teams and had 60 minutes to get out of a live-action escape room. Both teams made it out with time, even just seconds, to spare! Buzzing with victory, everyone gathered at Upstream Brewing Company for the Awards Dinner sponsored by Volpe Consulting & Accounting Services, to celebrate the success over the past year.
