“For me three impressions from MACMA's 30th Anniversary Conference standout: *First, the "big time" level of energy, knowledge, and talent of participants, Staff, Board, Speakers and Vendors *Second, the continuing importance of company owners and managers (even in this day of instant social and knowledge content) fostering face to face time for their staff away from their businesses*Third, that MACMA is still around and improving 30 years after its inception - a reminder that long term organizational and personal success usually takes "grinding it out" by focusing on the right questions, talking you answers through, and executing so the ball is moved ahead."
Roger Ralph, Founder of Hockessin Athletic Club and Bel Air Athletic Club
“I absolutely loved the training I attended with Mark Miller. His approach is different than any other Sales Training I've attended over
the past 10 years. No lugging a thick binder of material home from
the training class (never to open again). I appreciated being a part
of a round table and all the interaction, practical exercises, and meaningful
conversation that came along with it. Mark gets it. You don't feel like you're
in a pre-packaged session that's taught the same way over and over again
(regardless of the changing competitive landscape) with him. He acknowledges
"real world" obstacles that need to be overcome in the sales world,
and gives amazing tools to do so. I look forward to attending many more MACMA
workshops in the near future.”

“The networking possibilities are endless. Individuals or groups can benefit greatly, especially the “small guy.” I am constantly learning from my many new constituents and resonsbilities with the Association.”

"I thought last week's annual conference was the best yet! The keynote speakers were outstanding; and we loved how you broke up the tracks into management, fitness/PT and sales/marketing. Everyone from our club who attended gave me positive feedback and came back "pumped"... especially the personal trainers who do not normally get to attend a "business" conference. Your team did an outstanding job. Thank you!"
Laurie Haines, Marketing Director, Universal Athletic Club, Lancaster, PA
