“Being a member of an organization like IITA is an invaluable resource for a company like ours. Their annual Summit is something that I look forward to every year because it not only allows us the opportunity to interact with the top suppliers from all over the United States but also provides top notch educational sessions and the chance to network with the best of the best in our industry. All of these reasons are why ‘I’m an Inbound Insider.’”
