Drew and Dave Garcia Participate in NALP’s LEADERS FORUM, Punta Cana Dominican Republic

Author, Drew Garcia, NALP Program Director, Rancho Mesa Insurance Services, Inc.

This was our first experience attending the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) LEADERS Forum, and it will now be an annual “can’t miss” event.  The breakout discussions were presented by Sean Martin of Boston College University and Erica Dawson of Cornell University.  The speakers addressed common industry topics such as working with employees from different backgrounds and leadership decision making.

I’m so impressed with the vision and execution of the event, NALP did an incredible job finding a beautiful location and putting together an incredible agenda.  The association creates these focused networking and training events that attracts some of the strongest voices and leaders that the green industry has to offer.

While I work on the risk management side of business, my industry is without a doubt landscaping.  Working with landscape professionals and helping the industry grow is a true passion of mine.  At Rancho Mesa, we look forward to contributing our time, expertise, and overall enthusiasm to help OUR industry, the landscape industry, continue to evolve.
