Our Inaugural East Coast Power Event held on October 16 through 18th in Atlantic City, NJ. The goal for this event was to bring our East Coast members together and encourage further networking, gain knowledge and most importantly, have fun!

Wednesday night consisted of initial gathering and cocktail hour introductions. Our main day, Thursday, was jam packed with energy and excitement. There were over 20 awesome Showboaters who came from New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Planning and bringing the event together was our East Coast VP, Paul Della Valle. Our main session was hosted by our MC, West Coast VP, Doug Christian. We had introductions, awards and a great main speaker, Erick “Mr. Awesome” Swanson, a nationally known speaker who talked about creating habits along with a great attitude to have success “Habitudes”! Wow was the energy up in the room during this speech. One great take-away for members was a simple 4 letters that everyone received on dog tags – NDSO “No Drama Serve Others”.
