“….the training on Wednesday was absolutely fantastic!  To see that level of support, investment and partnership from National IPA to our sellers blew me away.  We have always had a great partnership, but I am more optimistic than ever that we can accelerate our growth and our mutual customer relationships.  Awesome job!”
