UID 2020 Courses
Courses are held from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. each day. Each registrant will receive a notebook at check-in, which will include materials for each session you’ve been assigned. These materials include worksheets, background readings, exercises and suggested action plans. Resource materials are not available for sessions to which you’ve not been assigned. UID is designed to enhance and fortify your knowledge, skills and abilities with a hands-on experience to support immediate application into your work environment.

UID is designed specifically for CEOs, branch managers, sales and marketing managers, purchasing managers, sales personnel, human resources directors, operations managers, manufacturer personnel working with distributors, inventory managers and training managers. Most session descriptions indicate the target audience that would benefit most (job titles, experience, etc.). We suggest you use this as a guide when making your session selections.

Networking is a big part of UID. You’ll have a chance to compare notes with professionals from other distribution-based industries. PEI will host a members-only night for attendees from our association. Watch for details in coming months.
