Dear CDANA Dealers & Associate Members, 
san diego
On behalf of the CDANA Board and Convention Committee, we would like to cordially invite you to attend the 2019 CDANA Convention & Product Fair at the Manchester Grand Hyatt on March 21-24, 2019 in San Diego, CA!

This past year, we achieved record attendance at our convention in Orlando and we want 2019 to be bigger and better than ever before! In San Diego, we will be celebrating our brand Culligan Water and the system being "THE BEST OF THE BEST" in the water treatment industry! We remain committed to growing our brand recognition, further increasing our expertise in being water problem solvers, becoming more effective at the turn-key customer service experience, and so much more!

The Convention Committee, CDANA Board, and Culligan International are creating an educational program that is extremely robust. In fact, this convention will have more education packed in one program than we have ever seen before. Some of the topics will include the following (with more to be announced):

  • Hall of Fame Panel Discussion - Unlocking their Sales Secrets
  • Top Growth Winners/Best Practices
  • Selling Payments to Greatly Increase Your Sales
  • Modern Office (Update on Live Chat, Texting, Email, etc. with the Customer)
  • Vendor Talks - Updates from Vendors on their Products/Services
  • Difference Between Being a Leader and Being a Manager
  • C&I Success Stories & Best Practices
  • Growing POU & Bottled Water
  • Transferring Ownership - What actually takes place?
  • CDANA Community Lab and Workshop
  • Rapid Fire Sessions on Move In/Move Out, Referral Programs, Event Marketing, Strategic Partnerships, Etc.
  • CDANA Next Generation Project Updates & these projects are EXCITING!
  • Much more to come!

After visiting San Diego to plan the convention, we have determined the top San Diego MUST DO LIST for the Culligan System!

GET OUTSIDE - Bask in the sunny warm breezes, take a dip in the cool blue Pacific tide, watch the dolphins surf the waves, and feel your muscles and mind unwind. We know it may be snowing at home and you need a break from that mess. Who better to enjoy the 2019 CDANA Welcome Reception by the pool that looks over the San Diego downtown skyline and the San Diego Bay - YOU!

MAKE YOUR MOVE - Practice your backhand, swing your nine-iron, hike a secret trail, surf the legendary waves, paddle a kayak, or simply peddle along the waterfront to experience San Diego's Great outdoors. Did we mention that the hotel is located directly on the bay? In addition, Dealer and Associate members will have the opportunity to sign up for one of our amazing optional outings - The 2019 CDANA High Spirits Hornblower Sunset Cruise or the 2019 CDANA Ye Parched Pub Crawler in the world-famous Gaslamp Quarter!

LAUGH OUT LOUD - Watch a giant panda topple about, see dolphins splash in crowds, catch a comedy act, and let the stillness overtake your senses. Hanging out with the Culligan crowd via the social events offered through the convention or just mingling in the bar or by the pool always provides a good dose of laughter and entertainment!
Dream Big
DREAM BIG - Gather inspiration from exhibits on everything from fine art to outer space in Balboa Park's museums to the exhibits in the 2019    CDANA Product Fair. In addition to what San Diego has to offer, take the education you have learned and increase your dreams for your business, your family, and yourself. THE BEST OF THE BEST ALWAYS DREAM BIG!

PARTY ON - Dance on the rooftop bars, swing in the jazz clubs, sing along with the popular bands, or let yourself revel at the most beautiful sunsets on the 23-mile protected and smooth San Diego Bay!

CULLIGAN AWARDS BANQUET ON THE USS MIDWAY - Culligan International is sponsoring an Awards Event of historic proportions aboard the USS Midway. The Culligan Family will have the USS Midway entirely for our group to explore, learn, and celebrate the best water treatment system in North America, recognize top winners in the system, enjoy some of San Diego's best entertainment, and make memories that will last a lifetime!

There you have it. Let's get registered. The celebration of Culligan Water: THE BEST OF THE BEST is in high gear and we cannot wait to see all of you March 21-24, 2019 in sunny San Diego, CA!
