Dear Sweeping Industry Professional-

Ranger With Plastic Horse Welcome to this year's WorldSweeper.com coverage of the 2011 National Pavement Exposition, held in Nashville, Tennessee, "Home of Big Plastic Horses," among many other attractions.

Our WorldSweeper.com coverage offers both audio and video coverage of several seminar presenters who had topics of interest to the power sweeping community. Take a look at the outline of each of these, below, along with when our exclusive web and/or audio interview with each will be linked.

Our intent is to bring you the most usable information from NPE 2011. If there was an event or seminar you'd like to have us cover even now, please let me know.

5-Minute 'Synopsis Videos' From NAPSA-Sponsored 2011 'Best Practices' for Contract Sweepers

NAPSA Logo WorldSweeper.com initially provided coverage of NAPSA's 2011 "Best Practices" seminar, as it has done since this seminar was begun several years ago. However, after coverage began we received a written request from NAPSA's President, Kevin Kroeger, asking us to remove it.

In the letter, dated March 23, 2011, Mr. Kroeger expresses on apparent behalf of the NAPSA Board a concern that onsite attendance to the yearly NAPSA-sponsored three-hour seminar will drop if people are able to view the 5-minute topic summations of the topics at WorldSweeper.com after the fact. Specifically, the letter stated: "Publishing video of this event on WorldSweeper.com and YouTube reduces the value of attending the event."

The WorldSweeper position is that the opposite is likely to occur. Specifically, we believe:

1) that WorldSweeper.com readers who were unable to attend NPE 2011 will be more likely to be spurred to attend future Best Practices' seminars in order to participate in the full experience and flow of information, and
2) that our coverage of NAPSA would likely spur increased interest in, and awareness of, the organization itself.

However, we fully respect the NAPSA Board's position. As a result, WorldSweeper.com has removed the series of 5-minute videos from both our NPE 2011 coverage and YouTube.

However, we take issue with a portion of the letter in which it is stated that our Editor, Ranger Kidwell-Ross, was requested not to video these synopses. He has zero recollection that such a request was made. This position is supported by the fact that the videotaping occurred from a front-row vantage point in full view of, and knowledge of, all participants. Yet, it was allowed to continue without comment or request to discontinue throughout the taping of all seminar summations. If you are interested knowing more, the letter from NAPSA to WorldSweeper.com, as well as our response, are available here.

We have left the topics that were included in the seminar linked below, so that those who were unable to attend will have an idea of what they missed at this year's 3-hour NAPSA-sponsored NPE seminar.

Passing Your Company to the Next Generation

Mark Carter moderated the topic that considered factors to consider in passing your company on to the next generation in your family.
