CEI announced results from the fall back-to-school rush, its most successful sales period to date.
Jul 08    President's Update: June, 2016
Within the past week, you should have received your 2015 ICBA Savings Report. Collectively, we saved over $4,500,000 by using ICBA Preferred Vendor Partners. In addition to generating more margin dollars, I think you’ll see that the Preferred Vendor Partners Program is evolving – adding new product categories, like premium cosmetics, fashion jewelry/accessories, and programs focusing on health and wellness, and bringing in more service-based programs, such as cell phone screen repair and programs to grow your ecommerce business.
Mar 11    President's Update: March, 2016
It is a great honor to serve as your president. I am looking forward to this opportunity and believe ICBA is positioned perfectly to effect change over the coming year. Some have called me crazy to take on this role with a new baby, a new boss, and an upcoming store renovation, but I welcome the challenge!
