Canadian Rental Association
Young professionals are the future of our industry and developing next year’s leaders, as well as leadership for decades to come, is something about which all associations including the Canadian Rental Association spend a considerable amount of time thinking.
On July 19 the Canadian Rental Association executive committee was in Moline, Ill., at the American Rental Association office meeting with the ARA board of directors and staff in order to provide a Canadian perspective into the development of the latest iteration of the ARA strategic plan.
ARA Rentalytics has officially been relaunched. The forecast calls for equipment and event rental revenue in Canada to total $5.4 billion in 2018 and grow each year to reach $6.3 billion in 2022.
July 5, 2018 - For the first time in more than 40 years, The American Rental Association (ARA) proudly unveils a new brand identity to reflect the evolution of the equipment and event rental industry. The move is part of an extensive branding initiative designed to carry the association forward in better serving its members and representing a community of equipment and event rental professionals.
As we head into summer and activity at our rental operations shifts into high gear the staff and volunteer leaders of the Canadian Rental Association begin to regroup and plan for the upcoming year. With trade show season behind us for another year, we can all begin to look ahead.
According to the American Express Global Customer Service Barometer, customers will tell an average of nine people about good experiences and nearly twice as many (16 people) about poor ones.
I want to start this column by thanking those of you reading this that have made the choice to become members of the Canadian Rental Association. Our association is strong because of members like you who make the choice to join us.
Most of us have an idea where we want to get to. Some even have a generic mission statement that reads something like “XYZ Rentals strives to become the best rental company in our market.” But how many of us have taken the time to think through appropriate measures that will allow us to measure where we are, and how far we have come? Vision statements were all the rage in every business a while back.
Change. If you’re not familiar with that word, I’m sure a quick Google search should give you plenty of funny memes (or inspirational quotes, if that’s your thing), so I won’t bother adding one here.
Jill Holtsman of Hub City Displays and Event Rentals in Saskatoon, Sask., has been elected Region 10 director on the 2018 American Rental Association board. She replaces James Morden of Rentshop in Allliston, Ont., who steps down after serving in the position for three years.
