SEMINARS & PROGRAMS

Active Shooter: Escape, Barricade, Protect – Are you prepared for an active shooter emergency at your business? Do you know what steps to take to protect your employees and customers? Join Green Bay Police Officer Jon Nejedlo for his active shooter presentation: Escape, Barricade, Protect. This classroom-only seminar will provide attendees with important concepts that will increase awareness and help improve safety.

E-15 & Biofuels Update – This panel will discuss the ins and outs of why you should consider E15 as a fuel option at your store and make it clear just how simple it is to add this exciting new fuel to your pumps.

Screening, Hiring, and Retaining Employees – A company’s hiring and employee retention practices communicate a lot about its culture. Many employers agree that bringing qualified applicants into their business is one of their primary challenges, and today’s competitive employment market can make it even harder to land top talent. This discussion focuses on ways to find quality applicants in your industry, establish strong and consistent hiring practices, and reinforces the value of continuous recruiting and employee retention to distinguish you as an "employer of choice."

UST Update & Best Practices for Inspection – Inspections don't need to be a hassle, and DATCP staff will guide you through rule changes and inspection procedure. Greg Baretta will present on the upcoming ATCP 93 Code revision. Alicia Clark will follow with A/B/C operator changes, then Keith Garbe will discuss best practices for inspections.

General Session: Decrypting Media Hype—Trends Effecting Future Markets – Headlines declare the revolutionary pace of change affecting the transportation energy market, particularly with respect to electric vehicles and the fate of internal combustion engines. But, does the hype reflect reality? What is the realistic expected pace of change in transportation energy? What would the impact of an adjustment in CAFÉ standards mean for OEM advancements in fuel efficiency? How would these adjustments affect fuel demand versus previous projections? Donovan Woods will meld research from the Fuels Institute with third-party analyses and share his perspective on the pace of change and factors that could influence the market.

NACS: The Future of Convenience is Frictionless – This presentation will provide attendees an understanding of ways convenience and fuel retailers are improving service by saving customers time and reducing "friction." Attendees also get a glimpse into real-time examples of "frictionless convenience retailing" from around the globe.
