Dear Members,

Over the last few months, the meaning of Community here at AA-ISP has taken on a deeper significance and evolution. Traditionally, our community of sales professionals gather in-person at a variety of Conferences, Retreats, Chapter Meetings, company training sessions and more.

In early 2020 that all changed.

As the COVID-19 situation intensified, the team was faced with the unfortunate reality that our flagship event, the 12th Annual Leadership Summit 2020 would not be possible in April. Our dedicated community of sales professionals and proud sponsors stood by us and we all pivoted into an August reschedule date.

In the meantime, we brought the community the "Road to the Summit" virtual series including roundtables, webinars, case studies, hands-on workshops, and Team Day chats. Our Chapter Leaders stepped up in a huge way and transitioned all in-person Chapter meetings to virtual events. We temporarily unlocked our entire Resource Center to help the millions of salespeople now stuck at home and in need of relevant tools and best practices as they navigated this new virtual world. The AA-ISP couldn't be prouder of the way this community has come together.

As we approach the summer months, our world continues to address COVID-19. Although some gradual "re-opening" has occurred, large gatherings like the Leadership Summit in August and Sales World 2020 this Fall are not realistic. The team has listened to the advice of our Board, many proud sponsors, and registered attendees and for the safety of our community, we must fully pivot once again.

We are saddened to announce that the in-person 2020 Leadership Summit and the Sales World 2020 series have been cancelled and will be reimagined as one all-encompassing and massive AA-ISP Virtual Sales Summit, taking place the week of September 14th, 2020.

The AA-ISP is excited and energized to bring the community together at this Virtual Sales Summit, along with other e-learning and development opportunities throughout the rest of 2020! Although we cherish the day that we come back together at in-person events, we remain steadfast in our vision and mission to help take "Inside Sales to the Next Level of Professionalism and Performance."

Although "in-person" events are temporarily on hold, AA-ISP’s strategy and virtual offerings have evolved quickly, enabling the continuation of our mission! As a community we must continue to embrace and invest in the AA-ISP as the global leader in the inside/digital/virtual sales world.

As we move through this period together, we ask each person and organization to consider the following:

  • Investing in your team’s development through an AA-ISP Inside Sales Academy. A new program called The Certificate in Virtual Sales is now available. It is short, relevant and hits the new skills needed for both reps and leaders in this “new normal” of virtual sales.

  • If you are a proud AA-ISP sponsor, consider our new wide range of virtual marketing opportunities such as Executive Briefings/Case Studies, Roundtables, the upcoming Virtual Sales Summit, and many others.

  • Continue to take advantage of all virtual Roundtables, Case Studies, Webinars that are happening each and every week throughout 2020.

Together, our community will continue to thrive during this difficult time!
