The convenience store industry’s exclusive organization for next-generation leaders and up-and-coming decision makers will hold its annual roundtable May 24-25 at Maverik’s Base Camp headquarters in Salt Lake City. A special team-building Habitat for Humanity project just for YEO Members will take place on May 23 in Provo, Utah.
The Young Executives Organization (YEO) is headed to Maverik.
Registration has officially opened for the fourth annual YEO Roundtable to be hosted by Maverik Stores at its new state-of-the-art Base Camp in Salt Lake City. The roundtable will take place May 24-25 and is free to all NAG and YEO members.
In addition to networking and a firsthand tour of Base Camp, Maverik’s test kitchen, training facilities and convenience stores, YEO’s will hear how the chain nurtures its outstanding retail culture, communicates with customers through its industry-leading loyalty program and tackles foodservice, staffing and developing its convenience store operations.
As a special feature for this year’s roundtable, participants, Maverik will have a special opportunity to work on a Habitat for Humanity home build in Provo, Utah.
Habitat for Humanity is a volunteer organization that helps families in need of safe and affordable housing. The YEO/Maverik team will assist in the construction of a new home on Tuesday, May 23. No construction experience is necessary. Habitat for Humanity will provide all tools, materials and safety equipment. Because this is an active construction site, participation is limited to 12 volunteers per shift. If you would like to participate in this exclusive YEO team-building experience, please indicate the shift in which you are interested during the registration process.
“YEO is extremely proud to be partnering with Maverik to learn more about how a great convenience store chain has created a world-class retail culture,” said John Lofstock, executive director of the National Advisory Group (NAG). “Following up on the successful roundtables we’ve had at Family Express and RaceTrac Petroleum, I’m sure our members will have a wonderful experience that will help them grow personally and professionally.”
Registration for the 2017 YEO Roundtable and the Habitat for Humanity team-building project will open in early January and is free for all NAG and YEO members. If you have any questions about NAG, YEO or membership, please contact NAG Executive Director John Lofstock at [email protected].
