Happy Birthday to Top Echelon Network
In our previous blog post, Drea Codispoti invited you to party with us in New Orleans for the upcoming Top Echelon National Convention. Well, there’s another reason that you should party with us. It’s our birthday!
That’s right, Top Echelon is celebrating its 31st birthday on Friday, March 8. (Which, incidentally, also happens to the last day of Regular Registration for the National Convention.)
Fun birthday facts from 1988
March 8, 1988 is considered the official birth date of Nationwide Interchange Service (NIS). What does that have to do with anything? Well, NIS was the first name for Top Echelon.
As many of you know, NIS was the first name for Top Echelon. It was changed from NIS to Top Echelon in 1998, as part of our 10-year anniversary.
March 8, 1988 is the day that Top Echelon founder Mike Kappel sent out the first Pinnacle newsletter. That’s right, The Pinnacle has been published every single week for the past 31 years now, in one form or another.
To put things into a historical perspective, we thought we would provide the following information about the year 1988, courtesy of mybirthdayfacts.com. In 1988, the:
- Number-one pop song was “Never Gonna Give You Up” by Rick Astley.
- Number-one move was Good Morning, Vietnam.
- Median new home price was $108,900.
- Price of a new car was $13,761.
- Price of a gallon of gas was 96 cents.
- Price of a loaf of bread was 59 cents.
A shameless AND true plug
Obviously, everything costs a LOT more these days. But do you know what hasn’t been increasing a lot during the last couple of decades? Registration for Top Echelon’s recruiter networking events.
Sure, this may seem like a shameless plug, but it’s also absolutely true. (If you’re going to be shameless, you might as well be truthful, right?)
And that’s just one of the reasons that you should consider attending the upcoming National Convention. You can party with us. You can celebrate with us. And you can meet other Network members face-to-face, build relationships, and make more split placements.
The best part: we kept the cost as low as we possibly could. Because we wouldn’t even be able to celebrate our birthday if it wasn’t for you, our loyal customers. So join us in New Orleans for the convention, and perhaps we’ll share a piece of birthday cake. Or an adult beverage. We are 31, after all.
