KNOXVILLE, TENN. — The Mobile Enhancement Retailers Association (MERA), said it will oversee the development of regional retailer roundtable discussions to help retailers exchange helpful business tips and ideas.
MERA had previously suggested that retailers organize such discussions amongst themselves, but since few retailers took the initiative, MERA will now officially organize these events, said executive director Rick Mathies.
The discussion groups will consist of 15 to 20 retailers who "have dinner and talk about business and templates of successful practices."
ARLINGTON, VA. — The Consumer Electronics Association released its first Master Installation Technician Study Guide, a study tool for Mobile Electronics Certified Professionals (MECP) who want to advance to the next level of expertise. It is available for $70 online at www.ce.org
