New England ORC Conference

Several weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending the New England ORC Conference sponsored by the retail associations of the various states in the area who have come together in cooperation on this issue.  Congratulations to Kevin Plante from Staples who was responsible for leading the coordination and planning of the conference.  It was a very well-run conference and it is my understanding that it was a record attendance.

During my remarks at the conference, I made the observation that we, as an industry, should feel good about the progress we have made on ORC.  It often seems that we come across as “chicken littles” on this issue when, in fact, we have made substantial ground.  The increased use of technology, information sharing across the industry, and coordinated efforts on legislation are all possible indicators that perhaps we are controlling this issue better than ever before.  Your thoughts?
