Sell Your Supervisor
You’ve done your research and understand the enormous benefits of attending KBIS 2017 and Design & Construction Week®. And now it’s time you convince your boss!
We’d like to help you make the approval process of attending KBIS worry-free. Below, you’ll find a justification letter template — a letter to your supervisor explaining all of the benefits you’ll get from attending KBIS. How the show will help you stay current, competitive and profitable, and ultimately help advance your organization.
And this letter is just a starting point. Feel free to add in any selling points you think might help build your case. Perhaps you’d like to focus on a specific skill-set or knowledge you’d be able to take back to your organization right away. Or perhaps it’s the fact that CEU’s and NKBA Hours are offered at the show.
A well-prepared and professional request will go a long way towards winning your supervisors’ approval!
Bottom line: Attending KBIS 2017 and Design & Construction Week® is the MOST efficient use of your time away from the office and dollars spent. Why? Because your entire industry meets here! You can’t afford not to attend.
