"If you are going to be a successful office technology dealer, BTA is the 'go-to' association. It offers information services on every aspect of the business. This information is offered in print, webinars, classroom workshops and district events, which are all included or offered at a discount with dealer membership. BTA keeps you abreast of all new technologies with online support. And its growing list of member benefits can save a dealer a lot of dollars. I have been a BTA member since I opened my dealership. BTA truly has the dealers' best interests at heart!"
Bob Smith, Copiers Plus Inc., Fayetteville, North Carolina
"BTA is the 'Total Association.' It provides industry news, contacts, training and best practices for business technology resellers and service providers."
Robert Moore, Lockwood Moore, Reno, Nevada
"It's the best resource and value; you're crazy if you don't belong. One report, piece of legal advice or contract template will cost you a lot more than membership!"
Greg Gondek, ACT Group, Cromwell, Connecticut
"I have described BTA to another dealer who currently is not a member. I let him know that he would rub elbows with some pretty decent people and that he would likely meet folks who could and would help if given the chance."
John Eckstrom, Carolina Business Equipment Inc., Columbia, South Carolina
"BTA is an organization that looks out for dealers and their interests. Using some street vernacular: 'It has your back.'"
Gerry Purvis, Purvis Business Machines, Meridian, Mississippi
"I have always told other dealers that the benefits outweigh the membership cost. The legal advice alone is worth the membership cost."
John Kerling, United Business Systems, Buffalo, New York
"BTA is an organization dedicated to the development of independent dealers."
Ray Belanger, Bay Copy, Rockland, Massachusetts
"Membership easily pays for itself with just the education and legal benefits."
Mark Naylor, ABM Automation, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
"My membership this year saved me $10,000 in legal fees! Now that's an ROI! One call to Bob and he answered my legal question in what my local attorney said would be weeks of research. We all like to think of ourselves as experts in our industry so if we aren't utilizing the real experts at BTA to support us, then what are we doing?"
Greg Gondek, ACT Group, Cromwell, Connecticut
"Repeat Business Systems Inc. has been a BTA (NOMDA) member for more than 20 years. We have benefited from the training and other offerings, but we have gleaned the most from our experiences with your attorney, Mr. Bob Goldberg. Mr. Goldberg has provided information on issues as far ranging as business acquisitions to forms for software and IT contracts. He knows the office technology industry better than anyone I have encountered in my 24 years in this industry. Aside from the excellent advice he has provided, Mr. Goldberg has also made personal calls on our behalf. For example, we were involved in a challenging issue with a leasing company that, after six months, was not resolved. Mr. Goldberg called the president of that company on our behalf and the issue was resolved within 24 hours. Thank you to BTA and Mr. Goldberg for a long history of excellence and commitment to the independent dealer channel."
Dawn Abbuhl, Repeat Business Systems, Albany, New York
"In the past several years, I have contacted Bob Goldberg on numerous topics as they pertain to our dealership. I have been extremely satisfied with his knowledge of the dealer business. He has helped us many times regarding contracts of all types. He has sent me templates of documents — from maintenance contracts to employment contracts. It is a great benefit of being a BTA member to be able to call Bob Goldberg and and talk to him about the myriad legal issues that come up in our dealership. Every time I have contacted Bob, he has been very prompt in his response and honest in what he can help with and what he cannot."
Roger King, EO Johnson Co., Wausau, Wisconsin
"PERRY proTECH has been a member of BTA since 1980. Over the years, our membership has benefited us in countless ways because of the many services offered by BTA, particularly BTA Legal Services, headed by BTA General Counsel Bob Goldberg. Bob's intimate knowledge of our industry and his unmatched availability and follow-up have provided us with timely, expert legal advice on a wide variety of legal matters at no additional cost. The value and cost savings we derived from his services alone greatly exceeds and more than justifies our membership fees."
Barry Clark, PERRY proTECH, Lima, Ohio
"We use the BEQI and Bob Goldberg. I think the other benefits, like insurance, are certainly of value to your smaller members."
Dean Boring, Boring Business Systems, Lakeland, Florida
