    • For the last several years, we’ve worked to eliminate people who have no professional affiliation with the firearms industry from attending the SHOT Show and taking up your valuable time.

      We’ve made great progress through changes to our registration process, and this year, with much help from our exhibitors, we’ve made even more progress. Thanks in large part to exhibitor compliance with a request to not exceed their badge allotment — and a new registration system for exhibitors — the number of unqualified attendees invited by exhibiting companies has been reduced.

      How big a dent will this make in the attendance numbers for the 2018 show? Expect 2,000 to 3,000 fewer people crowding booths, chewing the fat — and usurping your ability to get done the business that needs to get done at the show.

      I want to reiterate that we are happy about this, very happy, in fact. Our industry is under tremendous pressure to meet the many and varied demands of today’s evolving consumer. We can’t do that if our buyers, range owners and media members can’t connect with our manufacturers in a meaningful, purposeful way. Because all of you took the registration process seriously, our industry is now better poised to have the best SHOT Show ever thrive in the coming months and years.

      Thank you, one and all, especially our exhibitors, for cooperating with the new registration process to help ensure that only qualified attendees will be in the aisles and in your booths at SHOT Show. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone in Las Vegas next week as we celebrate the 2018 SHOT Show, our 40th Anniversary, and all that we have to look forward to as an industry.

    • The right staff hired at the right time and the right way is key to a smoothly functioning FFL retail store.
      Making the wrong hiring decision means throwing away a substantial investment of time and money on recruitment, training and benefits. That wrong decision also carries with it the potential for legal problems. Whether you've performed 100 interviews or you are new to the hiring world, our 2018 SHOT Show Retailer Seminar “Hiring the Productive and Legal Way” will give you knowledge and tools to use immediately with your next hiring prospect. You’ll learn:

      - Traditional and non-traditional recruiting methods.
      - Creative ways to finding qualified candidates.
      - How to conduct an interview effectively and legally.
      - How to start new employees off on the right foot.
      - How to improve your overall employee selection approach.
      - How to attract talent through innovative employee recruitment sources.
      - Interviewing techniques to refine and develop your skills as an interviewer—including how to keep your interviews legal.
      This seminar will be presented by business and human resources experts Wendy Christie and Thomas “Mack” Brennan.

      Christie has more than 20 years of experience in employee relations. As a human resources consultant, she has helped countless companies develop legally compliant employee handbooks and documentation. Her work takes into account industry-specific considerations, while including state and federal laws so that employers avoid potential and costly employee claims. Consulting and investigating on a number of sexual harassment, embezzlement and workplace bullying situations have taught her how to “glean the truth” about a situation and produce productive discussions and solutions. Christie is also the author of a number of articles on hiring practices, embezzlement, legally compliant employment practices and dress codes for today’s workplace.

      Brennan, over more than 20 years in the workforce, has held a number of managerial position in the corporate field and as a business owner. He has overseen staff of all kinds, from line employees up to upper management, giving him a unique perspective of human resources. As the co-founder of Human Resources Associates, Brennan’s current work is in pioneering new support services for clients in the area of employer relations. He has developed employee handbook policies and helped clients through difficult employee terminations and investigations. Brennan holds two degrees in business management from Wyoming State.

      The Retailer Seminar “Hiring the Productive and Legal Way” takes place the third day of the 2018 SHOT Show, Thursday, Jan. 25, from 9:00-10:00 a.m. Registration for the 2018 SHOT Show is now open, and buyers and range owners successfully registering to attend the show can then register for various Retailer Seminars and other educational events.
