“It was a great pleasure to have Dick Cross open the 30th Anniversary general session,” Ron Pyle, ASA president, said in the release. “He delivered a practical and easy-to-implement plan for success. I am sure everyone in attendance agrees that he was extremely motivational and an excellent choice to kick off this very special ASRW.”
