Scott Whitmer Receives IRTA's Prestigious 2016 David Wallach Outstanding Achievement Award

David Wallach was one of the barter industry's finest leaders and visionaries. David's remarkable contributions to the barter industry spanned 30+ years. He served as IRTA's President from September 2007 until March of 2011, at which time the IRTA Global Board of Directors unanimously named him President Emeritus of IRTA. David served as IRTA's President Emeritus until his passing on May 6, 2011. 
Wallach's passion and love for the barter industry was unprecedented. He selflessly spent thousands of hours every year building the barter industry because he truly believed that the benefits of barter could improve the standard of living of everyone throughout the world. The phrase "modern trade and barter industry," was created by David Wallach.
Recipients of the David Wallach Outstanding Achievement Award must exhibit the same tireless unselfish commitment to the barter industry that David Wallach modeled. This year's recipient Scott Whitmer, President & CEO of Florida Barter, clearly has met the lofty criteria of the David Wallach Award. Scott was also elected as Co-Vice Chairman of the IRTA Global Board this year.
IRTA congratulates Scott on receiving his much-deserved 2016 David Wallach Outstanding Achievement Award!

How To Get More Sales In Hyper-Competitive
Restaurant Industry

Our street-smart restaurant marketing report shows proven ways to rapidly boost your restaurant's sales & profits.

Services Costs Keep Increasing … Another Reason For Using Trade

Many stories about deflationary prices have appeared in our nation’s newspapers and TV outlets. All of which leads a person to believe that everything is dropping in price. Not so.
Although big-ticket manufactured items are dropping a bit, what’s really more important for the entrepreneurial business owner is the cost of services used on a regular basis. And those prices are increasing, not dropping.
Luckily, many of these services are available through your trade exchange, where purchasing them on trade — at your barter cost — makes excellent sense in today’s tight economy.

Bottomline: Focus your barter purchases on the increasingly costly services to get the most “bang” for your trade dollar!
