Welcome to the ADM Professional Community!
It is great to see you here... I am in my home office here in Gilbert, AZ trying to figure out how to get from Phoenix to Providence to San Antonio and back to Phoenix in 3 days... Anyways, despite the fact that I should be doing something else, like expense reports, I just had to go online to see if there were any new ADM Professional Community members that I should personally welcome... When I did... Shazam! There you were, one of several new(er) ADM Professionals that I consider very special and who I should welcome to our community.
(about time, huh?)
On behalf of both myself, and the rest of the 2,700+ member ADM Community, welcome to our online information exchange and file sharing repository... We are very happy that you have joined our community of automotive marketing, advertising and sales professionals.

If you look in your Junk Mail folder and find a message from ADM, Right Click on the message, select "Junk Mail" and then select "Add Sender's Domain to Safe Sender List" so that you will get your notifications, message alerts, invites, etc.
Please take a moment to share some more information about your current and previous professional roles. We would love to see more website links from you, and some blog postings with PPT, XLS, DOC and PDF files attached are particularly welcome. You can also upload or attach files and photos, or embed video clips into any ADM Forum posts you create, or respond to... We would all (well, most of us) love to see and listen to your music, automotive related photos and car business related videos. Because of our advertisers, I am able to pay for additional server storage capacity for ADM members to upload and have access to 1,000 GB (a Terabyte) of valuable content. So, any useful files you upload to take advantage of all this extra capacity, and share with your ADM professional colleagues is appreciated.
VERY IMPORTANT - All of us at ADM very much appreciate that you took the time to complete your profile section by uploading a photo showing your face. Most ADM members would like to put a face with your name and profile... Based on what i have seen since starting the ADM Professional Community at the beginning of 2008, I can promise you that you'll get more out of ADM when other members see that you have uploaded a profile photo!
ADM members receive an amazing amount of support from an industry that has never ceased to amaze me, even after 28 years of selling cars... Makes the aggravation of flying around the country with guys sitting next to me who stick their elbows into my ribs, somehow worth it!
One of the greatest features that ADM provides is full un-moderated, unlimited access to your very own blog web site publishing tools within your personal profile section (here) of the ADM community. So feel free to get into the swing of things and use this website and the resources you get at no extra cost (because the ads here pay for them), as a means of sharing information, files, updates, proposals, photos, videos, etc.with your associates, customers, clients and friends!
