Lifetime's 45th Semi-Annual Company Meeting

When coordinating Lifetime's semi-annual company meeting, I can get caught up in the details rather than appreciating the meeting for what it is. This past Saturday, as I peered from behind my laptop into a sea of more than 800 blue “25 Years” Lifetime T-shirts, it hit me.

Our semi-annual meeting is a unique program— one of the few times each year when people from all shifts and departments gather together and hear company updates, see new and upcoming products, and take part in Lifetime’s Profit Sharing program.

But I believe there is more to this meeting than what meets the eye... In the 45 times Lifetime has held this meeting, and the years that I have had the pleasure in taking part, I have come to realize what it means. It’s our commitment to producing high-quality products. It’s our drive to continue to grow profitably— maintaining the stability of a low-debt/no debt structure. It’s the genuine care that Lifetime employees show one another—reflected in the way management handles company growth, providing more benefits and opportunities.

In its essence, this meeting demonstrates people coming together to realize our mission- “Lifetime will produce high quality, innovative products while growing profitably and providing opportunities for our people.” 

During the meeting, we recognized our employees serving in the Military, and welcomed one home from Afghanistan. The photo in this post shows our president Richard Hendrickson announcing the return of this serviceman, and the standing ovation he received from all of us.

To sum up the presentations in this meeting, we learned that the company is doing well—growing at a steady rate that enables us to sustain company growth. Lifetime is expanding operations in Utah, adding new blow-molding machines and capabilities. And we unveiled a healthy lineup of exciting new products! I can’t talk about the new products yet, but we’ll announce them here first, and on our Facebook page and Twitter feed.

More exciting products and great company news to come. Stay tuned!

Favorite Fall Foods…Mmmmm!
Tuesday night was my turn to host our Air Force squadrons monthly wives meeting. The evenings in Texas are just starting to cool down so I figured it would be the perfect opportunity to serve my favorite Fall foods - soup and pumpkin desserts! I didnt want to spend too much time and effort on decorating since the meetings are supposed to be simple. So, I planned to eat outside in the cool autumn air and allow Mother Nature to provide my dcor. Well, unfortunately, Mother Nature didnt exactly cooperate with her end of the dealapparently she thinks low 80s is ideal for Fall!? But, after the sun set, it did feel slightly brisk. I borrowed three of bales of straw from a friend to set around in the yard as easy Fall decorations and extra seating if needed. I used my patio table and chairs, a card table and chairs, and my Lifetime...
Here A Table, There A Table, Everywhere A Lifetime Table!
Even after being part of the Lifetime team for nearly 10 years now, I still get a little giddy every time I see a Lifetime table when Im out and about. This past weekend, I was practically jumping up and down when my husband and I went to an outdoor concert at Whitewater Amphitheatre in New Braunfels, Texas. Whitewater is appropriately named because it is nestled amongst the trees in the Texas hill country on the banks of the bubbly Guadalupe River. It is an absolute picturesque setting for enjoying concerts in the summer evenings under the stars. As soon as we walked into the facilities, I was greeted by Lifetime banquet tables at the ticket entrance and in the merchandise area where they were selling concert t-shirts and souvenirs. However, my real excitement came as I walked a few steps further and saw nearly 50 Lifetime ...
Score! Basketball Hoop Fosters Positive Contact with Community Kids
One of the coolest things about working for a manufacturing company is that I get to make products that people love and use in their everyday lives. Having our headquarters in Clearfield, Utah gives Lifetime the opportunity to use our products and resources throughout the community. I am always happy when we can help someone out. We recently had the opportunity to do just that. This basketball story below is from our friend Anthony, from the Department of Corrections facility in Salt Lake City, Utah. I am grateful to Anthony for sharing this experience and hope they are enjoying the new basketball system! I bought a hoop in 2002 for our officers to use as a way to get in some exercise while at the office. We had no idea at the time it would transform into what it did.We used the hoop for some great interoffice tournaments w...
