GHTA appoints retailer to board

Haberstroh will serve as ex-officio member

The Gift and Home Trade Association has named Melissa Haberstroh an ex-officio member of the Gift and Home Trade Association board of directors for 2007.

Haberstroh is the owner of The Burlap Horse in Boerne, Texas, and was selected as a result of her involvement and leadership in the GHTA's Retailer Advisory Board, which was created to support and cultivate the industry's independent retailers.
"The GHTA is working to improve every aspect of our industry and I am proud of my role in this dynamic group," Haberstroh said.  "As a member of the board, I will work to represent independent retailers and their interests in the gift and home industry." As a member of the board, Haberstroh will be working with the industry's top executives on the four major initiatives of the GHTA: to educate sales professionals; to understand and educate the industry on opportunities for technological efficiencies; to support and cultivate the industry's independent retailers; and to understand and educate the industry on showroom/trade show costs, statistics, schedules, opportunities and preferences.
