We are filled with gratitude for the major milestone our Harbor family has achieved, celebrating 100 years as a family-owned business! We know it takes a village to create something this special and could not have made it to this monumental achievement without you. At this year’s Summit we will honor our history together and provide new strategies as we collaborate on Forging Our Future with you and your long-term success in mind.

    Summit is the premier event where industry leaders meet to develop best in class business strategies. In the true Harbor spirit, we will prioritize sharing time in fellowship with our mutual passion and love, family. As a fourth-generation family-owned company, we cherish nothing more than the people around us that make life well lived. Thank you for choosing to be with us now. We are thrilled to enjoy these next several days together with you and your family!

    Best Regards,

    Rick Jensen - President
