AP Golf Tournament, UTV Rental & Dinner at Mastro’s City Hall all make for a memorable 2023 Kick-Off weekend!

Each year our President, Jerry Tenenbaum, hosts a kick-off weekend in our homebase city of Scottsdale, Arizona. The weekend is put together to show appreciation for the team’s hard work throughout the year. This also provides a chance for the team to reset for the upcoming year! Our entire internal AP team is invited to join with a guest. This year we flew in team members from Portland, Seattle, Virginia, Vegas, Buffalo and Maryland. It’s not often that the entire team gets to interact in-person, so these events are extra special!  

January 13th, 2023

The weekend started out with an AP Golf Tournament for those who wanted to participate in hitting the green. This Tournament took place at a Scottsdale course where breakfast was held before hand. After a beautiful day on the course, it was time for Happy Hour! Open to all who wanted to join on the patio of the club.

January 14th, 2023

Saturday started off bright and early up in Cave Creek, AZ for the adventure junkies of the group! The team spent a whole half a day driving UTVs through the mountains, canyons & along the Rio Verde River. After getting a bit muddy & grabbing some lunch it was time to head back to Scottsdale. The group got ready for a team dinner at Mastro’s City Hall in Old Town Scottsdale.

Everyone was able to come together for the team dinner that night, which is always the highlight of the weekend. During the 2022 year, we added three new team members to the company. This was a great opportunity for them to meet many of the out-of-town members in person! Due to covid-19 restrictions, a couple members who came on board 2 years ago still hadn’t met everyone face to face!

Overall, kick-off weekend was a huge success. Many laughs were shared, and the team bonding was unmatched. These weekends help us all close the year behind us and look forward to the upcoming year with a refreshed attitude.
