<p>ADA, Okla., <span class="xn-chron">Aug. 26</span> /CNW/ -- After a 10-year run in <span class="xn-location">Las Vegas</span>, Nevada, Pre-Paid Legal Services, Inc. (NYSE:   PPD) is moving its 2010 Leadership Summit to the American Airlines Center and the Hyatt Regency in <span class="xn-location">Dallas</span>, Texas on September 9-11. The corporate event will bring an estimated 10,000 independent PPD associates to the city.</p>
<p>The relocation of the annual PPD event offers strategic advantages for both the company and the associates, including the city's centralized geographic location and access, state-of-the-art venues and community amenities.</p>
<p>"The 2010 Leadership Summit marks a turning point in this important Pre-Paid Legal Services event and we're confident the <span class="xn-location">Dallas</span> venues, coupled with an excellent program agenda, will make this the first of many memorable 'Lone Star' events," said PPD Founder and Chairman of the Board Harland C. Stonecipher.</p>
<p><span class="xn-location">Dallas</span> Convention & Visitors Bureau President & CEO <span class="xn-person">Philip Jones</span> says the Pre-Paid Legal Services Leadership Summit is a valuable addition to the roster of industry events in <span class="xn-location">Dallas</span>.</p>
<p>"We welcome Pre-Paid Legal Services to the community and we appreciate the anticipated <span class="xn-money">$8.6 million</span> economic impact this event will have on the <span class="xn-location">Dallas</span> economy," Jones said.</p>
<p>One of the highlights of the 2010 Leadership Summit will be the Friday evening, <span class="xn-chron">September 10</span>, keynote presentation by <span class="xn-person">John Fleming</span>, publisher and Editor in Chief of Dallas-based Direct Selling News, a leading voice in the direct selling and network marketing industry. <span class="xn-person">Mr. Fleming</span> and Robert T. Kiyosaki co-authored the book, The Business of the 21st Century, which offers a perspective on the growth opportunities in the direct selling industry.</p>
<p>"Given our current economic conditions, there has never been a better time to focus on the value of self-sufficiency and the opportunities in the direct selling industry," Fleming said. "It's an inclusive industry, providing opportunity for people in all walks of life and economic conditions, and unlike most traditional business models, direct selling does not require a significant financial investment," he said.</p>
<p>The three-day event also includes a packed agenda of meetings, workshops and training programs to help participating associates expand their industry knowledge, enhance their business development skills and to network with other associates from throughout the U.S. and four provinces of <span class="xn-location">Canada</span>.
