CSIA February 2014 President’s Message from Brian Willett:
As I look out our office window, snow covers the ground and still more is coming. It seems like this has been a common scene for us the last two months, and there is no hope of warmth or sun in the near future. I guess it’s a good thing we are in the
insulation business and not selling ice cubes.
I just finished my registration for the upcoming NIA Annual Convention, April 2-5, in Indian Wells, California. Please take a look into the great opportunity to network with business associates, learn more about our industry, and take a break from the everyday grind back at the office. You have until March 7th to take advantage of their early bird discounts.
I would like to give special recognition to Bryan Pieh of Advanced Industrial Services to his past years of service on the CSIA board. Due to current job responsibilities, Bryan has resigned from the board. He will be greatly missed for his experience, professionalism, and hard work. We have elected Brad Viers with Advanced Industrial Services as his replacement, and I would like to wish Brad a warm welcome.
Don’t miss the upcoming CSIA seminar “How Wage and Hour Laws Affect Your Business” on March 19th by Steve Watring of Dunlevey, Mahan & Furry. Details can be found on page 13 of this publication.
Our association office is currently working on the details for the CSIA Spring Labor Conference at the Griffith Gate Resort in Lexington, KY, on April 22 and 23. Our board has decided to invite MCAO Member firms (Union Mechanical & Sheet Metal Shops in Ohio) to attend our networking events & related seminars. We hope this addsvalue to our membership by providing opportunities to develop relationships with your customers. Registration information can be found on pages 10 and 11 of this publication.
I hope your 2014 is off to a good start and look forward to seeing you in the near future.
