2017 Letter from the President

Hello Fellow Floor Covering Professionals-
 
       Happy New Year! I am honored and humbled to accept the nomination of President of The Mid-Atlantic Floor Covering Association.  Our association is on strong footing and well positioned to serve our members in 2017.  A BIG thank you is due to our immediate past-President, Chuck Bode, our Executive Director Michelle Goshorn, the entire Board, our sponsors AND our vendor partners.  There’s a great deal of heavy lifting that occurs behind the scenes, both by our board and members – we thank you all.
 
            We look forward to 2017, full of optimism.  We’re optimistic about the prospects of a stronger economy – We’re optimistic about a strengthening association – We’re optimistic that our members, more than ever, are engaged and ready to contribute to OUR association.  This optimism, however, isn’t blind.  Our industry continues to face challenges – a shortage of skilled labor, an aging workforce, regulatory and governmental hurdles.  These issues are bigger than any one company or individual.  They require the effort of us all!
 
            It’s critically important for our Board and I to hear from you!  How can we provide value?  How can we better serve you?  What challenges do you face that we can support you in?  If we’re doing an exceptional job and there’s nothing more we can do for you – tell us that too, we’d love to hear from you.  PLEASE take a moment to complete this brief survey:   Membership Survey
 
If you haven’t already, please renew your membership now!  This is the first step and simplest way to contribute to YOUR association.  Thank you in advance for your prompt attention to this.
 
Together, we can make our association even greater!
 
Adam Joss
President
Mid-Atlantic Flooring Association
