2022 – Letter From The President

Hello Fellow Association Members,

Welcome to the Mid Atlantic Floor Covering Association! I am reaching out again with my second annual letter to you. As we talked about last year, I look forward to everyone’s participation in the Mid Atlantic Floor Covering Association. I am also truly hopeful that we will all have the opportunity to be in the same room together and enjoy each other’s company and take the time to recognize all the skills and experience we have in our industry. Our annual golf outing is currently being planned for the Fall.  Other events are being planned and will be announced when confirmed.

There have certainly been some positive growth and changes in our industry in 2021. We also were faced with some major challenges during last year ranging from product availability to logistic challenges and we won’t even talk about the number of price changes that transpired and still remain. Our resilience will be the solution to keep moving forward. Stay focused on your goals and solutions to grow your businesses.

Building our membership is still a priority for our association.  We need everyone to renew their membership and reach out to one dealer that they can get to join our group.  As has been mentioned previously, the membership is only $199.00.  Several of our vendor partners (Elias Wilf, J.J. Haines, and Fishman Flooring Solutions) have committed to continuing their generosity by providing coupons worth the price of the annual Membership netting the price to $0. The benefits of growing our membership are that we continue to be a preferred partner of our suppliers and receive competitive pricing on our projects.  We also continue to develop and implement industry-leading training programs that can benefit your operations and professionalism. As important, we will have a body of influence that can be represented in Annapolis to defer any negative action that may be considered. We faced a challenge in 2021 and we were successful in fighting it and are able to maintain our business practices without any changes. Please keep in mind that the time to build our membership is not during the battle but be prepared before any potential action is proposed.

 

Together, we can continue to develop our association into an even stronger group that can represent our membership and that we can be proud of.

 

I look forward to seeing you at future in-person events.

 

Steve Weidner

President
