OSHA’s Crystalline Silica Rule

Many questions are now starting to emerge concerning OSHA’s released updated rules regarding silica in the workplace with implementation for contractors in 2017.  The rules include two standards, one for general industry and a second for the construction industry.   These new rules manage exposure of respirable silica in the workplace and include establishment of an exposure action level for compliance and reduction of the Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL).

Mapei will be joining us to discuss these regulations and the impact to our members.

2017 Sales Training With Lisbeth Calandrino

The Association was excited to offer this dynamic sales training with nationally known industry expert Lisbeth Calandrino.  Check out her website at  Thanks to J.J. Haines for providing a meeting place and lunch for all our participants.  Our Association is looking having this sales training again next year.  Do you have a topic that Lisbeth should cover?  Drop us a line at


Sales Training with Lisbeth was fantastic! She is knowledgeable of the industry as well as super passionate and motivational. Her personal life experiences and stories on relationship building were memorable, which is always a great way to learn. I have attended a lot of training classes and always come away with something new to try. Lisbeth gave me many tools to influence my current and future customers! I would highly recommend this class to anyone who wants to grow and learn.
