Top 10 Reasons to Join our Association

Top 10 Reasons to Join the Mid Atlantic Floor Covering Association…

1. Industry Networking– Get to know your fellow dealers personally. As an added bonus, meet the top executives of the most important vendors in the industry. Share best practices. Plus, you might actually end up liking your competition. ….

2. A Voice to be Heard! Do you realize the immediate past President of the Association is now a State Delegate in Maryland who is on the committee that oversees the Department of Labor, Licensing and Registration?

3. Another Voice to be Heard– Do you realize that the Association has one of the top, most effective government lobbyists on retainer to represent our interests as required? Bruce Bereano is the REAL DEAL.

4. Strength in Numbers– Do you realize the State of Maryland tried to STOP your company from using 1099 labor subcontractors, to re-classify them as employees, and that the Association was able to defeat that effort?

5. Geography- The Association has had a recent name change and is now called the Mid-Atlantic Floor Covering Association. In doing so, we have added Pennsylvania! The more Members, the stronger force we are. Most people don’t realize we are the 2nd largest Floor Covering Association in the United States.

6. Excellent Training- Through out the year, our Education Committee handles technical training sessions that will help make your Company more professional. The Association promotes educational learning in our industry so that we can all run our business more professionally.

7. Have Access to Tremendous Resources. Concerned about the Lumber Liquidator formaldehyde in laminate debacle and how it might affect your business? The Association is on top of these type issues and has the resources to help you.

8. The WFCA- Joining our Association means you automatically belong to the World Floor Covering Association. The WFCA will give each member up to $500.00 annually to offset any training costs for any educational related floor covering program. That amount is more than the membership cost to the Association. A no-brainer to join!

9. Attend Industry Functions. The Association has 2 or 3 events annually where you have an opportunity to socialize with your industry peers, such as our industry-wide annual golf outing.

10. Give Back to the Industry You Have Chosen. Why not leave a legacy in your chosen profession? Have something to offer to the Membership? What better way than the Association to give of your time, effort, or money to help elevate our entire industry? A rising tide raises all ships!
