On February 22, 2018, the Chicago Floorcovering Association is planning a round table discussion as a first step in developing a task force to address the shortage of floor covering installers in the Chicagoland area.
The event will be held at Glendale Lakes Country Club, 1550 President Street, Glendale Heights, IL. Dinner will be provided. Retailers, distributors, contractors, manufacturers, installers, legislators and educators are all welcome.
There is no charge to attend, though RSVPs at [email protected] or 630-442-7094 are requested to help with planning. More information is available at chicagofloorcoveringassociation.com
Pat Zirkleback, incoming 2018 CFA president said, “As a former ceramic tile installer, I feel a personal commitment to lead the challenge to define, develop and implement a way to encourage and train flooring installers in Chicagoland. As as CFA President, I want to throw the entire weight of our organization into this and hep facilitate discussion and action!”
Plan to attend this important discussion, and add your wisdom and experience to the meeting.
