For one lucky International Certified Floorcovering Installers Association (CFI) member, attending the recently held 14th Annual Certified Floorcovering Installers Convention in Kansas City, Mo., proved to be a “rewarding” experience.

Roland Thompson, CFP, Kehne’s Carpet One, Frederick, MD has been named winner of the “Surfaces 2008 CFI Giveaway.” The prize includes round-trip airfare, four nights’ hotel accommodations and a Surfaces Conference package consisting of two workshops, five seminars and two 60-minute mini-conference sessions.

“I have attended almost every Surfaces since 2002 and each year I am more impressed with the amount of education offered to installers,” says Thompson. “I want to thank the World Floor Covering Association and Hanley Wood for their support of the installation community and for awarding me this opportunity.”

To be eligible to win the Surfaces 2008 CFI giveaway, the winner must have attended the CFI Annual Convention and submitted a Surfaces registration form to be included in a random drawing. The winner was announced at the close of the convention.

Surfaces 2008 will take place January 30-February 1 at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas. For details on exhibiting at or attending next year’s event, call (800) 547.3477 or (972) 536.6400 or
