FCICA, the Flooring Contractors Association, has added a new committee, the Technology Committee. The committee will be responsible for researching and evaluating the emerging technology and productivity tools that provide value to the membership, as well as planning for the increasingly important role of technology in the future.

The committee is chaired by Gerry Swift of Potomac Floor Covering, who is also FCICA’s current secretary/treasurer. Pam Bowe of Bowe Company, FCICA’s website partner and new member, also sits on this committee.

“The Technology Committee has been tasked with determining the base line technology interests of our members, will help in developing and deploying on-line surveys and will improve our communication to our members through the FCICA website,” said Kim Oderkirk, FCICA’s executive vice president. “The Technology Committee will research new directions in technology and review products regularly, with an eye on how it will impact the industry and the benefits of implementation. This is a great addition to the association and to its future.”
