Education Takes Center Stage at CFI Convention
August 12, 2011
Installers from across the nation returned to Kansas City, Mo. for the opening day of The International Certified Floorcovering Installers Association’s 18th annual Convention in Kansas City, Mo., August 11-13.
This year’s convention started off with the board of directors meeting, followed by certification team meetings, in which the organization’s trainers reviewed the latest installation techniques for carpet, resilient and ceramic tile.
Thursday evening, the WFCA-sponsored Leadership Conference & Dinner officially opened the convention with an introduction by World Floor Covering Association (WFCA) ceo D. Christopher Davis, who welcomed the installers and thanked the events sponsors.
“We’ve always been a big believer in CFI, Davis said. “What has impressed me the most about this organization is their dedication and commitment to excellence.”
Davis was followed by the return of keynote presenter Dennis Brown, “Mr. Attitude is Everything!” Brown inspired the group with his dynamic presentation, stressing the importance of attitude in every aspect of life.
“When you’re installing floors, you should also be installing a better attitude in yourself,” Brown advised. “The only difference between a good day and a bad day is your attitude.”
