The Flooring Contractors Association’s (FCICA) membership was “in it to win it” at this year’s annual convention in Biloxi, Miss. Offering four days of networking, education, live product demos, a commercial flooring tradeshow and giveaways, the event welcomed 184 attendees—74 of them for the first time—marking the largest attendance for the group in almost 20 years. With 60 new members joining the association since last July, FCICA’s total membership now sits around 250.
According to Kim Oderkirk, FCICA executive vice president, “We aggressively went after new members by attending Starnet, Fuse and Commercial One events, showcasing membership and education opportunities. The Successors group also actively encourages those 40 and under to attend and network.”
