Welcome to the West Coast Florida Chapter. I am very excited and honored to be the chapter president. We have a lot of great events in-store for this year that build on last years events. Our current and past board members, along with our membership have created an environment of learning, educating and networking in the industry that has made this chapter outstanding year after year. Our chapter is a blend of design professionals, contractors, distributors and manufacturers that meet once a month to share their knowledge.
The West Coast Florida Chapter is growing every year with new members, new ideas, that help bring in new opportunities to educate us in our ever-changing industry. Last year was a great year with new concepts and event locations. We had three evening technical presentations and an all-day Demo Day. Additionally, we had our second Annual Cigar and Whisky networking social in Ybor City. We came together to help our local community and paint the exterior of a local Boys and Girls Club. Thank you to all those who came to paint! We finished the year off with a sporting clay event, and a Christmas Happy Hour Networking Social.
I would like to thank the current and past boards for all their involvement in our chapter. Without their dedication and volunteering their precious time, our chapter would not be where it is today. I also want to bring to everyone’s attention, to thank the many long-term members, new members and yearlong sponsors that continue to support this successful chapter. We continue to look forward to your involvement.
In closing, I ask that if you are interested in getting involved, come to one of our events. You will not be disappointed, and you will have the opportunity to meet some great people in our local industry.
Thank you and see you soon!
