The Foundation Is a Resource for All Members
Jerry Smith / October 2018
I would like to welcome Jay Watt of National Gypsum as the incoming president of the Foundation of the Wall and Ceiling Industry. So, what does the Foundation do for the industry, AWCI and its members? Its mission is to be an unbiased source of information and provide education to support the wall and ceiling industry. To help fulfill this, the Foundation has the largest independent library (the John H. Hampshire Memorial Library) to serve the wall and ceiling industry. The library provides research support, and it serves as a reference material resource. The Foundation Research Series are in-depth papers covering topics of interest to our industry. Other valuable resources at the library are a big benefit to members of the AWCI.
In addition to being 2018–2019 president of the Association of the Wall and Ceiling Industry, Smith is president of Baker Drywall Austin, Ltd.
