It’s Academic

The people who have had the pleasure of writing this page in the past have often
spoken about how taking an active role in your association not only helps the industry as a whole, it helps you to run a more profitable business.

Taking an active role in your association can mean many things to different people. To some, it only means reading this magazine on a regular basis, while to others it means attending every possible committee meeting, convention, etc., and perhaps even becoming the association’s president. It doesn’t matter which end of the spectrum your level of participation falls; what does matter is that you feel you are getting what you want and need from your association (and your membership dues).

Your next opportunity to get active with your association is to attend AWCI’s Academy,

Who should attend? This in-depth education program is for estimators, senior and

Registration is easy. Just go to, and click on “Academy” for all the details.

I look forward to seeing you in Denver in January.
