Keep Current

Wenever I leave an AWCI meeting, I always walk away with more information
and ideas that will help me run my business better. What with the way the technology, tools and techniques keep improving and evolving, you have to stay “in the loop,” you have to stay informed and educated—if you want to keep your business healthy and stay ahead of the pack.



There are many things you can do to make sure you’re on top of things, and one of the most beneficial is attending industry meetings. This new year kicks off with one of AWCI’s best educational opportunities—AWCI’s Academy 2002, which will be held Feb. 1-2 at the Westin O’Hare in Chicago. This in-depth program for estimators, senior managers, field superintendents, project managers, architects and specifiers will cover topics such as documentation, change orders, EIFS estimating, scaffolding safety and blueprints. In conjunction with this meeting is an AWCI EIFS Education and Certificate seminar, which will be held at the same city and begin just before Academy.



Then, join us in March for AWCI’s Expo: Construction Directions, in San Antonio,
Texas. This must attend event offers even more education sessions than in the past, and the largest trade show yet. In addition to the ‘serious business,” you are sure to have a great time meeting with your peers, whether it’s in the exhibit hall or on the golf course. You’ll find all the details in the brochure that is bound into this magazine.

In closing, I’d like to encourage you to attend any or all of these meetings and not just AWCI’s meetings, but the meetings of your local chapters and other industry groups. If we all keep up with the times by staying informed, we are all doing our part to improve the industry.



My best wishes to you all for a peaceful and rewarding new year.
