….A Friendly Reminder From Your President“it makes our Association STRONGER!!!!”
 
Spring training has ended and Opening Day has begun another season of Ameri-
ca’s favorite pastime – 
baseball! Each team has been working hard so they canenter another season at the top of their game.In our industry we do the same thing in getting ready for another season of con-struction. We do the things that we perceive are needed to get ready for thebusy season, but how do we know what needs to be worked on? In the Majorsthey have scores of coaches and trainers, scouts and management
 – 
people thatoutline what needs to be improved. I find that in our business, we look for someinsight from our customers and subcontractors as to what we need to workon. Our industry associations keep us informed on changing styles and trends.We also educate ourselves on those changes, trying to implement those thingsinto our business. Our customers move us by what they are asking for andwhere their interests are, and we mold ourselves to respond to their needs.Of course, there are always the chores of working on equipment and educatingour employees in the proper ways to install an ever changing list of popularproducts and innovative technologies for energy efficiency and construction prac-tices. It seems that topics in our industry, such as how decks are constructedand the array of materials available for exterior application, are changing dai-ly. Falling out of touch for even a couple of months because of being busy canleave us behind in what we should be learning and compounds the things thatwe may have missed.
I’m always afraid to miss an industry meeting or overlook
a trade publication, fearing that I might miss a small tidbit of information thatmight make a difference in what we are building, or miss a sale because of some-thing I did not know.Our industry must also educate customers on choosing a reputable contractorand how we can stand out by promoting the Quality Assurance Builder Stand-ards. We educate homeowners as to how to protect themselves from under-insured and less professional trades people in the home construction businessand to promote value rather than simple bottom line pricing.
It’s also important to give back to our industry and support the organizations
that provide us with that information. Chico Escuela, a baseball player for theN.Y. Mets (popularized by Saturday Night Live weekend update skits of the
70s), in a heavy Hispanic accent: “Baseball been berra berra good to me.”
Ourindustry has been good to us and could use a little giving back. Ready for base-ball season?
