EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR'S CORNER SPF'S DEMAND CONTINUES TO SPUR GROWTH OF INDUSTRY W elcome to the SPFA 2015 Sprayfoam Convention & Expo issue. This publication will be distributed in attendees' bags at the show, and also distributed through our normal subscription process. Those of you reading this at the show, I look forward to celebrating spray polyurethane foam over the next several days with you. Those reading this from elsewhere, you're missing out. I'm asked a lot by industry professionals and other trade organizations why our show has been so successful, notably over the past five years. I believe it's partly due to the thankful growth As the industry has grown so too have its challenges and opportunities. Many issues cannot be handled by any one company and require the collective approach of an association dedicated solely to SPF." in the market and demand for SPF, but also many other factors. I think SPFA has become more relevant over recent years. As the industry has grown so too have its challenges and opportunities. Many issues cannot be handled by any one company and require the collective approach of an association dedicated solely to SPF. Another reason the show has grown may be the increasing influence of SPFA's projects and partnerships in the daily operation of our members' companies. While many members likely work on these projects throughout the year, the convention is the place where it's all available to everyone. Many of the speakers we offer are unique, and attendees have direct access to them at the show. We celebrate achievement in the awards program, certify motivated professionals, and open the door for business connections on the exhibit hall floor. SPFA and the members that oversee the convention are dedicated to delivering the best possible experience and value for attendees. We hope you have a wonderful convention, a fantastic, record-setting year, and we strive to have SPFA play a role in your success. My personal appreciation to every one of you that make this event the success it is. You know the role you have played, and so do I. Warmest regards for a safe and profitable new year. Kurt P. Riesenberg SPFA Executive Director 6 SPRAYFOAM PROFESSIONAL | Spring 2015
