BUILDING SUPPLY INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION- April/May 2018 - 16

MESSAGE FROM

CHRIS BLAND PRESIDENT, BCFCA

WHAT CAN WE DO FOR YOU?

T

he team of the BCFCA is
striving to improve and
add to the membership
services and benefits we
already offer.
Are there any services that you
think we can provide that you would
find helpful beyond the benefits already available? Are
you confronted with any specific problems? What about
labour? Installation? Courses? Inspections? Help wanted?
Insurance or any other service and benefit? These are
just some of the things that come to mind when trying to
answer the question. But what we really want to know is -
what can the BCFCA do for you?
A wealth of information, help and services are available
to you from us and many of your fellow BCFCA members.
Please ask our office for a list of education and events for
this year, or check out our FloorSpace or website.
More of the same, but I feel like touching on it again.
The British Columbia economy is booming. We are looking
forward to a very strong future for the floor covering
industry. Housing and commercial building starts are way
up. Schools and hospitals are being built and upgraded
in many parts of the province. Investments are up and
our population continues to grow. There are many new

players bringing flooring products to us from places like
China, Korea and Europe. The influx of these products
tells us we are now, more than ever, in a global market
and we must be ready to accept the ever growing flooring
product choices.
In all regions, workmanship and installation continues
to dominate the part of our industry that needs constant
upgrading, training, and attention. Most of the grievance
flooring inspections done through our consumer affairs
program are hardwood and laminate, of these up to 70%
are installation related problems.
The BCFCA urges our members to have their installers
and salespeople participate in the many different
education programs that the BCFCA offers. Your suppliers
and the floor covering apprenticeship programs will have
installation and product knowledge available to you.
You need knowledgeable and qualified salespeople and
installers, get your people trained and get more sales.
***A REMINDER*** Ask you staff to start reading and
using your BCFCA, National Floor Covering Association
Reference Manual (also online). Our website at
www.bcfca.com is updated daily with current and relevant
information about our association.
Please email us at info@bcfca.com or call the office at
604-881-4944, our team is there to help!
