BUILDING SUPPLY INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION - November/December 2018 - 12

MESSAGE FROM

THALIA SIEBEN PRESIDENT, BCFCA

C

hristmas is just around the corner and another year will be soon be upon us. 2018 was quite
the year for the BC Floor Covering Association. As I look back over the year, I am proud of the
many successes we had. I am most proud of the education offered this year. We had many
highly-attended and sold-out classes. We also diversified our education to include courses on social
media and sales coaching. The team at BCFCA along with the education committee worked hard this
year to ensure we were offering a broad selection of training to serve our members. As we look to 2019,
we hope to expand that even further.
We also had another successful Flooring Expo in 2018, with booth space sold out in record time. We
held it at a new location, Delta Hotel & Conference Centre, the Grand Villa in Burnaby, making the show
a little closer for all our members to attend. The Expo Committee is looking forward to planning our
Expo for 2019 as it will be extra special next year. The BCFCA will be celebrating its 60th anniversary
on October 17, 2019! We will be hosting a party after the 2019 Expo to celebrate this milestone for the
association. We could not be more thrilled to have come this far and grown so much, and we could
not have done it without the constant support of our wonderful members. We look forward to sharing
further details with you about what 2019 has to offer and will keep you updated as the details of the
60th anniversary party unfold.
Let us know if you would like to help out by volunteering on one of our committees. We are always
looking for good people in our industry.
Thalia Sieben, President
