BCFCA PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

T

he BCFCA recently celebrated 58 years as the voice of
the floor covering industry in BC.
Formed in 1959, the BCFCA is a long and established
trade and business association founded and funded by businesses
that operate in all segments of the floor covering industry.
During the past 5 years the BCFCA has grown and thrived
extensively, 2017 in particular has been the most exciting and
strengthening year ever. Membership continues to grow in all
areas of the province. Special membership rates for installers
and small businesses have been very popular. (These groups are
eligible to join the extended health and dental plans.)
Here are some of the key programs and events that proved
mutually meaningful to all of you in 2016-2017. These have
greatly improved our importance to our existing and new
prospective membership.
The National Floor Covering Association (NFCA) became
a natural and strong ally of the BCFCA. We share the same
offices, staff and Thomas Foreman our Executive Director.
The NFCA president, Chris Maskell and their Board of
Directors bring a wealth of experience, knowledge, and expertise
to our industry, nationally and locally.
The NFCA Floor Covering Reference Manual is now
online, everything you want to source for flooring information. "Considered one of the best flooring manuals available,"
all members get a copy and can register for online access.
The NFCA quality assurance program (QAP) is a commercial
flooring service specified into the construction documents.

Quality Assurance Inspectors ensure NFCA Standards are
upheld in the installation process. The review and report to the
entire construction team at stages in the installation.
The 4th annual Flooring Expo was held in October in
Nanaimo and was hugely successful. Many dealers and installers attended a day of seminars and also visited exhibitors at
their booths.
The BCFCA website has all our members listed, check it out
at www.bcfca.com. There's a lot here for you, your customers,
consumers, builders, etc. We get lots of hits!
The Association brings lots of people together for training seminars, social events, product knowledge presentations,
estimating, and computer courses. Bring your staff with you.
I would like to give a special thank you to the following people
who work tirelessly for the BCFCA, Thomas Foreman, Executive
Director, Jackie Trafton, Benefits & Administration Manager,
Denise Rowse, Administrative Assistant and Chris Maskell,
Business Development Manager & President NFCA.
While it's nice to reflect on all the things we at the association
do to keep things humming, it's also important for us to say that
we all have a deep commitment to the success of the BCFCA
its members and to the flooring industry in BC.
We all wish you well in 2018 and look forward to being of
help and service for you in the future. Good Selling!
Chris Bland
President, BCFCA
