Chairman Kelly with Synergy Flooring shared, "Since we've been unable to meet in person, FCICA's virtual events - last fall's Mid-Year Meeting and our second online event, the upcoming May Virtual Meeting offer industry professionals the opportunity to remain informed and engaged with others in the flooring community. What's unique about online events is they allow for ease of participation and by offering the event for free to attendees, they are accessible to everyone - you can't beat that! FCICA leadership, educational presenters and our associate members have all contributed to a really great line up of sessions. Together with our two keynote speakers, two important figures in the industry, Scott Humphrey, World Floor Covering Association and Tim Baucom, Shaw Industries - FCICA's meeting is a must attend event - I encourage everyone to register!"
