RIA Convention will focus on health and safety

The Restoration Industry Association will hold its 65th Annual Convention & Exhibition from March 23-27, at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta on Peachtree Street in Atlanta, Ga.

“With so much in the media today about H1N1, indoor air quality issues, and going green, the primary focus of the convention will be on health and safety and how those topics apply to cleaning and restoration professionals,” the association said.

Dan Coughlin of The Coughlin Group will give the first keynote address on how to lead a team and accelerate its impact in today’s environment. Barbara Manis, M.D., of National Medical Advisory/Building Health Sciences, will give a keynote address on health issues affecting the restoration industry. Several exceptional education options will be offered before and after the Convention event, according to the RIA.
