RIA announces new initiatives, interim executive director

The Restoration Industry Association has announced several changes that will continue to have a positive impact on the association and the services it provides to its members and the industry.

The trade association has retooled and reinvented its convention beginning with the 66th Annual Convention & Exhibition in Colorado Springs, Colo., March 7-11, 2011.

RIA has also appointed Tim Shaw of the Association and Communications Management Group to serve as the interim executive director following the departure of Don Manger.

“Tim will be working closely with the staff to execute many of our new and existing programs,” said RIA President Frank Headen, CR, WLS, CMH. “Don Manger made many excellent changes to the association during his tenure and we wish him well.  As part of aligning RIA strategically from a financial and operational standpoint, RIA’s board of directors will retain a management firm to assist in handling daily association operations.”
