CRA SoCal Meeting a Huge Success

The Cleaning and Restoration Association recently held its Southern California Regional Meeting at Abatix Corp. in Santa Fe Springs, CA. Attorney and former rock star, Ed Cross, spoke to a sold out room on what proved to be a hot topic: Cutting Edge Legal Strategies for the Restoration Professional. The feedback from attendees was overwhelmingly positive. Rock on Ed Cross!

Recently, elections were held during the CRA Board of Directors meeting and O.P. Almaraz of Allied Restoration Services, Inc. was elected as the new CRA president. Congratulations to O.P. who will officially take office at the CRA Annual Meeting held at Connections Convention in September.

Speaking of the Connections Convention & Trade Show, it’s right around the corner! CRA members receive a $100 discount on early registration. Registration includes three lunches, two receptions, convention material and tradeshow pass. CRA members that are full-paid registrants can attend the Power of 3 Event free! (a $197 value)!

So: a $100 discount on registration, three lunches, two parties, and the Power of 3 Event – That’s a total savings of $297! And did I mention it’s in Las Vegas? If you’re not already a CRA member, now’s the time to join. CRA semi-annual membership is only $220 (that’s $180 + a one time $40 application fee).

What you save will pay for your membership and keep $77 in your pocket (did I mention it’s in Vegas?) Visit us at for more information and to see a list of all our upcoming events.
