News and Views From the SCRT

Happy New Year from SCRT to the entire industry.

Happy New Year from SCRT to the entire industry. It has been an exciting year for SCRT, with the administration change and moving the office hundreds of miles away from south Georgia to The Great State of Texas. It is complete now and everything should be back on schedule by the time you read this article.

The other exciting news is the formation of the new International Trade Association named the Inspection Cleaning Restoration Association. SCRT is involved and excited about the idea of bringing cohesiveness to our industry. The official kick off for ICRA was January 1. It is very exciting that seven of the 14 trade associations have decided to work together for the benefit of their members. The interim officers have been elected, bylaws have been written, budgets are being worked on, and things are moving quickly and efficiently.

The associations that are involved are SCRT, MCRA, CRA, MSPCA, NEIRC, PACR and NYRCI. There will be a lot more to come from ICRA in the following months that will be exciting to the membership in what benefits will be available to each member. As events take place, I will keep you informed, so be watching your emails.

The Ohio SCRT chapter held a Clean Trust CEC approved meeting on December 15, with more than 20 attending. Mark Violand led the class on a demo of graft repair on Berber carpet. In the lobby of the hotel, members were able to practice their seaming skills. It’s amazing how simple this value added service is to learn and perform for you clients.
