CFI held its Annual Business Meeting on September 17, 2011 at the Academy of Textiles and Flooring in Whittier, Calif. Bobbie Williams graciously hosted this event, and we all appreciate her help and hospitality.

During the meeting the new Board of Directors was sworn in and the CFI annual awards were presented to the recipients. The new chapter directors this year are Terry Jones for the Inland Empire Chapter and James Casas for the Los Angeles Chapter. Norma McCormick was sworn in as the new President-Elect and Matt Cole as Secretary/Treasurer.

This year’s award recipients are Kurt Holsinger – the Bill Bailey Award; Lisa Wagner – the Joe Laurino Award; Jason Hensley – the Dick Maplesden Award for outstanding Chapter Director; and Kim Cole was awarded the Jackie Maplesden Award.

Everyone enjoyed the great taco lunch and lots of wonderful desserts. In addition to the fun and food, there were three members who donated their time and expertise by speaking to the group and sharing insights into our industry. We would like to give special thanks to Mike West, Pat Moffett, and Ralph Denning for speaking at our event. Everyone enjoyed the information these industry leaders had to give. We are looking forward to another great year at the CFI.
