The CFI Report - August 2012

The first annual Cleaning College event held between CFI and CCINW in Reno, NV from June 27-29 was a big success. Over 40 companies from the western region came to the three-day event to learn and network together. Multiple attendees said how they enjoyed the advanced information and that they could go back to use what they learned in their business right away. Magic Wand sponsored a fun golf event at the driving range where they gave away prizes. Everyone had a great time networking and socializing. We would like to give a big “thank you” to all of the great speakers at the event: Jim Pemberton, Tony Wheelwright, Patrick Moffett, Mike Kerner, Patrick Paluga, Bryan Thomson, Lisa Wagner, Jeff Cross and Graham Bedwell. Also, we appreciate and thank all of the vendors that supported and participated in the event - we could not have done it without you!

Come join CFI’s Annual Business Meeting at the Las Vegas Connections Convention and Trade Show September 5 at 7:30 p.m. Witness new officers and directors as they’re sworn in. CFI will also give away awards to participants that have provided more than exceptional performance toward our industry. All CFI members and non-members are welcome to attend. If you are not a CFI member, call today to join one of the oldest trade associations in the industry. You will receive $100 off admission for Connections by being a member. See you there September 5-7!
