CFI logoThe CFI’s Opportunities 2013 event in October was a great success. All the attendees had a good time learning about marketing, stone care, spotting techniques, color correction, proper insurance and commercial cleaning over the two-day event. There were many CFI members and some non-members that traveled long distances for the event, even a couple from Canada. After the education part was over, everyone got to network with the vendors who came, showing off their latest products and tools. The CFI would like to give a big “thank you” to all the Instructors and vendors for making this event so great - it could not have happened without you! Looking forward to next year’s event.

The CFI also held its annual business meeting, where the new officers and directors were sworn in and the CFI Awards were giving out. The new officers and director are:

  • Charlene Locke – Secretary/Treasurer
  • Terrace Jones –Orange County Director

There will be a Chapter meeting on December 5, 2013 at the Academy of Textiles in Anaheim, CA at 5:30 p.m. The topic of the night will be “specially spotting” with Anne Bedwell from CTI.
