The CFI had a very successful Regional Education Day on Saturday March 19 at the Academy of Textiles and Flooring in Whittier. The event was free for all CFI members, and more than 50 attendees came from as far as San Diego and San Francisco to enjoy the day-long event, which included educational seminars from speakers Mike West, Noel Frank, Graham Bedwell, Mark Calvillo, and Lisa Wagner.

The day began with industry legend Mike West, who presented a fitting tribute to the Academy’s late founder and industry legend, Carl Williams.

In addition to great speakers, there was an on-going raffle throughout the day with great prizes, and a CFI swap meet where everyone had a chance to buy and sell their cleaning treasures. There was great food and BBQ provided by Ann Bedwell and our friends at Chemspec, which was prepared and cooked by our very own chairman, Matthew Sanders, and our friends at the Academy of Textiles and Flooring.

CFI would like to thank Bobbie Williams and her awesome staff at the Academy of Textiles and Flooring; Chemspec; ProChem; Pro’s Choice; MasterBlend; StonePro and WestPakUSA; Central California Cleaning Supply; Foothill Vacuum and Janitorial, and CFI Insurance provider Driscoll & Driscoll. Special thanks to all the CFI members and attendees, and a very special thanks to CFI Orange County/Inland Empire Chapter Director Jason Hensley and the rest of the CFI Board who helped make this event one to remember!
