CRA is Continuing to Grow in 2011

March 1, 2011


CRA is growing, not only in number of members, but we are also growing as a family. We have been listening and responding to our membership about benefits that our members would like to see from the association as well as including more networking opportunities for all CRA members.

CRA offers new webinars on business development, restoration and carpet cleaning. There will be a Marketing and Business Development webinar on April 6 at 4pm PST. For the Carpet Cleaning webinars, the upcoming dates are March 14 at 7pm PST and May 9 at 7pm PST. For more information please contact brichardson@crassociation.org.

Our next regional meeting is planned for the end of March, and will be in the Sacramento area. The topic of this meeting will be Successful Marketing Tips. We look forward to providing a great networking environment and helpful tips for those in the cleaning and restoration industry. Please stay tuned for additional information and event registration.
