CRA Seeing Success with Regional Meetings

May 11, 2011

The Cleaning and Restoration Association held its Northern California Regional Meeting on March 25 in Sacramento, Calif., which was a huge success! Karen Wells, the founder of “Success in Sneakers” was the presenter at this event. She discussed how to turn your staff into a Championship Team, helpful ways to take your business from invisible to successful, ways to blast through any sales objection with ease and confidence and more!

Our CRA Regional Meeting turned out to be a great educational workshop as well as a wonderful networking opportunity. Thank you to all of our CRA Members and Non-Members who joined us. We look forward to presenting our next CRA Northern California Regional Meeting.

CRA is holding our Southern California Regional Meeting in Los Angeles on May 26 with presenter Ed Cross. Ed will be speaking about “Cutting Edge Legal Strategies for the Restoration Professional.” Ed will present a lively, interactive look into new legal issues that have arisen in the restoration industry and innovative strategies to a avoid them, including:
  • Contract drafting that will get you paid and keep you out of court
  • How to turn up the heat on a customer who pockets insurance proceeds
  • How to force a mortgage company to release insurance drafts
  • Mold Litigation: alive, dormant or dead?
  • New regulations for Mechanic’s Lien procedures
  • Risk Management in the New Age of Restoration and much more!
