The Cleaning and Restoration Association has come a long way
since May 2009. Having 130-plus members join our association in just 19 months
is an outstanding achievement. We are proud of all that we have been able to
accomplish and we could not have done so without the help and support of our
members and especially our board of directors.
In 2010, CRA began mailing a quarterly newsletter to all of
our members, started the WFCA Trade Scholarship program and established an
impressive website presence that promotes our member companies. We have made it
a priority to advertise and create relationships between our members with other
industries as part of our Outreach Program, and have a customized Insurance
We are also implementing a Mentoring Program, designed to
show commitment to the next generation of cleaning and restoration
professionals. By having experienced mentors serve as trusted advisors to those
new to the industry, the program will help continue the tradition of success
and innovation in the industry, and help strengthen the future workforce
through the passing on of lessons, experiences and career options.
In 2011, CRA is planning to expand its committees. In
addition to working on a schedule of quarterly member meetings for regular
member companies to meet, network, and create new relationships with our
associate member companies and others, we are currently looking for volunteers
who are willing to help on the following committees: Media; Communications
& Activities; Education; Workshop; Membership; Outreach Program; Long Range
Planning and Mentoring. The more helpful hands we have participating in these
committees, the greater the benefit to our members. We’re also looking for
skilled volunteers interested in being part of our board of directors.
To be considered for CRA Committees, CRA Board of Directors
or to sign up for the Mentoring Program, please contact Brandi Richardson at
