Upcoming Plans for CRA

January 5, 2011
The CRA will begin holding its Annual Membership Meeting at the Connections Convention in Las Vegas each year. 



The CRA will begin holding its Annual Membership Meeting at Connection Convention in Las Vegas each year. We have also created a “Marketing and Business Development” series that will begin in 2011, and webinars be presented that are designed to help our members and their staffs to make the most of their marketing efforts.

We are expanding our webinars to include not only carpet and upholstery cleaning, sales and marketing training but to the fire and water damage restoration field. The webinars will be presented once every other month and feature topics of interest that you select or are current issues that the industry as a whole are facing.

We have arranged for our CRA members that have volunteered to establish, organize and facilitate four face-to-face meetings per year in each of the regions of Sacramento, Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix and the San Francisco Bay area. These programs will be educational and will be in a half-day or all-day formats.

Other Outreach training programs designed to create business relationships for members have been scheduled. We have created strategic alliances with several other organizations that highlight the benefits of using CRA members.
