Message from the President - Fall 2016

On behalf of the ESICA Board of Directors and myself, I hope everyone has been enjoying these beautiful summer months!

I am happy to report that our recent Spring Conference was another great success! The historic Colonial Williamsburg area made for a great environment for friends, fellow contractors, distributors and suppliers to reconnect and also for new relationships to be built.

I would like to personally thank the speakers who presented their valuable information to conference attendees, as well as a special thank you to one of our Founding Fathers, Thomas Jefferson, for taking the time to speak with us. I would also like to thank every one of our sponsors, because without your continued support, none of these conferences would be possible.

Looking ahead, the 2016 ESICA CSIA Fall Conference is scheduled for September 8th through 10th, at the Myrtle Beach Marriott in beautiful Myrtle Beach, SC.  Hotel reservations are already being taken and registration is now open on our website!

For our members, ESICA Conferences offer a great opportunity to network with other professionals in the Insulation industry.  Our members gain vital knowledge on industry trends, new products and current events that could affect their business.  As with any conference, new members are always welcome to attend and enjoy all that ESICA has to offer. If you know anyone who may be interested in joining ESICA, please contact the association office at 516-922-7855.

I look forward to seeing you all soon in Myrtle Beach!

Yours Truly,

Past President's Message
Dear ESICA Members,

When I next see everyone from our ESICA family in May at our annual spring conference in Savannah, GA, my title will be "Past President". I do not use the term family loosely. I fondly think of our organization as such. It has been a pleasure interacting on a personal level while exchanging ideas and networking in a relaxed atmosphere of camaraderie and respect. I know our new President, Jerry McCaffrey will do a fantastic job and I wish him a successful and enjoyable two years. I would like to thank everyone again for your support.

Sincerely,
Barbara J Sweeney
ESICA Past President
