FROM THE CHAIR
Business is Good
Pete Smith, CTCB
At the end of
the summer we surveyed our
builders to gauge the season and
how 2016 compared to 2015.
Across the board, in separate
surveys of Tennis Court, Track
and Field builders, business
appears to be up as much as
10-20% or more for most
builders. A similar survey of
tennis court builders last year
showed similar results,
indicating at least two solid
years of growth. A summary of
those results are included in
this issue of Newsline. Many
thanks to the builders who
completed these “quick pulse”
surveys when they were sent out.
This is valuable benchmarking
information for our individual
companies and ASBA can only
provide it if we get a good
response from our members. The
next time we send out a quick
pulse survey, please take 2-3
minutes to complete the
information so that we can
provide you with the aggregate
now you should have received your membership dues renewal notices for
the coming year (ASBA’s membership year begins October 1st). Please
renew your membership and continue to support the efforts that ASBA is
making on our behalf – with programs to increase awareness among
consumers and industry partners, and education and training to enhance
the pipeline for talent for our companies to hire.
I hope to see all of you December 2nd -6th at the Omni Amelia Island
Plantation, in Amelia Island, Florida for the Technical Meeting. This
year’s meeting will feature a new “Meeting App” that has been developed
to make your TM experience easier and more fulfilling. Watch for more
information prior to the TM with instructions on how to download the app
on your smartphones prior to arriving in Amelia Island.
ASBA committees and task forces have been very busy this year on
initiatives and programs that were born from last year’s Strategic
Planning exercises. We’re excited to share updates on these initiatives
during the TM in December. Some of these updates will surprise you!
If you have not already made your travel arrangements for the TM, I
would encourage you to book your hotel TODAY. The room block is filling
quickly and we are, once again, on pace to grow our meeting attendance
substantially over last year. Last-minute planners may find themselves
scrambling for a hotel room.
See you in Amelia Island!
