One of the focuses for the 2009 Concrete Foundations Association (CFA) Summer Meeting, which will be held July 29 - August 1 at Amelia Island, Fla., is "Why Waste a Good Recession?" The CFA has assembled a great line-up of educational programs to assist commercial and residential foundation contractors through this time of economic hardship. The speakers will discuss topics that encourage contractors to take advantage of the downturn to kick-start their marketing, educate themselves on sustainable offerings and learn new skills. My magazine, Concrete Contractor, is sponsoring our columnist Bob Harris of the Decorative Concrete Institute to speak to CFA members on the topic of decorative concrete. Hear Bob talk about what he'll discuss at his seminar.
