Welcome to the New Year! It’s always a time of renewed optimism — even more so after 2020 when all of our personal and business lives were so impacted by the pandemic. Unfortunately, health experts agree the negative influences will continue until at least the middle of 2021.
With the incoming Biden administration will also come an outpouring of new rules and regulations. These will likely include wage and tax code changes, as well as ones on allowable business operation and worker safety requirements given the ongoing pandemic. Add to that the usual emerging improvements in how to conduct business; changes in products and equipment; new ways to track expenses, deadbeat third party vendors; and, much more. Falling behind can spell the demise of your company. Conversely, getting a quick grasp on new info can provide opportunities to position your firm at the forefront of your market area.
The World Sweeping Association doesn’t just save you money via its many discount programs. With the exclusive WSA Member Update sent on the 1st and 15th of each month, WSA keeps its member companies updated on a continual basis. Few other associations—and none in the sweeping industry—can say the same.
In addition to the pandemic, 2020 brought rampant company consolidations, increasing choices in alternative energy sweepers, and the introduction of the first-ever completely driverless sweeper, to name just a few. If there was ever a year in which we can all benefit by having help from an Association of our peers, juried and assisted by a ‘quarterback’ with over three decades of experience in helping sweeping contractors, 2021 will be that year. Count on WSA to continue providing the targeted information needed to make the best of whatever the coming year has in store!
