Hello NPC Members!

Welcome to Houston, TX where we will all convene for the 31st Annual Conference of the NPC. I am really looking forward to seeing everyone there!  This will be a very special conference for the NPC and its family of members.  This year we lost a dear friend and industry leader with the unexpected passing of Greg Garrett.  We will be celebrating his life during the conference in a special tribute honoring all he has done for our industry over these many years.  Please plan to join us for this very special conference.

Once again, the NPC conference will be featuring world class education from the best of the best.  This year we will have 20 education classes and product presentations.  We are offering “Porcelain & Glass Tile Installation”, which will be a ‘hands on’ live teaching session.  We will also host another ‘hands on’ demo.  This time the topic is ‘Waterproofing – Classroom Instruction & Hands on Demo.”  There will also be a Plaster Round Table panel discussing tips and tricks you can use every day.  I could go and on, but I think you get the idea.  The education offering is packed with the information you need to improve your business.

As we all know, the greatest value from the Annual Conference is the opportunity to network with fellow professionals from across the country.  From the Opening Reception until our annual vendor trade show, you will have plenty of opportunity to visit with your peers and compare notes.   This year our Opening Reception will feature Casino Night.  I’m sure you’ll agree, it will be a lot of fun!  Plan to stay until the vendor reception Friday evening to see the latest offerings from vendors across the industry and have a chance to win our grand prize.

It’s been quite a year since we last met.  The NPC has accomplished a lot during that time.  I look forward to seeing you at the Royal Sonesta in Houston to reconnect and update you about NPC’s latest offerings.

NPC Chairman
