EIMA Heads to San Antonio for Annual Meeting and Festivities


The 2013 EIMA Annual Meeting is set to land at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, in San Antonio, Texas on March 19-20.  The two day event, held in conjunction with the Association of Wall and Ceiling Industry’s (AWCI) Convention and INTEX EXPO 2013, will be full of meetings, receptions and other events that have become traditional parts of the week, while also including a couple new events this year.


The EIMA General Session will be headlined by Scott Friedman presenting “Celebrate: The Secret to Greater Productivity and Performance”.  Friedman is trained in improvisation comedy; he is the two-time past president of NSA/CO and served as the National Speakers Association’s National President 2004-2005. Take a look at some of what you might see with this speech. Following the General Session, participants will have their chance to show off their drives and putting at the Quarry Golf Club, as they compete for the 2013 EIMA Cup.  In addition to the EIMA Cup, there are several individual awards as well, just ask Mike Murphy of Dryvit Systems Inc., who won several of them last year.
