An email blast, followed by a personal note and all of a sudden EIMA has seven (7) new contractor members. Thanks to the effort of Phil Catalano, this is exactly what happened.
Phil works for Home Acres Building Supply, a distributor for STO, and an EIMA member since the mid-90s. His personal efforts to increase the association’s membership were validated in the March-April edition of EIFS Briefs, when he noticed that 7 of the 13 new members were individuals he personally reached out to. Upon this realization, he reached out to EIMA staff to share his story.
This example shows the power of a single member. EIMA is 7 voices stronger, because one individual spoke up.
The value of EIMA is being a partner in their efforts to promote excellence, quality standards, and the benefits of EIFS claddings. EIMA works diligently with insurance companies, relocation companies, and code officials to help market high quality wall cladding solutions, with only the best manufacturers. –says Phil
