President's Message - Fall 2018
Tuesday, January 8, 2019
It was great seeing everyone at our 2018 Spring Conference in Amelia Island! Thank you to the conference sponsors, speakers, attendees, and the weather for allowing this event to be another immense success!
A topic of wide discussion at the conference was cybersecurity and how it effects our industry. Did you know that cyberattacks are the fastest growing crime in the United States? The construction industry is not immune to cyberattacks, therefore, it is best to be aware of these security risks before something happens. We have a great article in this issue from Construction Executive, a publication of Associated Builders and Contractors, that you can’t afford to miss!
I would like to thank the ESICA Review Editors, Jerry McCaffrey and Brad Power! Without their knowledge and expertise, this publication would not be the valuable resource it is today. Throughout the year they are working with our association management team to compile the best and most relevant topics to be brought to our readers. Be sure to check out our “Thanks for the Memories” article, where Jerry and Brad stepped out from behind the scenes to give us some of their most valued memories of ESICA over the years. Both gentlemen have been a part of ESICA for many years, so they are sure to have some great stories!
Our next conference, which is our joint conference with Central States Insulation Association (CSIA), will be held in Savannah, Georgia from September 6th – 8th. The Westin Savannah Golf Resort & Spa is a beautiful resort that is nestled along the banks of the Savannah River and is a perfect venue for our exciting conference! As always, we’re planning some fantastic experiences and events that include amazing dinners, breakout meetings, great leisure activities… and our Keynote Speaker, Ty Bennett, who will captivate your attention with “The Power of Storytelling”.
I look forward to seeing everyone in Savannah, the beautiful Coastal City!
