Socrates said, “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” During the last few months, your Board of Directors has labored long and hard in making a decision which will expand our foundation and open doors of growth of services to licensed trades. The Association will be changing its name and objective in 2020. Stay tuned for the announcement.
The updated objective for the association will be to elevate the levels of competence, professionalism and success of businesses and their employees that operate within the licensed trades industry in South Carolina to the benefit of the consumer. For this organization “licensed trades” includes individuals within a business that have taken and passed a skilled trade licensing exam in the state of South Carolina.
Many of our members currently provide plumbing and electrical services. Your Board of Directors believes there is strength in numbers and our broadened focus will provide a larger voice at the State House to make positive impacts on your business.
We ask you to join with us during these changes and commit to playing a role in building a better future for all licensed contractors. I invite you to email firstname.lastname@example.org with any thoughts or feedback you would like shared with our board of directors during this process.
Thank you for your commitment to this industry. From my home to yours, Happy New Years to you and your staff.
