March 2012 Meeting
It’s true, Membership in the Texas Fence Association is truly a priceless commodity as we had geared up for our March 17, 2012 Meeting at the Omni Hotel in Houston, Texas with entertainment followed thereafter to the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo to watch Brad Paisley.
David Culbreth Jr. (TFA President) had taught a Certified Installer Program Class to nearly 20 members in the early morning on Saturday, March 17th. The class’ objectives included Preparation at the Shop and Preparation at the Job Site with key points, such as Verify Site Plan, Job Specifications and Requirements, Site Characteristics, Mark Fence Lines and Layout Material. In addition to learning the key areas, attendees were eager with answers to questions which concerned them. This class gave a very well insight on how installers should prepare themselves before, during and after each an every job.
Soon after the Certified Installer Program Class, a luncheon was scheduled in the Palm Court area at the Omni Hotel. Fine dining was on the menu! After the invocation, David Culbreth Jr. called the meeting to order and began to speak about the new TFA website developed by Geekinit in addition to explaining to members about the benefits of utilizing the Resource Center on the American Fence Association‘s website as well as other TFA-related news and information. David then went on to introduce Dick Hudgins, who is a member of the Board of Directors for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, to speak to TFA members about the history and how the Houston Livestock and Rodeo serves the Youth and Community.
All in all, the Texas Fence Association March Meeting was a blast. Learning, great fine dining and awesome entertainment! Indeed, a priceless commodity.
