The 2019 Associates and Affiliates Night at Lucky Labrador in NW Portland was a BLAST!!

With 27 Contractor Members, 38 Associate and Affiliate Members and 4 Contractor Guests it was a lively atmosphere to be sure.


We welcomed:

  • New Contractor Member, Garrett Wood, with Threshold Painting & Maintenance LLC
  • Two new Associate Members joined that night – Nick Blankl with Consilium Wealth Advisory and Larry Johnson with LaPorte Insurance
  • And 4 new Affiliate Members were in attendance – Enrique Guttierrez for Shurtech Brands LLC, Charles Hunter and Hilary Dovey with Sashco Inc., Brandon Marten for Marten Associates, and Doug and Steve Lumbard and Dave Ehrlich with Linc Sales.

THANK YOU TO ALL ASSOCIATE AND AFFILIATE MEMBERS who were able to participate in YOUR SPECIAL NIGHT to shine – you made the evening a huge success!

So, as we begin a new season in this crazy industry (laughing-out-loud), my hope, this year, is that Chapter Members who need help with business challenges will find sincere advice through networking efforts with both seasoned owners, product representatives and newcomers to the wallcovering industry. My prayer is that we all find a healthy balance of prosperity in our work and joy in our personal relationships. And my desire is that we all remember why it’s good karma to give back to the industry that affords us our prosperity and joy, by demonstrating a willingness to help raise the bar so that those who follow us can enjoy prosperity too.

PLEASE lend support to your 2019 Board of Directors by stepping forward to help with committee work. Tristan will be very appreciative!
