A Word from the President. . .

From time to time, contractors and suppliers in the tile industry find themselves looking for information or help in areas that are beyond their expertise. This is where membership in TCAA can make a difference! For over 100 years, TCAA has been dedicated to promoting the tile industry and to ensuring that our members have the information, skills and tools needed to ensure the highest levels of professionalism, reliability, skilled craftsmanship and technical performance in the industry.

TCAA membership offers a wealth of training and technical assistance. Our annual conventions host an exciting array of sessions ranging from IMI training classes, ANSI 108 and TCNA Handbook updates to expert supplier forums presenting the newest innovations in tiles, tools and techniques on a large range of installation and technical issues. And our knowledgeable technical committee members are always available to assist with a member's question or challenge.

TCAA's partnership with International Masonry Institute (IMI) to develop the "Trowel of Excellence" certification program is another example of how we work to promote both the industry and our members. This certification, offered only to members of TCAA, provides visible evidence that a union tile contractor stands head and shoulders above the competition. Companies that achieve Trowel of Excellence certification demonstrate better customer service, superior installations and adherence to higher industry standards. Successful architects, CO's and general contractors know and understand that well run projects need professional, highly qualified companies. Setting yourself apart from the pack with Trowel of Excellence certification gives you that much-needed competitive edge.

With TCAA's strong ties to local and national unions and other tile related associations, you will be partnered with the "core" of the tile industry. TCAA's relationship with IMI has flourished and fostered a high level of commitment from the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers (IUBAC). This partnership provides the opportunity for your voice to be heard and your concerns addressed on issues that affect your company.

TCAA membership also provides you the opportunity to network with and build personal relationships with tile contractors and suppliers nationwide.
