Board of Directors

The Concrete Polishing Association of America was organized in November, 2009 at the request of polishing contractors and manufacturers. Its purpose... to have a non biased organization to lead the industry. The major concern from contractors that surfaced was manufacturer involvement and influence. However, the Executive Board realized that manufacturers must be involved to help lead the industry. Therefore, we created a Board of Directors that balances the two parties. The Board consist of 10 polishing contractors and 9 manufacturer seats (with the 10th being designated for an architect). The Executive Board seats are reserved for polishing contractors to ensure that the organization remains as fair and unbiased as possible. The Board of Directors is guided by a Leadership Committee as well as the members of the organization. Each position has a "term limit" to also ensure that the organization is being fair, unbiased, and has a continuous source of fresh ideas and energy.
