Board of Directors

The Concrete Polishing Association of America was organized in November 2009 at the request of polishing contractors and manufacturers. Its purpose is to be a non biased organization to lead the concrete polishing industry. The major concern from contractors that surfaced was manufacturer influence. Nevertheless, it is recognized that manufacturers must be involved to help lead the industry. Therefore, a Board of Directors that balances the two parties was created. The Board consists of the President, Vice President, 4 polishing contractor representatives, 5 manufacturer/distributor representatives, and an associate representative. The Board of Directors is guided and elected by the members of the organization.
