For over 25 years the Northeastern Ohio Floor Covering Association flourished as a place where retailers and salespersons could go to for information and some fun. They sponsored scholarships for children of members and helped needy ones at holiday time. But alas they are no more, lack of interest was cited. No one showed up at events, dues were not paid on time, no one had time to schedule speakers and presenters at events. The list went on and on. So my question is how important do you think these things are and do you support them in your area?
