CETA is here for You and Your business.

I would like to personally thank all the members of CETA and encourage all who read this to maintain their membership or to join CETA if you aren’t already a member. CETA works to protect, promote, preserve and improve the whole industry. CETA’s efforts benefit both members and non-members alike. Service on the Board of Directors has shown me how important CETA was for American Pressure, our ability to sell product and have our industry operate, AND I DIDN’T EVEN KNOW IT!

I am excited to tell you the CETA performance standard is gaining traction in the market place and aside from CETA logos in more places, I anticipate the performance standard will have a noticeable effect in the near future for those that embrace it. The CETA CPC100 performance standard was completed in 2014 as a uniform method for testing and rating pressure washers. Manufactures are increasingly using and buyers are increasingly requesting it.

One of the most exciting initiatives is the relaunch of CETA University, it will be a repository of great educational information that is available on demand and can be used to train yourself or your employees on everything from pump theory to human resource topics. We are bringing education back to our industry. If you would like to provide video or other content, we would love to have it.

PowerClean and our co-location with the PWNA continues to offer many benefits as well as a few challenges. Going into year two of the show we are confident that it is providing real benefits to CETA and our members while providing the potential to help with long term strategic objectives.

I am blessed to serve as CETA’s president. Debbie and Tracy are in the trenches every day making CETA and our industry better, thank them if you get the chance. They deserve it. The directors on the board are excellent, forward looking, and fun to serve with. It is amazing to see the board members unite around ideas that will provide more benefit to our members.

If you are ready or able to be more involved make sure you reach out to an existing board member, committee member or Debbie and Tracy to discuss involvement. As we work together to improve the industry, we will also improve our businesses and ourselves.
