Big Changes at WCCA

It was only recently when I received an email from Window Coverings Association of America advising me that its' Executive Director, Mark Nortman, was going for his interim leave of absence. I do not know Mark Nortman personally, but I have talked to him before, over the phone, when I first joined the WCCA. He was very gracious and he explained to me the mission and goals of WCCA and how it can help my business.

Window Coverings Association of America is the only non-profit trade organization founded in 1987 serving the window coverings industry on a national level. The WCAA helps its members through educational and sales/marketing programs, and providing great opportunities in networking among members and experts in the window coverings industry.

Today I received another advise from WCAA that they are moving their office to Gold River in California. It is now headed by the new Executive Director, Jenna Abbott. Jenna is currently the owner of Sew Elegant, a design firm based in Sacramento, California for a little more than 8 years.

Amy Schaeffer, the efficient administrative assistant to Mark Nortman, apparently will not join them in their move to their new location in River Gold, California. I wish her all the best and luck in her new job search.

Although I was saddened by the big changes, I am pleased to welcome the new Executive Director, Jenna Abbott, in her new endeavor. I hope that she continues the challenging job of providing education, sales and marketing programs, and the many opportunities and support that all members could benefit from the organization.

Welcome aboard Jenna!
