The 2015 Painting and Decorating EXPO came to a close with the 2nd Annual Paint Ball, an awards ceremony hosted by PDCA that celebrates outstanding work in the painting and decorating industry. The big winner of the night, taking home awards in four different categories, was Alpine Painting and Sandblasting Contractors, Inc.

It was standing room only for the course "Improving Commercial Painting Subcontracts and Technical Specifications," hosted by the PDCA Commercial Forum at the 2015 Painting and Decorating EXPO. A panel presentation featuring representatives from AIA, CSI, MPI, FCA, the PDCA Standards Committee, commercial contractors, and of course the PDCA Commercial Forum gathered to discuss
PDCA is pleased to announce a new National Partner! Federated Insurance has pledged their support of the painting and decorating industry by entering at this prestigious level, and both parties are looking forward to a long and successful partnership.
If you ask Darylene Dennon, CEO of Solid Energy Inc. and PDCA National Board Member, what it takes to succeed as a woman in the industry, she will tell you, “Three things: passion, enthusiasm, and vision. You need all three of those or you can’t get where you want to go. If you can’t see yourself somewhere, then how will you ever get there?” Darylene says that these values and her membership in PDCA are what took her from humble roots to where she is today.
PDCA's Commercial Forum is under new direction. The Forum held elections at the Commercial Forum Conference in San Antonio, and Ron Yarbrough, President and Founder of Pro-Spec Painting, Inc., Vineland, NJ, was voted president. He intends to see the Commercial Forum become the undisputed resource for professional commercial contractors in the United States, and eventually, from around the globe.
