Giving Back to the PDCA

Joshua Abramson at PDCA 2012

It was another great time again this year at the PDCA Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada. We got to meet with old friends and even met some new ones. After learning from Bob Cusumano about the PDCA Industry Standards, I was able teach an Emerging Leaders class with my good friend and fellow painting contractor Dave Scaturro with Alpine Painting in New Jersey. We shared innovative marketing ideas and how technology is being used amongst the professional painting contractors. The following day, I was able to teach a class on estimating, job costing and business planning to a standing room only class. It is very rewarding to be able to give back to the trade organization that first gave to me.

During our trade show, we were able to teach a lot of guys about the estimating software we developed back in 2005, called One Step Estimating
