  • Supports the Next Generation. FCICA has established the Successors, providing an avenue for commercial flooring professionals age 40 and younger to lead, inform, network and engage the community. During FCICA events, the Successors sponsor an educational session and attendees 40 and younge are invited to special networking events. The Successors also select and support a local charity at each event for all attendees to contribute to.

    “The education and training that they (DCO’s young employees) get onsite for a couple of days is well worth it. It is definitely an investment that we are willing to make and I would absolutely encourage other companies to do the same.”
    Curtis Blanton | DCO Commercial Floors
    “I came expecting a wealth of knowledge and education and what I found was something so much more. It was the successors initiative….It helps us to be more educated and informed with people that are our own age so that we are able to bridge the gap between us and the people that paved the way for us.”
