Old Business: Jack Horsley sent out a weekly training email regarding crawl space encapsulations and the TPCA stance on them. If any member needs a letter of reference to supply to their homeowners regarding how another company’s encapsulation affects their termite coverage there is one on the TPCA website.  Also some suppliers gave a little pushback regarding our stance which was better explained to them.

New Business: Upcoming training at Residex with Johnny Shelton of Shelton Analytics. He has created a system to help a company go paperless.   Harry is involved with a group called Ramp Across America which will be installing a ramp in Hampton on April 6th. All help or donations are appreciated and an e-mail will go out with more details.
