WFCA's Judy Marsh.
The board of directors of the World Floor Covering Association (WFCA) and the Floor Covering Industry Foundation (FCIF) have entered into a agreement whereby the WFCA will manage the day-to-day operations of the FCIF.

The FCIF is dedicated to assist floor covering industry personnel who face catastrophic illness and extreme financial hardship. The WFCA takes on responsibilities previously handled by The Messersmith Group (TMG), a Sacramento, Calif.-based management firm that provides services to associations and foundations. With this agreement, the WFCA will provide management services without fee as an in-kind contribution to the foundation.

Although the WFCA will manage the FCIF, each organization will retain its respective boards of directors. Fundraising responsibilities will be assigned to a yet to-be-determined entity. WFCA veteran staff member Judy Marsh will function as executive administrator of the FCIF.
