The National Tile Contractors Association (NTCA) says it has renewed and expanded its sponsorship program with Daltile for 2010, which includes a series of training and educational seminars designed to benefit professional tile contractors, architects and designers. Daltile will sponsor up to 70 NTCA workshops across the United States, with additional stops in Canada scheduled for Vancouver and Toronto.
The 2010 NTCA training and education
program includes seven architectural workshops at Daltile Gallery Selection
Centers in Atlanta, Anaheim, Chicago, Dallas, Houston, Manhattan and San Diego.
The NTCA “Tile & Stone Gallery” workshops hosted at Daltile locations are
geared to present architects and designers with important tile and stone
industry information, specification details, new materials and methods, while
providing the opportunity to earn CEU credits.
In addition, Michael Whistler, the
new West Coast regional director for the NTCA, will host a special training presentation
in Spanish on August 11, in Escondido, CA. Whistler, the latest addition to the
NTCA team, will present 30 workshops in the Western states, as well as the
Vancouver session. Gerald Sloan, NTCA training director, will present an
additional 39 workshops in the Eastern United States and Toronto.
“Daltile is pleased to take our long standing support of the
NTCA to a new level as evidenced by our expanded 2010 program,” said John
Turner, Sr., general manager of DalTile Corporation commercial sales and
Bart Bettiga, NTCA executive
director said, “As long as the NTCA has been performing workshops, Daltile has
been a consistent supporter of the program. In these challenging economic
times, both the NTCA and Daltile are committed to being leaders in promoting
the successful installation of tile, stone and allied surfaces, through training
Workshops generally follow a
four-hour format with refreshments and snacks provided at each host location.
