It is with great humility and excitement that I welcome you to the 2017 iteration of the SPFA Annual Convention. Make no mistake about it, the show has become a central element of the sprayfoam industry, and has grown over 200% in the past decade. That's an average of 20% per year. Something most companies would be excited about. And I am, but I also recognize that our industry is growing faster than others, and it has its own challenges that we try to address in SPFA for the good of all. I hope that you take full advantage of all the show has to offer.
