The Concrete Foundations Association (CFA), a North American association dedicated to improving the quality and acceptance of cast-in-place concrete foundations, has announced the newest terms for its Board of Directors as well as a new President to direct its next two-year period.
During the CFA Annual Convention, held earlier this month at the Hyatt Tamaya in Santa Ana Pueblo, N.M., the attending members elected Tom Brown of TJ Construction Unlimited Inc. in Ely, Iowa and Jerry Hoyer of Hoyer Poured Walls Inc. of Marysville, Ohio to serve three-year terms on the Board of Directors. In addition, Jim Rowe of Fastrac Foundations in Pittsburgh, Penn. and Amanda Morris of Herbert Construction Company of Atlanta, were re-elected to the Board for three-year terms.
Also at the meeting, Dan Bromley of ABI Corporation of Lee's Summit, Mo. assumed the role of CFA president, replacing Brad Schrock of Westfield, Ind. Bromley had previously served and will continue to function as chair of the new Foundation Contractor Certification Program that successfully started during the same event in New Mexico. His plans for the Association over this next two-year period include extending the recognition of the certification program on a national level and seeing the benefits for contractor members of the CFA continue to increase. These benefits would include opportunities for lower insurance rates, safety programs and management network groups among the already rich opportunities.
Bromley becomes the 23rd president in the rich history of the CFA and establishes the second father/son leadership. His father, Gary Bromley, was president from 1995-1996. Previously, Larry and Dave Clark became the first father/son presidential family, following Larry's inaugural term in 1976-78 and Dave 's term from 1996-97. One other pair added to this history of lineage are Joe Carr, who served as President from 1993-95, and the current Past President (06-08), Brad Schrock, his son-in-law. The heritage of the CFA seen through the tenures of these gentlemen speaks of the passion held by the entire membership.
