If the uptick in attendance at this year’s Closet Conference is any indication on our industry – we are in for a big year! Attendance was up, there were 30 first time exhibitors and more machines on display than ever before. 

And the ACSP isn’t resting now – we are doubling down!

We have already hosted three free webinars and are continuing these monthly sessions the rest of the year. 

We just approved a complete website redesign. It will have a responsive design and be SEO friendly – (computer speak for work on your iPad and rank at the top on Google).
With this redesign we aren’t just targeting our members we are planning to speak to homeowners.  There will be a blog and a member profile page so that you can upload photos and target potential customers. We want to drive traffic to your site and promote you.  

Other features include:
    • Lead sharing
    • Find a pro
    • Message board
    • Access to past webinars and the list goes on…

The release of the new site is scheduled for the beginning of June and is going to make a huge impact for the ACSP, our members and our industry. We also started discussions with Woodworking Network for next year’s Closet Conference on April 11th – 13th in Schaumburg, Illinois. 

For the first time ever we are planning to test and certify your designers at the conference. Your designers will be able to attend the Closet Conference, walk the show floor and take the ACSP Certification Test all in the same day!

Can you think of a better way to standout in your market than having all of your designers being ACSP Certified?

I am very excited for the coming year and the future of the ACSP. I hope you will join us because it’s going to be some ride. To become a member or get involved email me at

Stay tuned for more to come…
