IWCA Conference Recap

A few weeks ago, we were on a plane headed to Florida for the IWCA Conference. We’ve been going to this conference for many years now, but each time we have a great experience and the opportunity to meet incredible new people and connect with existing customers. This year was no exception.

We were able to witness the new board of directors being sworn in. We’d like to give special congratulations to Jason York of ezwindowsinc.com on becoming the new President Elect of IWCA. (We appologize for the incorrect information, Noa Pederson is the current president. Jason York is president-elect. Our error has been fixed in the article.)Text We’d also like to extend congrats to Omar Estrada from Scotties Charlotte division for winning the window cleaner of the year award. The conference itself raised over $4,000 dollars from donations and the silent auction that went towards the local Boys and Girls club.
Our friends at Ettore celebrated their 80th anniversary. It was really awesome when we were presented with the next story that was so wonderful and inspiring. We meet Jan Demczur, the window cleaner that was stuck in the elevator of one of the Twin Towers on September 11th, 2001 with some other people. Jan was able to use the channel of his Ettore squeegee to pry open the elevator doors when the building lost power. When the channel fell down the elevator’s threshold crack, the story miraculously did not end there. Jan and the others stuck in the elevator used the handle to dig through the drywall and into a bathroom where they escaped moments before the tower fell. TextThe story itself has been shared all over social media and it was truly inspiring to hear it from the man himself.

We always look forward to the IWCA conference and enjoyed this one. It was a total privilege to hear from Jan, as well as celebrate the accomplishments of Jason and Omar. We look forward to the next IWCA conference and to be able to see all the innovation developing throughout the window cleaning industry.
