  1. Cleaning for Heroes

    The PWNC is also very pleased to promote Cleaning for Heroes - we will identify each of our Network Associates who are providers with a Cleaning for Heroes icon and also will be putting a press release on the home page of the site mid-month :) This is a great hand-in-hand activity with our Honoring our Fallen Heroes project. Thank you Torrey for the amazing work that you have done with this!
  2. The PWNC is pleased to announce our two newest participants - Jake Clark of Armstrong-Clark Company and Byron Briney of Ambassador Window Cleaning! Welcome Aboard! Take a look at this network for professional pressure washing companies in North & South Carolina today - we're here to help YOUR business!
  3. Water restrictions in place

    Thank you for looking out Marko - we're ready to help anytime!
  4. Wow - this is coming up fast and we are building quite a weekend it seems :) Some changes on the date: FRIDAY, May 14 will be the day that the PWNC will meet for our "think tank". There are many many ideas and plans that need to be discussed and implemented! Bring your goals and suggestions. We won't start until about 1:00 on Friday to allow travel on Friday morning rather than after a work day. NC / SC contractors - or even northern GA & southern VA contractors who are seriously considering applying to participate should seriously consider attending this focus group as well. These are the meetings that make this network so valuable! Pre-registration is going to be required and attendance for Friday will be limited so check with me soon! SATURDAY, May 15 will be open to all - space will be limited to 75 contractors (not companies or couples) - bodies. Our sponsor line-up, through the impressive work of NCE, is growing nicely. Some new topics we are exploring for Saturday are QuickBooks, Constant Contact, & Social Networking - all ways to help obtain, retain & manage your customers. There is going to be a special break-out session for the WIVES to discuss our roles & responsibilities with our respective companies. This is a long overdue means of support for the women behind the companies. It will be quite the opportunity for us the share and compare practices in the hopes of restructuring, streamlining or even starting up the administrative end. (As a note to this session, if you (the woman behind the company) know that you will be attending on May 15, please contact me as soon as you are sure - I would like to gather as much information pre-show as possible [336-270-4598] ) Stay tuned all next week for more details. I will post them here, obviously they will be on the National Cleaning Expo site, the next edition of the NCE News publication, and ***. If you are not signed up on the PWNC website for our newsletter - Power Washers Network of the Carolinas | PWNC | NC | SC | Pressure&Power Washing Companies - it's free to get the newsletter. Looking forward to seeing many of you in Charlotte next month!
