In a recent interview, Lawn & Landscape business magazine checked in with Dave White, TCIA’s president and CEO, regarding his first few months with the organization.

White joined TCIA in March of this year, and is working with the Board of Directors to follow the association’s strategic plan and make workforce development the organization’s top priority.

“I think the most important thing is the ability to develop and implement a strategic plan that focuses on delivering value to our members,” White says. “That requires listening to members, identifying their pain points and determining how best the association can assist its members in overcoming those obstacles.”
