October 2021

Phil Steinhauer, Designscapes Colorado

As I write this letter and reflect on the past summer, since today is the first day of fall, I am proud of all the work our industry has done in keeping their teams safe and adapting their businesses to these unusual circumstances. Although the last couple of years have been challenging, I am very excited about all the work our board has done. I am optimistic that the ideas and programs we have discussed will have a positive impact on our industry and your businesses.

After having our fall forum last year via Zoom, we will have it in person this year. At this event we strategically plan the upcoming year and identify future leaders within our industry. This has typically been a weekend conference, but we have reimagined it into a one-day event where we can inspire the team with great speakers and lots of great ideas and dialogue.

I look forward to working with you, our members to achieve the goals we set. Our organization is built on the belief that we are stronger together, and that our collective voice and efforts can do far more than we can individually. This message is especially important as we try to grow our membership, lobby for H2B reform and deal with the looming drought.

As we move into fall, hopefully you can catch your breath and take advantage of some of the programs ALCC has coming up. Please go to the ALCC website and register your teams for the upcoming Irrigation Bootcamp, SLM Training and the seminar on Pricing and Estimating in Inflationary Times.

Hope you all have a fantastic fall.

Sincerely,

Phil Steinhauer
