Chuck Violand, founder and president of Violand Management Associates and 2016-2017 RIA president, spent a little time chatting with R&R editor Michelle Blevins back in 2016, just after becoming RIA president, about the future of the restoration industry, and more specifically his visions for the Restoration Industry Association in the coming years.

During the 2016 International Restoration Convention and Industry Expo, Chuck was named the new president of the RIA. With his extensive background in the restoration industry, he brought wisdom, knowledge, and forward thinking to his two years of leadership in the association. 

Watch this video from 2016 when Chuck shared his visions for the RIA, the restoration industry as a whole, and his advice for restoration companies wanting to get to the next level.
