                                            we wouldn’t go through with it because the industry was

                                               Remember the story of the Stone Soup? Even in the toughest times, we all have
                                            resources to share and contribute to the common good for a community to thrive and
                                            succeed. That’s how NWSID will be thinking for its membership in the coming year.

                                              How do we make this mission work?
                                                •	   We think about being part of a team focused on a larger goal for our whole
                                                     design community.
                                                •	   We share resources so everyone wins as everyone’s needs are met.
                                                •	   We develop the skills to do the job and be supportive of those in need.
                                               We learned that as we let go of fear, self-focus, treachery, and hoarding and begin to
                                            practice the acts of openness, sharing and support, we can help our community survive,
                                            our businesses thrive, and gain ample resources and profits. Through the interactive
                                            “game” of Andy Black’s, we all learned in one “ah- ha” moment that this is what
          ADvERTISERS                       collaboration acts like.

                                               As NWSID members we have prided ourselves on our networking, our support of one

                                            another, continuing education for success, and our mentoring of colleagues. We have
    California Closets                 4    known how to do “support” for a long time. Now it is time to advance to “collaboration,”
    ColorSplashes                      7    to learn to work together to help each other achieve success for our businesses. Those
                                            who attended the conference learned this, got it, and are getting together with their
    Landfair Furniture + Design Gallery 7
                                            conference colleagues to make it work. We have also taken this message back to the
    NW Rugs                            5    NWSID “hive” to spread the word to those who were unable to attend the event, but still
                                            need to know what we now “get.”

                                               So, listen for the buzz. We’re going to keep it strong all year long while we prepare for
                                            our next conference. Look to the newsletter for monthly information and updates. Get on

                     Purple Passion at ProSource
 NWSID members were welcomed to ProSource in Tigard for our July 9th
 general meeting by cheerful purple pansies at the door and throughout
 the showroom. Members mingled with representatives from Standard
 TV & Appliance, Dacor, A-Tech Granite & Marble, Installers 3M, Dovetail
 Cabinets & Design, Caesar Stone, Emser Tile and Porcelanosa USA while
 they enjoyed the fabulous buffet by Dalton’s Northwest Catering.

 Michael Gordon, Regional Sales Vice President for Porcelanosa USA,
 presented a 10-minute DVD overview of the company and its product
 lines. He showed off some of Porcelanosa’s new products and best sellers                 Michael Gordon
 including Glass Acido, Cubica and Legno ceramic parquet. All products are               Porcelanosa USA
 stocked in the U.S. and require just two weeks lead time.

 Joel Fahndrich, Sales Representative, spoke to us about Emser Tile’s
 largest product display at ProSource in Tigard and the company’s Portland
 branch on NW Yeon. Joel noted that Emser Tile is pushing the envelope on
 green products and showed off Lindos, a product made of 40% recycled
 content. Designers can check with Suzanne Parker at ProSource for a list
 of LEED-certified products from Emser Tile.

 This month, there are a couple of follow up notes to our meeting:
 Suzanne Parker wants to let NWSID members know that when they buy
 from ProSource, they will receive special discounted pricing. In addition,
 she clarified that membership is free, dispelling rumors that there is a
 $100 fee to join.                                                                         Joel Fahndrich

 Michael Zivanich of Dacor wants us to know about Dacor University, a
 valuable, online training resource designed to help you increase your
 knowledge of Dacor luxury appliances while increasing your sales. To learn
 more, go to Dacor.com and click the “Trade Professional” link or call
