John Hinson, division president of the Dallas office of Marek, will be president of the Association of the Wall and Ceiling Industry (AWCI) effective July 1, 2015, to June 30, 2016.
As AWCI president, Hinson presides over meetings of the AWCI board of directors and the AWCI executive committee as chairman. As president, he appoints all members to committees, oversees member programs and services of the association and develops and supports internal and external AWCI policy, as he did at the April 2015 board meeting when AWCI's board officially adopted a policy on immigration reform. Working with AWCI’s executive vice president and other senior staff, he provides guidance to achieve the association’s mission of helping its members run more successful businesses.
During his term, Hinson will represent AWCI at various industry events throughout North America and abroad. He will attend annual conventions and meetings of AWCI chapters in addition to other wall and ceiling industry events. At these events, Hinson will speak on the association’s behalf providing attendees with a “State of AWCI” address and/or a general overview of current industry trends and issues.
