Letter From President - Rob Paradise

Dear LSLA Membership,

Adapting to Changes

I would have to believe most people’s forecasts and projections for 2020 have been put through the paper shredder or wound up into a wad lying next to the trash can at a failed attempt to make a basketball shot. It has not been the year anyone anticipated but hopefully everyone has been able to adapt to the changes we have been dealt with.

In late March when our state’s Governors started announcing mass changes to society from school closures, to business restrictions and social changes it left everyone with a lot of unknown territory ahead. While our society still sees a lot of social restriction and cancellations with some aspects of business facing limitations, it seems most of our industry is now back up and going with most at full speed. However, being able to run at full speed has come with a lot of changes. Changes in work structure distancing co-workers and providing extra ppe, limited office visits and breakroom rules have changed all our workplaces. After a few up and down months it seems that most have settled into the new way of operating and in recent conversations I have had a lot of companies report being quite busy in June, July or both with optimistic starts in August. Let’s hope our industry can have a strong finish to 2020.

As summer is winding down, I hope everyone has been able to remain healthy, prosperous and was able to enjoy the wonderful weather we have had this summer and are looking forward to the wonderful activities the great outdoors offers in the fall.
