Why Join?

As commercial painting business owners and entrepreneurs, we need to be innovative, passionate and resourceful. We understand that in business there are successes and failures. Our board of advisors and founders have had long and successful careers in the commercial painting industry. The CPIA was created to help these business owners learn from non-competing industry leaders who are actually DOING IT! Leaders like you who are in the game. Not from talking heads who have never actually built a successful commercial painting company.

The CPIA is about connecting DOERS not talkers!

Our goal is to be your Partner in Progress. In the spirit of true masterminds, we are looking for people willing to provide value to the group by openly sharing honest results directly connected to their businesses. We are about sharing, collaborating, and having an abundance mindset.

Simply put, we want people that want to give more than they get. Confidential and trusting relationships; think of your CPIA peers as your own personal board of directors. CPIA connects members in a “safe haven” environment of trust and confidentiality so they can learn from and grow together.
