In The Beginning

Art-1iwMy name is Art Rouse. I have been employed by Binswanger Glass for 39+ years. I have worked as a sales representative, office/operations manager, branch manager and now as the area administrative manager. I have been involved in all aspects of subcontracting, from estimating to project management. My current job is to assist Binswanger locations in North Carolina and western Virginia with the administrative side of subcontracting and requires that I stay current with legal issues that affect subcontractors.

I will be blogging for the North Carolina Subcontractors Alliance. This is the former Charlotte Chapter of the American Subcontractors Association of the Carolinas. In a special meeting of the membership in June 2013, a majority of the membership voted to disassociate itself from ASAC and focus on legislation and construction issues at the state and local level.

The plan is to link this blog to the NCSA website and online newsletter. Since the organization will be using the WordPress templates for the website and newsletter, I have been asked to do my blogging on WordPress as well. My original posts were done on my personal blog on BlogSpot, so my next few postings will be re-posts from BlogSpot.

I hope you find these posts helpful and relevant. I will try to keep them interesting and timely. Comments are always appreciated.
