A lthough that idea has some holes in it, I think there is a lot of stock in networking to boost personal growth. Social media platforms are extremely popular methods these days. Of course, there's LinkedIn, which is mainly geared toward profes- sional development, but I've also used Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for story leads, which is my main networking goal at CoatingsPro. And then there's in-person networking. For the magazine, attending trade shows and jobsites helps us make connec- tions for future projects, experts, and events to feature. As a contractor, networking may help you hear about new projects, gain new employees, or even learn about products, techniques, and services. But not everyone has the time or money to network online or in person. And so, to some extent, I believe that CoatingsPro can help that person "network " in print. Bringing the Network to You In each issue, we give you access to your contemporaries with similar challenges through the feature stories; experts about specifc subjects; insight into the state of the industry past, present, and future; manufacturer, services, train- ing, and staf updates; and much more. And this March 2016 issue is no diferent. We're hoping that this spring issue will help you gain some lessons, information, and insights that you can use to do your job better and more efciently. In this issue, we're casting a wide net for you in a variety of ways. Our goal is to make you feel like you are on the jobsite with the contractor being featured. I imagine that it would be as if you were meeting the project lead in person and asking about the project. In this issue, you may want to check out the USS Boxer recoating to get a few tips on how to overcome some common challenges regarding anti-skid materi- als. Tat article can be found on page 50. Another story in this issue features the New York-New York Hotel & Casino. Wouldn't you like to talk to the contrac- tors on that job who used polyurea coatings on that water feature? We brought that contact to you on page 42. Looking for some insight into how to avoid losing tools during the job? You may be able to get some tips in A lison Falco's "Money Matters" on page 22. It's all a matter of how you approach the subjects, but we're hoping that we can bring the network to you! Spring Introductions W hether you network with CoatingsPro in print, in person, or online, you are our main goal in putting together each and every issue. If you gain one new kernel of information in each issue, then we'll consider that a success. How will you defne yours?
