On January 26-28, the Missouri Land Improvement Contractors Association held it’s 76th Annual Winter Convention at the Hilton Garden Inn in Columbia, MO. The theme for the Convention was “Solving the Puzzle of Success,” with classes tailored to help contractors work smarter, not harder. In addition to classes on QuickBooks, Employment Law, Workers’ Compensation Law, and Missouri One Call’s NextGen software, contractors were updated on their benefit package and plans for the 2017 Field Day. The Convention wrapped up on Saturday night with a fun trivia game. The Ladies Auxiliary created some wonderful “Make and Take” bathroom sets and, as a surprise addition, held an impromptu LICA Hair Salon! All in all, it was a wonderful weekend, full of learning and laughter.
