Our Purpose

The Commercial Painting Industry Association (CPIA) is a Peer Group driven trade association focused on bringing together elite business owners and their key team members on a regular basis to share, connect, and grow as both individuals and leaders.
This is the greatest benefit of CPIA membership. Peer Groups foster sharing between members in an open, respectful and confidential environment. CPIA offers Peer Groups for Owners and Key Roles within your organization like Sales and Operations.
Contractor Leadership Webinars give members of the CPIA the opportunity to focus on their businesses by connecting with experts in various fields from around the world. Topics from Painting to Entrepreneurship, Legal to Leadership will be discussed.
Our members represent the best and brightest in the commercial painting industry. This is where CPIA members have the opportunity to showcase their expertise to help fellow contractors while earning global recognition as an industry expert.
Our events allow CPIA members to connect with one another through education and shared experiences. Not only will you learn a lot you can bring back to your business, it’s our goal to send you home with relationships and tools for LIFE!

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.

  • CPIA started out as a monthly call to discuss business, but it has quickly turned into so much more. My peers have become my confidants and people I turn to when making decisions. Through this group of individuals I have gained knowledge, grown as a person, and become part of a family.

  • The CPIA has been instrumental to keep us on course for reaching our goals during these troubling times. I find it to be a sort of brotherhood of like-minded high achievers that want to better themselves and their organizations. I can’t think of time better spent for those businesses that not only want to survive Covid but actually thrive now and for many years into the future. To be your best, I suggest you align yourself with the CPIA. Winners win.
