    Students Comments:

    • "Very Informative ... I would definitely attend more classes, there were many tricks... I will take home to the guys."
    • "Overall great class.  I hope I get the first opportunity to attend the next level. I'm happy with what I'm taking away from the 3 day course"

    Teachers and Students Agree ...pleased with the curriculum as developed but students will benefit from more hands-on that will be worked into future presentations.

    This workshop promises to be one of, if not the largest, most well-attended workshop the SMA has organized.  Loudoun Stair is a very diverse stair company and centrally located to the largest concentration of our membership.  With Airport Shuttle provided by the hotel and Bus transportation from the hotel to the shop included this will be economical to attend as well.  Sorry but attendance is capped so be warned and don't miss this one... REGISTER EARLY!
