SGF, Supreme Grumble Framer
I started this because it didn't seem to fit elsewhere. I don't think anyone should join FramerSelect at this time with the thought they will have people running through their doors. I am looking at it as a way to unify the good framers, draw attention to them, and eventually weed out some bad framers. In my opinion, the qualifications set for joining FramerSelect do not go far enough in weeding out the bad framers. I consider myself an above-average framer, and it bothers me to be lumped in with the average ones, to possibly below average ones. I know FS is adding field representatives to aid in this problem. But I would like to see criteria set for possibly having a standard memberhip, and maybe a "gold" mebership for dealers who have above average qualifications. Some qualifcations could be- PPFA membership, CPF certfication, attending at least one trade show per year, attendance of seminars and workshops, participation in trade competitions (ie. Wizard, PPFA, etc.). This may enourage others to do things for their businss they never did before in able to become a "gold" member. Just a thought.
