The 2016 Terry Award was presented to Bill Ross, Fiberon. Bill was unable to make it this year, but James Gunning was present to accept the award on his behalf. “ find it somewhat ironic that the one year (since the inception of DeckEXPO) that I was not able to come to the show or the NADRA Big Event, that this is the year I get the much respected Terry Award. If I was a little paranoid I might wonder if it’s a payment for not showing up…, but I am not paranoid. I am honored and humbled and joy-filled. As I said, I don’t wonder if it was a payoff, and if I didn’t wonder about that, I certainly don’t wonder whether or not it was time well invested. My association with the NADRA has been a fantastic growth experience, working not just for the company, Fiberon, in which I earn my living, but for the greater industry in which I thrive and gain great satisfaction. It has been a lot of hard work at times and a whole lot of fun almost all the time. One thing that would make it all much better was if my peers stepped up to fill board leadership roles. The industry needs you! Your time, talent and a little bit of your treasure. My guess is, that you will get more than you give and have a great time making things better! Thanks again to all members. Wishing you continued success. Bill Ross, Fiberon
