Calgary, Alberta (April 1, 2014) – Paul Klassen, the founder and general manager of Pinnacle Group—one of the leading renovation companies in Calgary—will attend a peer-group roundtable in Chicago on April 25 that seeks to further the professional development of its participants. The program is a continent-wide initiative of Victoria Downing, the president of Remodelers Advantage Inc., an international support organization for renovators in Canada and the United States.

The bi-annual roundtable is led by skilled facilitators and will serve as a venue where participants can discuss the important issues their businesses face. The program also provides continued support to members, teaches best practices and tools, and gives members the opportunity to network with peers.

Klassen takes advantage of these professional development opportunities in accordance with the guidelines given by RenoMark™ and the Canadian Home Builders’ Association (CHBA), two organizations he is a member of. The former, which is a network of trusted renovation companies, mandates its members to: “Have access to information, education, training and professional development through membership in the Association.”

The CHBA, on the other hand, requires that: “Members shall exchange information and experience, and encourage research on materials, technical advancements and building techniques in order to provide the best value for their customers.”

Klassen is a founding member of RenoMark™, and has served as a council member and chairman of the group. Of the estimated 2,000 renovators in Calgary, Pinnacle Group is one of the 67 who are members of RenoMark™. The company is also a member in good standing with the CHBA, observing strict adherence to its code of conduct. Paul is dedicated to being a lifelong learner and continues to invest in professional development opportunities both for him and his staff members that will further enhance his service offerings to his clients.
