We’re Moving

2010/11/24

For the past 3 months, I haven’t been doing my job. Okay, I’ve haven’t been doing “my job” 100% rather I’ve been devoting much of my time to the move! It’s more like a journey than just an office move. The RSPA staff has worked really hard to attain our new address. I won’t bore you with the mundane details related to the history of what got us to this point – the bottom line is this – we cleaned out a 25,000 square foot building to fit into a 5,000 square foot office space. It sounds awful but it’s been pretty exciting. Going through old pictures and documents when the association first evolved, reading old ‘Data Links’ and laughing at how far we’ve come, finding old hardware pieces from PC4 days wondering ‘What the @#*% is this?’, my particular favorite – getting rid of the mauve chairs that plagued our old building – this journey has been a cleansing not only for our staff but for the association.

We sold our building a couple months ago and have been renting from the new owners until our space was ready. The new owners, Neutrik, have been wonderful to share space with. To keep their business moving along, they needed to do some renovations to our building – that meant us RSPA-er’s got to see what’s been lurking behind ceiling tiles all these years – let’s just say there were some random screams and screeches over the past 30 days as we discovered some uninvited critters. Nevertheless, we took it like troopers and carried on packing, recycling, shredding, and dumping to prepare for moving day.

Moving day has finally arrived and I personally couldn’t be more happy. After hours upon hours of trying to pick out paint colors, sifting through carpet samples, testing out new office chairs, ensuring the electrical outlets were in the right spot, meeting with moving companies, consulting with furniture vendors — I am ready to get back to doing “my job” 100%! Although it may have taken me an extra day to reply to emails for my “regular job” – this move has been a welcomed and necessary distraction as it is going to make our association and staff that much better. I am so excited about our new digs and cannot wait until we have some visitors to show off our new home away from home.

Be sure to note our address change:

10130 Perimeter Parkway, Suite 420 Charlotte, NC 28216
