Today, the Floor Covering Education Foundation (FCEF), a
nonprofit organization dedicated to the recruitment, scholarship, and placement of professional
floorcovering installers, announced changes to its Board and leadership team. At the
organization’s February 18th board meeting Don Roberts was appointed as Board Chair, Piet
Dossche was added to its Board of Directors, and they welcomed Jim Aaron as its Executive
Director.
Aaron was selected after a diligent and thorough search that included numerous highly
qualified professionals from across the nation. He comes to FCEF after serving as the Vice
President of Merchandising for Carpet One Floor & Home and will succeed Interim Director
Steve Abernathy, who will serve on the Board and as Chairman of the Scholarship Committee.
Roberts, who joined the FCEF Board in 2019, succeeds Scott Humphrey, President and CEO
of the World Floor Covering Association (WFCA). Humphrey served as Chairman since the
inception of the organization in 2019 and will remain on the board. The appointment of Piet
Dossche brings the total number of Board members to fifteen. The FCEF board of directors is
comprised of industry professionals representing a broad spectrum of interests in the
floorcovering industry. The full list of current board members can be found here and committee

permanent solution to solve the installation crisis. Together, we have an exciting journey
ahead.”
