In this special episode of “If Walls Could Talk,” W&C Group Publisher chats with Jason Gordon, owner of Heartland Acoustics & Interiors—as well as W&C editorial advisory member—and Eric Boos, vice president of E&K of Omaha. Both have or will have the privilege of serving on CISCA’s board and will be taking over as association president from Gordon for this next term. 

The two have an exciting conversation about the various roles each play within the association and what is happening with CISCA. 

“It’s been a quick year, my term ends in July. We launched the CISCA Cares Program, and we launched a Women in Construction group,” said Gordon. “Our Contractor Challenge, which was started last year, will bring tradesmen in to build ceilings and walls in person at events.” 

“Following Jason [as term president] will be a struggle,” Boos joked. “CISCA will celebrate 75 years [in 2025]. Our Emerging Leaders program is very exciting as well. There is a lot going on.”   

Why did you first get involved in CISCA? “After a few years of being in business, I heard about the association,” said Gordon. From there, I got involved and began attending the events. And then someone pulled me aside and told me to get more involved. And it was like magic. It’s what I would tell anyone who’s thinking of getting involved: See what it’s about and then if you’re interested, get involved. 

In 2015, Boos got involved with the association, which he calls “impactful.” It’s obvious that networking and meeting others in the industry, both have benefited.
