Since 1952, the Texas Lathing and Plastering Contractors Association (TLPCA) has provided an essential resource for the promotion of quality methods and practices in the lathing and plastering trades and the walls and ceiling industry. For seventy years, our organization has helped to establish workmanship standards for the entire wall & ceiling industry all across the state of Texas, including industries such as drywall, stucco, veneer stone, fireproofing, and beyond. Our Association and Board have helped promote and advance the industry to ensure the type of quality work and durable design the public requires and deserves.
We’d like to introduce you to our amazing Association and board members, who not only contribute and lead within our association but within our industry.
