New Leadership Opportunities for the NC Chimney Sweep Association

Greetings Fellow Sweeps

This is Charlie Quaile of Chimneys Plus in Pittsboro.  I am one of the six NCCSA  board members.  I am announcing opportunities to serve on the NCCSA Board of Directors.  Several of us are rotating off the board making room for new members to step forward to help lead future education programs for regional sweeps that will help build skills and professionalism.

Our association has a fruitful history as an industry leader in educational seminars.   

Learn more at our next meeting in January. 

It promises to be rich in CEU's with lots of mingling with other regional sweeps.  I personally owe much to this organization and the many who served on the board and the many who have attended the meetings over my last 30 years.  I will still be attending of course.

Perhaps you or one of your team members would like to develop leadership skills through this opportunity.  

We will have a membership meeting on Friday evening after dinner (1-25-19) discuss the board members who would like to serve and the officers open positions for voting.  Please consider serving for a 1 year term on the board.

We would like to introduce our guest speaker!

Growing up as the son of a chimney sweep, David Kline was exposed to the innovations and changes in the industry as they happened.

His Dad, Bill Kline developed innovative methods of servicing chimneys long before they become mainstream. David worked with his dad off and on through his school years.

In the late ’80’s, chimney sweeping didn’t really seem to be a job worth aspiring to. David went to college and earned Bachelor of Science and Master of Arts degrees in Cinema and Video Production from Bob Jones University. He worked various video production and computer related jobs until the economy shifted shortly after the new millennium began. Nobody was hiring video production personnel, so David went to work helping his dad.

It turns out that the logic, organizational, and troubleshooting skills that are necessary for filmmaking transition nicely to inspecting and renovating chimney systems. David attended the CSIA’s National Chimney Sweep Training School in 2003 and became a CSIA Certified Chimney Sweep.

Since then he has attended masonry schools with Chris Prior, earned NFI Certification in Gas and Wood, earned CDET Certification, attended every NCSG Convention and been a regular at Sweep’s Week. His passion is building fantastic fireplaces and renovating typical fireplaces to be fantastic. Apparently he knows enough to now be useful to others.

In 2015, David officially became the owner of Chim Cheree, The Chimney Specialists as his parents retired. Now he has to learn how to run a business.
