Los Angeles Rug Society can be a fine forum for Persian, Oriental and area rug dealers who do business in Los Angeles and its neighboring cities. It can be educational, cultural, fun and a networking place where experts in the Oriental carpet world can mingle and exchange useful information and ideas. It is one of my plans to establish such an organization in Los Angeles. I should consult with few of my colleagues to see how we can materialize this 2008 resolution. We need a board of directors and after a few meetings, we should start getting members. We can have informal gatherings, lectures, exhibitions, talks, and more. I know that some people may not like the idea, but I am sure if well planned and good implemented, this can bring business as well as education and fun to its members and even non-members who will participate in the events. It is going to be a win-win for all of us, the rug dealers in LA. I will work on this idea and will write more about it. Other smaller cities have rug societies, why not have a good one in Los Angeles. we can surely use the experiences of our colleagues in other cities and states.
