Message from the President

Wow 2019 has been off to a great start!!  It all kicked off in January with an update on tax reform presented by CLA.  In April we had a jobsite tour of Kraus-Anderson’s fully completed building.  Then in May we had a joint event with MSA on technology and a new member event at TopGolf.  To top it all off in June we had a happy hour at the national conference in Las Vegas and our annual sporting clays tournament at the Horse & Hunt! 

With all of that fun and education we are also proud to remind all of our members that we are now accepting applications for this year’s Concurrent Scholarship program.  Applications can be found online through the link and are due no later than August 14th. This a great opportunity for interns of general members so don’t miss out.

The second half of 2019 should be equally as exciting and education packed! Our theme of technology in the construction industry will carry us through the year.  We will provide numerous opportunities to expand your professional knowledge and build relationships with some of the construction industry’s most passionate and talented professionals.  

An annual highlight is coming up this fall as well, CFMA day (Oct. 21st).  Mark your calendars and I know everyone is always excited to hear that Anirban Basu is coming to give his economic update. The day will include numerous breakout sessions this year with CPE provided education credits. So, come ready to learn.

I look forward to seeing you at the upcoming events!
