Mike ReynoldsMessage from the President

The MBCEA is all about teamwork and man do we have a great team! The MBCEA Board and Chapter Presidents are organized into committees and are tackling several major projects/initiatives:


The Conference Committee has put together a stellar program. If you have not registered yet, do it now, you do not want to miss out. Quick registration link: 47th Annual MBCEA Conference.


The IMP Committee is developing a new training video for our Quality and Craftsmanship Training Series.  This dedicated group includes Gary Smith, Andy Lee, Art Hance, Keith Wentworth, Arnold Corbin, Wes Young, Travis Welch, Jackie Meiluta and me. We are crafting the script and storyboard and making progress. Stay tuned for more information.


The AC478 Technical Committee remains active and committed to the success of this initiative. We are working with Metal Construction News to create a webinar for companies interested in learning more. Details will follow in next month's newsletter. Also, Jackie Meiluta and/or Gary Smith are willing to come to your location to help you prepare for your application. Do take advantage of this valuable day of free consultancy. Contact Jackie to schedule. 


Chapter Development is going strong. Thanks to Butler Manufacturing and all the members of the new San Joaquin Valley Chapter for a great kick-off in February.  This group is off to a great start. The OHIO Region Chapter kicks-off in April and the Pacific NW Chapter  in May. I can not emphasize enough what a difference a Chapter makes. Chapters are great opportunities to take your membership to the next level, to access free or subsidized training, and to network.

We also have a team working on guidelines for Temporary Bracing, another team planning Conference 2017 which will be co-located with the MBMA, and last but not least, a team planning our participation and educational tracks for METALCON. If there is something else you want us to prioritize, speak up. I want to hear from you.
