Chapter News

New England Chapter News

I hope the holiday season finds everyone well. It’s been my pleasure to serve as the New England Chapter President for these last 2 years. I like to think that we continued to push the bar forward, as our predecessors have done, and continued to deliver training and metal building education to our members. We also have a new Scholarship Fund as another way to give back to those who make the MBCEA what it has been the last 50 years. I look forward to continue working with the board, and welcome Anthony Poliatti as our new Chapter President as of Jan 1, 2019.

Adam Drummond conducted a First-Aid training to our members on 11/15/18 at the Holiday Inn in Marlboro, MA. The event was well attended, and Adam conducted an excellent training session. Very specials thanks to our event sponsor – Silvercote.

Happy Holidays and best wishes to everyone on a successful 2019  -Tony Barnes
