Mid-Atlantic Division Mission Statement

Our Mission is to support the professional advancement of metal building contractors and erectors and the industry within the Mid-Atlantic region by developing and providing educational programs & scholarship opportunities, recognizing excellence, emphasizing safety and good business practices, offering networking opportunities, and implementing strategies to retain and grow membership.  In carrying out our mission we seek to further the goals and mission of the MBCEA, nationally.




Welcome to the Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the Metal Building Contractors & Erectors Association.  We are excited to have your company as part of this fantastic organization and are optimistic that you will find this organization to be a valuable tool for your business.

The Mid-Atlantic Chapter started under the umbrella of the national MBCEA in 2006 and has continued to grow since.  A Board that started with 6 members has grown to 13.  After starting with a $500 donation from the MBCEA of New England, our chapter now rests on a significant financial foundation that permits it to offer much of its training at a significantly reduced rate.  Our members are proud of what has been accomplished; and they should be proud.

Like the national MBCEA, the Mid-Atlantic Chapter sets training, education, and awareness as its top priorities.  Each year, concrete steps are taken by the Chapter to make sure its members and their employees are providing the highest quality work in the business and working safer than anyone.  Towards that end, our chapter has provided a vast array of subsidized training for its members. 

Some of our past offerings have included:
  • OSHA 30 Hour Certification
  • Rigging
  • Crane Signaling
  • Team Building
  • Blueprint Reading
  • Insulation Installation Training
  • Fall Protection
  • MBCEA Erector Certification
  • Tele-Handler and Man Lift Certification
  • First Aid/CPR

Our educational efforts don’t stop there either.  The chapter initiated a scholarship program in 2014 to offer educational opportunities to both those working in the industry and those who would like to do so.  Significant efforts have been undertaken, with the help of the Metal Buildings Institute, to promote metal buildings to the design community through the development of AIA CES programs. In addition, our chapter, through the sound leadership of one of its founding members and past presidents, Gary Smith, has also developed the only federally recognized apprenticeship program for Pre-Engineered Building Assemblers in the entire country.

In addition, we provide opportunities for members to network and develop relationships in the industry.  By hosting our annual golf outing, holiday socials, and various other events, we are able to provide members an opportunity to meet with other members, develop business opportunities, and have some fun too.

Above all else, our chapter is strong and vibrant because of the people involved.  I often “sell” this organization by telling people that the strength of the Mid-Atlantic MBCEA – and the national organization – is its people.  They are not just good at what they do.  They are good people.  Because relationships with good people are what makes each of us better and helps our businesses flourish, this organization provides wonderful opportunities.

I strongly encourage you to get involved in our association.  Those who choose to do so get the most benefit out of their membership.  Our chapter is always looking for new ideas and energy from people willing to contribute, so get involved.  I have attached a list of the Executive Committee and the Board of Directors.  Feel free to call any one of them to inquire about opportunities to become active.  I have also enclosed a gift certificate for training, a copy of our chapter’s bylaws, and some other information you might find useful.  More information can be obtained from our website www.mbcea.org/mid-atlantic, so be sure to check back there often.

Thank you again for choosing to join the Mid Atlantic Chapter of the Metal Building Contractors & Erectors Association.  I look forward to seeing you at an upcoming meeting.

Our 15th annual Holiday Social was held on Friday, December 2, 2022, in Peddler's Village, Lahaska, PA. With 55 in attendance we thoroughly enjoyed the good food and company, visiting with old friends and making new. The highlight was the awarding of two scholarships.  

The first was Tyler Freyman with ATAS International. He started out as a forklift and overhead crane operator for three years and has been in the position of inside technical sales for the last two years. He’s looking to obtain Construction Document Technologist, Certified Construction Product Representative, and CAD and Drafting classes from LCCC. Congratulations Tyler on the $1,500 scholarship.
The second recipient was Dillon Krupa, a full time metal building assembler with Thomas Phoenix Intl. He graduated high school in 2021 with honors and is currently enrolled full time at Rowan College studying Construction Management. His goal is to become a Construct Manager. Congratulations Dillon on the $2,000 scholarship.
Special thank you to ATAS International, Butler Mfg., Dominion Construction Group, Tell Manufacturing and Therm-All for sponsoring this event!
