Gary conference 2014

We have been working hard on the Accreditation Program. I have also been traveling around the country speaking on the topic. I know you have many questions; I know I am still am trying to get my tongue around the word “accreditation”! You will find the answers to many of your frequently asked questions in our July newsletter. If you need more information, drop me a line or attend the workshop I am holding at METALCON.

Speaking of METALCON, once again we are able to offer our members free admission to this event. Click on the link below to register.

I am thrilled to announce two new Chapters: Southeast Texas and the Rocky Mountain Region:

Tony Fuentes of Premier Steel Buildings, Ltd., Steve Olson and Duke Santillian, of Rigid Global Buildings have organized the Texas Southeast Chapter. They have planned a jam-packed day that will focus on the needs of the workers in the morning and owners in the afternoon. I will be offering your workers a two hour training session and  will certify all participants in Fall Hazards Safety, Hot work Safety, Torch Cutting Safety and Global Harmonized System (old MSDS). After lunch, we will present the benefits of MBCEA membership and plans for the future to the employers.

Similarly, the Rocky Mountain Region Chapter will hold its kick-off at METALCON, in Denver, CO. Michael Cain, Big Johnson Construction in Fort Morgan, CO, Harvey Freeman, Pro Steel, Inc. in Black Forest, CO and Mike Reynolds, Systems Contractors, Inc. and Systems Builders, Inc. in Thornton, CO have organized the kick-off. Any MBCEA member that will be attending METALCON is welcome to attend. This is a perfect forum to check us out if you are not yet a member.

Have an idea you want to share, please drop me a line. Don’t forget, next years Conference is in San Diego, April 30-May 2. Hope to see you there!


Gary T. Smith
President, MBCEA
