PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Joe Leo
President
Subcontractors Trade Association
Atlantic Contracting & Specialties

Dear readers,

I am pleased to announce that the 2020 STA Annual Construction Awards Celebration was a success! When the STA Board of Directors had to reimagine the usual dinner to be a virtual celebration, the idea was welcomed with open arms by all of our supporters. The association was shown great support by all of our industry friends: from general contractors, to other contractor associations, and of course our own constituents and association members.

I would also like to thank our honorees for all of their support and advertising of the event, as well as being enthusiastic about “going virtual.” While it is impossible to recreate the energy of a ballroom full of people, our honorees and their award presenters did a fantastic job with their Zoom speeches. Everyone watching could feel each honoree’s passion for New York City construction, and it was clear that we all have a desire to work together to move our industry forward in positive ways. Our Awards Celebration video will be a keepsake for years to come, and certainly a relic of this interesting time in our lives.

As we head into the end of November, I would like to wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving holiday.  As uncertainty ramps up again, I would like all STA members to remember that the association and the Board of Directors is here to assist with any issue that may arise as a result of the pandemic.

Very Best,

Joe Leo
