On April 11, the STA held our highest attended and most successful Construction Awards Dinner in our associations 53-year history. I am full of gratitude for all of those who supported this major fundraiser by placing an ad or by attending the dinner itself.
As many of you who attended the dinner are aware, for the first time this year we honored 20 industry professionals under the age of 39 with our “Emerging Young Professionals” award. We will continue this honoree category next year. I encourage all STA members to let the young professionals in their companies know about this group. You can have them email Sam at the STA office to get involved, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Before we enter summer, the STA will be holding one last big event: our annual membership meeting. This annual meeting is where our Officers and Board of Directors for the coming year will be nominated. This meeting will also feature a panel presentation on contract clauses and the unveiling our newest white paper on that issue. This will be an incredibly informative presentation that all subcontractors in the STA won’t want to miss. It will be held on Tuesday, June 4, from 5:30pm-8:00pm at Manhattan Manor (formerly Manhattan Club), 201 West 52nd Street, New York, NY 10019. Registration will open in the next week for this event, so please look out for those emails.
