I hope you all had an enjoyable (and relaxing) summer; now it’s time to gear up for another busy fall and winter with the STA! I sincerely hope you will join us for our exciting slate of upcoming events.
For our next General Membership Meeting, which will take place on October 16th, we will be featuring our highly sought after Speed Meetings with General Contractors. This “Let’s Do Business!” event is a great way to network, discover upcoming project opportunities, and make lasting connections with other professionals in our industry.

A few more items to put on the calendar:
- STA Young Professionals Salary Negotiation Best Practices Seminar
This education session will take place at the STA office later this fall. Besides valuable learning opportunities, this event will also offer a unique chance to meet other young professionals within STA member firms. Email Communications & Membership Director Sam Sweeney at email@example.com for more information and to sign up.
- Holiday Party!
The STA’s second annual holiday celebration will be on Thursday, December 5th, from 5:30-7:30pm at the CohnReznick office in Manhattan. Look out for info on this fun evening in the near future.
As always, we add events and seminars to the schedule on a monthly basis. The best way to learn about them is to look out in your email or to read this monthly newsletter. You can always give the STA office a call at 212-398-6220 to inquire as well.
One other piece of news to pay close attention to over the coming months is the status of our legislative program. Due to the hard work of Arthur Rubenstein and our lobbyist, Perry Ochacher , as well as the state-wide subcontractors association, of which we are a member, I am proud to say that we got two bills through both houses of the state legislature, one dealing with delay damages and one with the definition of substantial completion. Currently, both are awaiting the signature of Governor Cuomo.
I look forward to seeing many of you on October 16th!
