President's Message

October 2017 - I am thrilled to serve as the NASCLA President for the 2017/2018 year. It is truly an honor to lead this amazing organization and I would like to thank you for both the opportunity and your confidence in me.

NASCLA had several impressive achievements over the last year, which were presented at our 2017 Annual Conference in Denver, Colorado. NASCLA Executive Director, Angie Whitaker, did a wonderful job highlighting the accomplishments, which we can all be proud of.

My presidency comes at an exciting time. We continue to grow as an organization in both service and membership, the NASCLA Accredited Electrical Examination Program will launch by the end of the year, and our new strategic plan is in place. We have set the path and now we will embark on the journey.

I am confident in a successful year being fortunate enough to have such great resources. It is the participation and engagement of our great members that provide a direct link to NASCLA’s values. The Board of Directors, Committee Chairs, and Committee Members dedicate their time and contribute their expertise and leadership towards the organization’s priorities striving for the common goal of supporting the strategic focus areas and objectives.

I would also like to recognize Angie Whitaker, NASCLA Executive Director, and her staff. Their professionalism, quality of work, and achievements are remarkable. I would also like to acknowledge the outstanding customer service they provide. They are responsive, extremely efficient and excel in meeting the needs and requests of our members.

I look forward to serving as your president this year and encourage you to reach out to me if there is anything I can be assistance of. Thank you for your commitment to NASCLA and your contributions in promoting excellence in the construction industry.
