A MESSAGE FROM THE CEO
DECEMBER 10, 2019
A Lot to Celebrate,
and Much to Look Forward to
Over the past couple months, as ABC San Diego has continued to focus on training the best apprentices in the region and pursuing work opportunities for our members, we also took time to recognize our members’ best projects with the Excellence in Construction Awards Dinner held at the La Jolla Aventine.
Over 100 guests attended this wonderful celebration that highlighted how our members are dedicated to building quality projects that move our region forward. The winners now advance to the National Excellence Awards Competition in Nashville, Tenn. in March 2020.
And, more recently, we watched the best of our apprentices compete for the coveted title of Regional Craft Champion, with the winners advancing to the next level and continue to compete for the title of National Craft Champion.
ABC San Diego has a lot to celebrate, and much to look forward to.
Over the past year ABC San Diego has taken the lead in building mutually respectful, collaborative, inclusive and innovative relationships with local, state and federal elected and appointed officials as well as with other members of our construction industry.
That’s important because the political environment in San Diego has changed. Since 2000 more than 20 major public projects in San Diego have included Project Labor Agreements. We anticipate more PLAs in the future.
The San Diego region is preparing for the near future in which several billion dollars worth of public projects are being planned. ABC San Diego is committed to ensuring that our apprentices and members will have the opportunity to participate in these massive public projects. The work highlighted at our recent events shows our members have the skill required to participate in these important projects.
I am honored to be ABC San Diego’s ambassador to our community, telling your stories to everyone I can. We continue to build new relationships and strengthen existing relationships within our industry and within our local and state government. We continue to work hard for our apprentices and our members.
