WELCOME TO CMAA CENTRAL PENNSYLVANIA
From the Chapter President
CMAA Central PA Chapter Members
This is my final note to you as my tenure has come to an end as your Chapter President. We started this crusade to create a chapter in central PA at the national conference in 2018. In 2019, we made it happen! I want to thank Joel Keels, my mentor, and the steering committee members who were instrumental in making this chapter to become a reality. And finally, a thank you to the sitting officers of the board and the committee chairs for your support over the last two years. It has not been easy for us since January 2020 when Andrea presented us our Charter at Marzoni’s. Soon after that date, COVID-19 impacted us directly. Businesses shut their doors. Thanks to donations from some of our corporate sponsors, we were able to award one of the three scholarships and two of the three project award categories. As we rolled into 2021, things were starting to look better. We hosted our first annual golf outing where 15 teams played in the rain but we were able to raise enough money to fund all three scholarships that I hope we will award in January. We forged relationships with KCA with their Improving Project Outcomes series. And now I will pass the baton to Gil and his board for them to take the Chapter further over the next 12 months. Please give Gil and his board the support needed to make the chapter grow. Send him your ideas. Volunteer to help. The chapter will not succeed without your support.
Congratulations to Tim Gingrich for being awarded a 2021 CCM Coin of Excellence!!!
Congratulations to Alexander Building Construction Co. for winning two national project awards in the Education and Commercial/Sports/Entertainment/Hospitality categories!!!
And finally, our Chapter Project Awards due date is now October 27, 2021. The same date that the Scholarship applications are due.
Thank you again.
