Emerging Leaders

The SBCA Emerging Leaders Committee was created to give the next generation of leaders in the structural building components industry and in SBCA an opportunity to meet one another, build lasting relationships, learn from others who will share their experiences and gain a greater depth of knowledge of the industry and its trade association. The intent is to provide sustainability, growth and enthusiasm for member companies and the association.

The committee is planning its second annual SBCA Casino Game Night Tuesday evening, October 23, to welcome attendees of all ages to BCMC 2018 in Milwaukee. In addition, the group is working on some workforce development initiatives to help CMs facilitate building relationships with teachers and students, as well as developing a new scholarship fund to assist qualified applicants with expenses related to attending SBCA Open Quarterly Meetings.
