2020 SBCA Emerging Leaders Scholarship
“Receiving this scholarship has opened up the door to understanding so much more about the industry than I deal with during my daily routine. It has shown me all the different aspects that come into play in running a component manufacturing company from many experienced and established individuals across the country.”
–Kyle May, Regional Manager, G2 National, 2019 SBCA Emerging Leaders Scholarship Recipient
“The experience and connections you make by attending quarterly meetings is unforgettable. You’re connecting with people who have been in the industry for many years and others who are just getting into it. Everyone I have talked to has provided me with great advice and insight on how the industry has changed and how it’s currently changing.”
–Shawnee Gunnett, Structrual Estimator, Big C Lumber, 2019 SBCA Emerging Leaders Scholarship Recipient
Designed for members of the Structural Building Components Association (SBCA) who are young in the industry and have demonstrated potential leadership in both their individual companies and in the association, the SBCA Emerging Leaders Scholarship will be used to help qualified members defray the costs of attending one or more Open Quarterly Meetings in 2020 so they can experience the work of the Emerging Leaders Committee and the SBCA board in general. Open Quarterly Meetings in 2020 will be held February 26-28 in Miami, FL; May 18-20 at Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, WV; and August 4-6 in Park City, UT. Get highlights from past meetings here.
Scholarship recipients who meet the requirements for participation may be invited to join SBCA’s Emerging Leaders Committee, which was created to give the next generation of leaders in the structural building components industry and 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.
