On Tuesday, October 30th, more than 200 people came together to make this year’s Trade Show another success. A record 38 Associate Members participated and displayed the world-class products and services offered to our industry. The evening allowed for a unique networking opportunity that gave contractors a more in-depth look at the varied associate members available to help improve jobsites and business practices. Unlike our regular membership meetings, admission was not limited to management personnel and contractors were encouraged to include foremen, estimators, project managers, accounting and purchasing staff, and anyone else who could benefit from this event.
The Trade Show also featured over $3,000 in prizes, associate member giveaways and raffles, and a 50/50 to raise funds for the Steamfitting Industry Assistance Program (SIAP). Attendees raised $1,020 through the 50/50, with $510 donated to the SIAP, an organization dedicated to helping Local 638 steamfitters, contractors, and family members find help and counseling when dealing with addiction related difficulties.
Thank you to the many attendees and presenters for making the Eighth Annual Trade Show another successful event!
