MCAA is once again sponsoring the annual JBKnowledge Technology Survey. Although the survey only takes a few minutes to complete, the questions that it asks will make you consider the choices that your company makes regarding technology and the direction that you are heading.

Each month we will introduce an MCAA/MSCA woman leader, faculty advisor or student involved in our Women in the Mechanical Industry Initiative. These one minute videos will help you learn a little more about them, their careers, how they got in the industry and why WiMI is so valuable to them.

The Management Methods Committee has released a new WebBook that summarizes and compares the various United Association national labor agreements. With our new WebBook platform, MCAA members can access some of our more recent bulletins on current topics. You will be able to read new Management Methods Bulletins, take notes, print sections, and share with colleagues. And most importantly, when we have updated content, unlike a downloaded pdf, our WebBooks will be updated behind the scenes while your notes are preserved securely on your computer.

MCAA’s GreatFutures Forum is set for September 19 – 21, 2019. During the event, participants will have the opportunity to tour the mechanical systems of the Museum of the Bible, one of the newer museums in Washington, D.C.

Leaders charged with building and maintaining high performance teams have a unique challenge to keep the well-oiled machine communicating, creating and achieving.  To achieve and sustain this level of performance from both the team and the leader, Colonel (Ret.) Tom Magness, embraces the notion that daily training builds confidence and competence, while providing essential skills and knowledge—resulting in readiness.

The Mechanical-Electrical Academic Consortium (MEAC) Faculty Training Boot Camp provided educators from universities across the U.S. with a crash course in the basics of mechanical and electrical systems. By giving educators the tools they need to more effectively teach students about our industry, it is hoped that more students will explore the career opportunities available in specialty contracting. The event took place at the Milwaukee School of Engineering from June 11-13, 2019.

Accident/incident investigation allows you to identify hazards and unsafe behaviors so that you can implement measures to prevent recurrence. MCAA’s Model Accident/Incident Investigation Program will help contractors to quickly and easily establish an effective investigation program.

Now is the time to prepare your fitters, plumbers, and service techs for the looming dog days of summer. By providing them with the knowledge they’ll need to prevent heat stress related illnesses, you ensure their safety down the road.

This program is focused on training and improving the performance of service field supervisors. Using proven methods, this program will advance skills in leadership, coaching, planning, time management, communication, and motivational techniques, all of which will give the field supervisor an edge and the confidence to deal with the workplace challenges of today.

MCAA’s Virtual Trade Show connects our contractor members with the members of MCAA’s Manufacturer/Supplier Council.

Make sure your service techs have the up-to-date safety training they need to protect themselves from arc flash and electrical shock hazards while working on equipment pushing 480 volts or less. The session covers all applicable OSHA requirements, NFPA 70E provisions, best practices, and real-world accident information.
