MCAA’s student chapter program is dedicated to helping students prepare for careers in the mechanical construction and service industry. When a student joins a chapter, MCAA, MCAA’s local affiliate and the college or university commit to providing that student every opportunity to develop professional skills, knowledge and experiences. MCAA’s Career Development Committee has created new resources to help student chapter members manage the overall operations, recruitment and successes of a chapter.

The MCAA Student Chapter Competition received 33 submissions from chapters. This year’s project details were generously provided by Fresh Meadow Mechanical Corporation of Fresh Meadows, New York. The students have been tasked with developing a proposal to be the prime contractor on a chiller and cooling tower replacement project in the Penn South building in New York City. The Final Four will be announced by Friday, January 17. The Final Four teams will compete at MCAA2020 on Monday, March 16 from 1:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.

His simple and effective frameworks help organizations build high-functioning team players and leaders. For Mills, it is all about enabling his audiences to achieve more than what they originally thought was possible. MCAA thanks Trimble for sponsoring this speaker.
