Sponsors of the GreatFutures 2016 Student Chapter and Mechanical Contractors Summit (October 13-15, Denver, CO) helped make this our best Summit ever. MCAA thanks host MCA of Colorado and these fine member companies for their contributions to this annual conference: CNA, Milwaukee Tool, Murphy Company, NIBCO, Victaulic, Viega, U.S. Engineering and Zurn.
Each of these companies sponsored some aspect of the Summit. CNA contributed to a buffet luncheon, NIBCO supported the backpacks, Viega sponsored the t-shirts, Victaulic covered the water bottles and Zurn sponsored Subway gift cards. MCA of Colorado, Murphy Company, U.S. Engineering and Milwaukee Tool contributed to a dinner at the Breckenridge Brewery, which Summit attendees also toured.
The Summit drew more than 240 future professionals, faculty advisors, MCAA members, local association executives and guests for learning and networking. Student attendees gained more insight into the mechanical contracting and service industry and may even have met a future employer!
The conference opened with a technology exhibit, organized by BuiltWorlds, featuring the latest technologies that mechanical and service contractors are using at project sites and throughout business operations to increase productivity and profits. Educational sessions, announcement of the 2016-2017 MCAA Student Chapter Competition and the annual mini competition with a new twist offered a memorable experience.
