Of Interest...

Sarabeth Gandara talks about her experiences with MCAA and how the mechanical contracting industry is the perfect mix of technical and personal relationships.

To continue providing the top-of-the-line education that MCAA is known for, our Career Development Committee has come together to develop the GreatFutures Virtual Education Fall Program! The program is aimed to help give the next generation of mechanical contracting leaders a deeper understanding of the industry and the ins and outs of creating a construction bid. The program will start September 15 and continue through November 16, 2020.

The mechanical contracting industry provides many career paths, and that includes the opportunity to work for an MCA local affiliated association. This summer, MCA of Chicago has two interns, Judie Prophete and Ervin Prophete. They are learning about how an association is managed and how the MCA of Chicago provides resources and education to its members.

McElroy’s Inc., an MCA of Kansas City member, presented Parker Beal with an MCAA Internship Grant at the start of his 2020 summer internship. The grant is funded by the John R. Gentille Foundation. Parker said, “This grant will help me continue to fund my college degree and expenses. I see this not only as a great learning opportunity, but also as a motivation to tell other interns in the future about what I have learned and experienced in the mechanical industry.”

The ever evolving COVID-19 restrictions have forced MCAA member companies to adapt to new normals. U.S. Engineering, has transitioned their summer internship program to a virtual platform. Kenny Griffin, Iowa State University MCAA Student Chapter member, is one of the current interns.

In this month’s Beyond the Classroom video, University of Nebraska senior, Ali Brown shares her perspective on entering the mechanical contracting industry and emphasizes the importance of business and human resources.
