Episode 13: Getting Involved – A Past President’s Take on How, What, and Why
Friday, August 28 at 2:00 p.m. EDT

We hope you have enjoyed getting to know some of the members of the MCAA community this summer. Each of John’s guests has been an essential contributor to the organization, and it is people like these who make MCAA great.

In the final episode of the season, John will once again welcome a key MCAA player – our Immediate Past President, Mike Brandt (President & CEO, Smith and Oby Company, Inc.). Mike joins John to tell the story of how he began as a pipefitter and ended up not only President of his company, but also of MCAA. He credits his rise through the ranks to community and organizational involvement: from starting out as local Welding Technical Chair on the National Certified Pipe Welding Bureau, to getting involved in his local MCA, to serving on national committees. There are so many opportunities for networking, learning, and growth in the industry – and Mike has experience with a lot of them.

This week’s episode will explore Mike’s journey, while talking about how to take advantage of all that the national and local associations have to offer. John and Mike will discuss how to go about getting involved and how this involvement can help you, your career, and your company.
