In each installment of this series, we will profile a member of the Mechanical Contracting Education & Research Foundation’s (MCERF) Board of Trustees. These volunteers represent the association’s contractor, service, and manufacturer/supplier members, as well as its local affiliates and academic advisers. They work behind the scenes to raise money and ensure the standards necessary to make MCAA successful in meeting the mega- education and research issues confronting its members.
In 2017, MCERF decided the Chair of MCAA’s Career Development Committee would become a standing member of MCERF’s Board of Trustees. This would ensure that goals and funding for MCAA’s Career Development Initiative could maintain alignment. That same year, Jon Finch, Vice President of Training at Milwaukee Tool, was elected Chair of the Career Development Committee becoming the first manufacturer/supplier representative to chair an MCAA national committee. Meet MCERF Trustee, Jon Finch.
