MSCA21 Brought Service Contractors Together

October 29, 2021
Thank you to everyone who attended MSCA21 ... it was a resounding success! We enjoyed the beautiful casitas at the JW Marriott in Scottsdale, Arizona with views of Camelback and Mummy Mountains. We heard the inspiring life story of JR Martinez who kicked off our conference speaking  about how his struggles and successes helped him  face adversity. Then Kevin Brown touched our hearts as he described the ways we can all be heroes. And to end our conference we learned how to continue to go together, with Shola Richards.

Awards

Dick Starr (Cleveland, OH) received the 2021 D.S. O’Brien Award of Excellence on October 14. This award was established in 2000 to recognize individuals who exhibit extraordinary dedication and outstanding commitment to our industry and to MSCA. Learn more.

Seven years ago, MSCA introduced the Everyday Hero Award, thanks to the inspiration of MSCA21 D.S. O’Brien Award winner Dick Starr.  The award was created to recognize an employee from one of our member companies who, in his or her own extraordinary way, quietly gives of their time and skills to benefit others while seeking no recognition or compensation. Learn more and meet this year’s heroes.

Education & Social Activities

We had outstanding educational sessions and roundtable discussions each day. And of course, there were plenty of social events to help us enjoy our time together. The fan favorite activity of the week was goat yoga, with special appearances by two friendly alpacas! It was a workout that was worth the sweat!

Barb Dolim Recognized for 39 Years of Service

After 39 years, Barb Dolim will soon be retiring from her role as Executive Director of MSCA. Her work and achievements were celebrated at the Saturday morning session on October 16 with heartfelt remarks from MSCA Chair Mike Star, MCAA CEO Tim Brink, MSCA Past Chair Woody Woodall, the current MSCA Board of Managers and many Past Chairs. Congratulations, Barb! Learn more about the festivities and join us in wishing Barb well in the next phase of her life.

MSCA Welcomes Student Chapter Members

On Sunday MSCA was delighted to welcome student chapter members as the closing session of MSCA21 marked the start of the GreatFutures Forum. While navigating our COVID environment has made in person events a bit more challenging, adding the GreatFutures Forum to the end of MSCA gave students a chance to network and connect. It was a great way to bring students and service contractors together!

It’s A Wrap with the Mummy Mountain Bash

The conference ended with a wild night at Mummy Mountain with live music, delicious BBQ, and even a mechanical bull! It was a sweet end to a wonderful week of being Together At Last.

Plan to Join the Fun Next Year

The next MSCA conference plans to be just as exciting, so mark your calendar for October 16 – 19, 2022 in beautiful Huntington Beach, CA. Details will be announced on mcaa.org and in the weekly National Update as we get closer to the meeting date.
