The Steel Erectors Association of America has joined other industry stakeholders in publicly supporting seven policy recommendations to make the United States the world leader in workforce development.
RT 335, issued this month, tackles the topic: “Restoring the Dignity of Work: Transforming the U.S. Workforce Development System into a World Leader.” This advocacy document is meant to educate local, state, and federal legislators on why reforming our workforce system is critical. It outlines seven policies that can be implemented in less than three years that will positively impact workforce development.

Four new officers were elected to the Steel Erectors Association of America’s Board of Directors during the July Board Meeting held in Orlando, Fla.
An independent panel of judges on behalf of The Steel Erectors Association of America selected three steel construction projects for the association’s annual Projects of the Year. Teams from Gardner-Watson Decking (Class I for erection contracts up to $500,000), Buckner Companies (Class III above $1 million to $2.5 million), and J.P. Cullen & Sons (Class IV over $2.5 million) were honored at SEAA’s 2018 Annual Convention, held in April in Greensboro, N.C. Note, no awards were granted in the Class II category ($500,000 to $1 million) for 2017.
The winning projects demonstrate the range and complexity of steel construction in the United States. One project was a steel decking job on a massive distribution center in Louisville, Ky., for a retail company ruled by capitalism and the Almighty Dollar. The other two jobs were temples of worship—one to Almighty God and the other the NBA’s Milwaukee Bucks.
The Steel Erectors Association of America (SEAA) was recently recognized by the Construction Marketing Association (CMA) annual STAR™ Awards for marketing excellence in the construction industry.
