The Steel Erectors Association of America (SEAA) held its annual Education Fundraiser Golf Tournament, and the Boom Lift Ball Drop Raffle last month.
Both activities fund safety and education projects for the implementation of new craft training programs. The golf tournament was preceded by a Meet and Greet Reception where more than 50 people attended. The reception included a presentation by Tim Eldridge, President of Education Services Unlimited and SEAA’s Craft Training and Assessment Administrator, on the SEAA/NCCER Ironworker Craft Training Program. The reception was sponsored by member company Pneutek, Inc.
The next day, more than 100 golfers participated in the golf tournament. First place winners of the tournament were Ron Coleman, Jonathan Fischer, Jon Landrum, and David Cagle of Vision Contractors Inc., of Raleigh, N.C. The Boom Lift Ball Drop raffle was won by Tom Schlickbernd, of Vulcraft. Proceeds from the tournament and the ticket sales are split between the winner and SEAA’s Safety and Education Committee.
“We appreciate the support of sponsors, including United Rentals who facilitates the Boom Lift Ball Drop, each year. The golf tournament is the primary fundraising activity which supports our craft training grant program. Next year will be the fifth year SEAA has funded grants to assist member companies who are newly implementing the SEAA/NCCER Ironworker Craft training program,” said Tom Underhill, Executive Director of SEAA.
