MCAA’s 2nd annual GreatFutures Forum, held in Anaheim, CA was a huge win-win for MCAA and student chapter members. The annual Job Fair saw 250 students from 30 MCAA student chapters network with representatives of 40 MCAA contractor and manufacturer-supplier companies offering jobs and internships. Everyone left happy!
The 2018 GreatFutures Forum will be the kick off for the new MCAA Student Chapter Presidents Advisory Council. The council will be composed of MCAA Student Chapter Presidents, created to help advise the MCAA Career Development Committee of student issues and concerns, and be a resource for MCAA’s GreatFutures planning. The committee will look to these students for innovations and improvements to the program.
Registration for MCAA’s 2018 GreatFutures Forum is now open! This year’s conference will be held in Anaheim, CA at the Anaheim Marriott from Thursday, September 27 – Saturday, September 29. We are excited to offer an exclusive opportunity where students from MCAA Student Chapters can explore, and even join, the world of mechanical contracting!
Students attending MCAA’s GreatFutures Forum got a first-hand look at what it’s really like to be a mechanical contractor thanks to “Ted: A Day in the Life.” The video follows Ted McHugh of West Chester Mechanical Contractors in Aston, PA through a typical workday. In addition to highlighting the daily demands associated with keeping a project on time and within budget, it showcases how a great future is achievable in the mechanical industry.
