The United Association (UA) and the Mechanical Contractors Association of America (MCAA) have announced the creation of the Mechanical Industry Future Leaders Institute, a jointly funded and managed initiative. The associations are designing the new three‐day program to provide leadership education to the future field leaders of the mechanical industry. This joint initiative is a key part of the UA‐MCAA Strategic Planning Committee’s efforts to proactively position the industry for continued success and growth.
This unique program will be held at the UA’s state‐of‐the‐art training facility in Annapolis, Maryland, and the associations plan to launch the first program session this coming fall. Their vision for how the Mechanical Industry Future Leaders Institute will work is laid out below:
The associations believe the UA consists of extremely talented individuals who will greatly benefit from this program. They also believe the industry has a responsibility to provide as much education as possible to future leaders. And, they believe that providing future leaders the education they need to be successful is the joint responsibility of labor and management.
The associations know the Mechanical Industry Future Leaders Institute will be viewed by the entire construction industry as a shining example of what labor and management can achieve when they work together and prepare for a better future. They look forward to sharing more in the coming months about this exciting new joint program.
