The success and growth of your Association is due to the efforts of volunteers serving on our committees. The Board of Directors will emphasize increased committee work as one of our goals. We encourage you and other members of your firm to choose one or more of these committees on which you’d like to help. Only one form has been sent to each member firm, so make sure all your employees have a chance to volunteer.
Brief Summary of SCA Committees:
- Architects/Government Liaison Committee
meet together since they often discuss the same topics. SCA members met with representatives from the City (Building Development Services and Public Works), City Utilities, Greene County, AIA, and MSPE.
- Chicken BBQ Committee
is responsible for planning, cooking and serving the traditional chicken dinner at the Chicken BBQ. The goal is to raise money for the SCA Scholarship Endowment Fund.
- Developer of the Year Committee
chooses the recipient of each year’s award from nomination forms submitted by members. The committee also developed the criteria to nominate and select the Project Team of the Year award. The awards are presented at the annual Salute to Construction Banquet in November.
- Golf Outing Committee
is responsible for setting up and taking down Hole Sponsor signs and for the beverage distribution system during the Spring and Summer Golf Outings. This committee is not recommended for those who want to play.
