The Ambassador Committee is charged with growing and maintaining the Building Congress & Exchange’s membership. The Committee is responsible for promoting the BC&E mission and membership benefits. The committee connects with members and future members at BC&E Networking Events and Signature Events throughout the year and connects with members that have not been active to encourage BC&E involvement. This committee is also involved in planning BC&E’s events.
The Craftsmanship Committee actively participates in the craftsmanship nomination and review process for BC&E’s signature Craftsmanship Awards program. Nominations are received from construction-related firms for craftsmen who have displayed superior quality and excellence. The Committee tours the work of each nominated craftsman and determines the top 20 award winners, who are honored at a ceremony each year in November.
The Finance Committee designs a plan by which the Building Congress & Exchange can manage its cash flow and bookkeeping and presents recommendations to the Executive Committee.
The Programs committee is charged with helping create virtual and in-person events. Along with coordinating educational seminars relevant to the membership and industry. We are always looking for ways to enhance our virtual and in-person events.
Young Professionals Committee
The Young Professionals of the Building Congress & Exchange is a group of individuals in the construction industry focused on creating an environment for professionals under 35 to make connections and grow together, while also working to help advance construction in the 21st century. This includes educating young members on areas of construction outside their immediate job duties to help them better succeed professionally and individually, giving back to the community, providing mentorship from similar individuals, and increasing opportunities to make both social and professional connections.
