Construction Citizen: ABC Members and NCC Competitors Inspired By Opening Presentations At ABC Convention 2018

From Construction Citizen:

The Opening General Session of the ABC Convention 2018 in Long Beach, California began this year with an explosion of sound and excitement. The procession of this year’s National Craft Championships competitors into the crowded Grand Ballroom of the Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center was led by none other than the uniformed horns and drums of the University of Southern California’s famous Trojan Marching Band! The band stood at the front of the hall and continued to play until all of the competitors and project managers for the competitions had reached their seats at the front of the room. ABC National Chair George R. Nash Jr. and ABC’s VP of EH&S and Workforce Development Greg Sizemore, the emcees of the session who had warmed up the crowd with a comedic “fake opening” before the band and competitors entered, looked on from the stage.

As the audience began to settle back into their seats, Sizemore asked the 171 competitors competing in the National Craft Championships and the members of the 16 college teams who were competing in the Construction Management Competition to “stand up and be recognized in this room.” The applause continued when Sizemore then asked all former NCC competitors to stand and be recognized. Next Sizemore introduced and had stood the finalists for Craft Professional of the Year: Richard Brown of Gaylor Electric, Troy Clinger of Kent Companies, Jeff Dickman of Van Dyken Mechanical, and Jaime Ramos of MAREK Brothers. Finally, Sizemore recognized the finalists for Craft Instructor of the Year: Jason Ashlaw representing ABC Empire State Chapter, David Clements representing ABC Cornhusker Chapter, William Fuller representing ABC Greater Houston Chapter, Roosevelt Norwood representing ABC Pelican Chapter, and Eugene Senter representing ABC Indiana/Kentucky Chapter.
