The ABC Pelican Chapter Emerging Leaders Group last met on November 20th to close out the 2014 year. The newly created group, in existence for only three years, continues to expand its emerging leaders within the construction industry and the
ABC Pelican Chapter. At the start of 2015, the Emerging Leaders Group is expected to reach a record number of just over 60 members. There were a total of five meetings this past year. The first meeting of the year was held at ABC followed by meetings at Performance Contractors, Inc., Triad Electric and Controls, MMR Group and The Tin Roof Brewery. Each meeting consisted of a keynote speaker whose topics ranged from understanding the history of ABC, why ABC was formed and the challenging times that led to the creation of the association, understanding and involvement of ABC’s PAC, the legislature, state budgets, importance of serving on committees and leadership development. The Emerging Leaders Group would like to thank the following keynote speakers for taking the time to educate and visit with us: Scott Barringer – Pala Interstate, LLC, Lee Jenkins – Performance Contractors, Inc., Roland Toups – Turner Industries, Senator Jack Donahue – LA Senate, Sarah Taylor – Gulf Coast Occupational Medicine, Inc. and Gary Golden – Golden Opportunities. In addition to the keynote speakers, the ABC Emerging Leaders Group would also like to thank Performance Contractors, Inc, MMR Group, Petrin Corporation and Triad Electric and Controls for sponsoring this year’s socials. As one of the original members of this Pelican Chapter, ABC Emerging Leaders Group, I am proud of the results of our mission in 2014 and excited to announce our 2015 Chair Josh Coots with Pala Interstate and Vice Chair Jeremiah Worthington with Triad Electric and Controls. Please join me in congratulating these two young leaders who were voted in and help support this group by identifying additional leaders within your company and getting them involved. This is a perfect opportunity to invest in the development of the next generation of leaders for the Pelican Chapter and your company!
