Chairman's Message: Building Our Future Scholarship
ABCperforms a number of important roles. Weprovide services that help our member companies succeed, work to improve theconstruction industry and to ensure a level playing field for merit-shopcontractors.
Butfew of the things we do are more rewarding for those of us involved in ABC thaninvesting in the future leaders of our organization and industry.
Thismonth we will do just that when we launch the Building Our Future ScholarshipProgram. The annual scholarship will beopen to any student nominated by an ABC member who is accepted into orcurrently enrolled in a construction-related baccalaureate or two-year degreeprogram. Those enrolled in ABC MeritApprenticeship Program are also eligible.
Thescholarship will also honor ABC “legends,” those who have played a criticalrole in building our organization. Twenty-six past ABC chairmen will be inducted as the first class oflegends on November 18th as part of ABC’s Excellence in Construction Awards (EICA)gala at the Westin hotel in Waltham.
It’sonly fitting that the legends should be recognized at the annual EICA dinner,where we recognize the very best in construction. This year’s 12 winnersonce again demonstrate the diversity, versatility and craftsmanship of ABC’sopen-shop contractors.

ABC’sBoard of Directors believes it is critically important that we establish andsustain a well-funded scholarship to help children of ABC members meet theincreasingly high cost of higher education. The scholarship will also help develop the talent and leadership ourindustry will need to thrive in the future.
