As a result, their labor-management partnership is ranked as one of the best in the industry.

This year, eleven contractors participated in the event and selected one of their highly qualified employees to receive this special recognition for their craftsmanship, leadership, and dedication to the industry. The guest list topped 104 contractors, honorees, business manager, business agents, JATC instructors, national SMACNA executives, specially invited guests, and spouses.
