Dear ASA Members,
August always feels like a time of transition. While in many ways we are still in the thick of summer, kids are headed back to school and those earliest leaves have started to touch the ground. Times of transition are always an opportunity to look forward, and I am glad that we at ASA are doing just that. In a year that has been like no other, new beginnings are always exciting.
ASA continues to advocate for the needs and issues important to the subcontracting community, and I am thrilled by each and every success. One such example is that ASA is currently working to make sure that Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans are available to all who need them. ASA members are strong, and we will fight together for what is important. The current health crisis has affected us all, and our best weapon in this fight is information. ASA’s national website is constantly updated with news and guidelines on our COVID-19 page, so please make sure you are staying connected with all of the latest information.
I am also excited to share that ASA is supporting the American Infrastructure Bonds Act of 2020, designed to help local governments fund vital public projects. Those projects create the opportunity to directly support many of our ASA member companies, which shows just how important advocacy is to this organization. Each and every day ASA is working for you, and we embrace every opportunity to work with our members at the national and chapter level. Together we are a stronger organization!
As you know, registration for SUBExcel is open, and I look forward to being on the beach with you all. Don’t forget that the deadline for the Sandcastle Building Competition is coming soon! I can’t wait to see all of your designs and creations, and then meet up with you on the beach to build a new castle in February. Sand and fun, as well as networking and education, sounds like the perfect family vacation once we are on the other side of 2020. I hope to see you there!
ASA President 2020-2021
