A note from the president:
Thank you for visiting the Construction Club website! This 2013-14 school year, I hope that our club can provide students with many opportunities to network with industry professionals as well as get to know other students within the Construction Engineering and Management Program. That being said, I welcome students from any major across our campus who have an interest in construction to come and see what our club is all about.
This Spring we plan to have biweekly meetings and are making an added effort to network with the construction organizations we are affiliated with. I highly encourage all Construction Club members to go to one of the events hosted by these groups to learn more about trends and meet potential mentors. All the events we get invited to can be seen on our calender and are discussed at general meetings. A big thank you also goes out to all the chapter representatives and companies who have reached out to our group, we thank you for your support and look to build stronger ties with you!
As usual, our biggest event of the year will be our annual Construction Club Banquet. For the first time in the club’s history, the banquet will be held at the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery. Company registration is already underway for this event and this year it will not be something to miss! I hope you plan to join us on Friday, April 25, 2014. This event is free to any Construction Club member. Companies interested in attending can email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
If you have any questions about our club please don’t hesitate to contact me or anyone on the officer team and we would be glad to help.
Hope to see you at one of our events soon!
Sarah Tenpas, Construction Club President 2013-14
What is the Construction Club?
In 1997 the Construction Club was established to serve the needs of students in the Construction Engineering and Management program. The primary goal of the Construction Club is to foster contacts between UW-Madison engineering students and the design and construction industry. The Construction Club is an umbrella organization for student chapters of AGC (Associated General Contractors), NECA (The National Electrical Contractors Association), MCAA (The Mechanical Contractors Association of America), ABC (Associated Builders and Contractors) and CSI (The Construction Specifications Institute).
Want to join the fun?
Joining the Construction Club is not only beneficial to you, but also fun and easy! Come to one of our meetings or stop by our office, M1069, in Engineering Centers Building and pick up a registration form. When it is complete return it to one of our officers at a meeting or in our dropbox at the office with your payment. Membership for the 2013-2014 school year is $10. Once you are a paid member, you will be able to attend all club meetings and the Spring banquet free of charge.
