Local Social Programs
Most members involved in the Wyoming Construction Coalition are involved in building construction, commercial and industrial, private and public. Instead of monthly bid lettings that may occur in other sectors of construction, building projects may be bidding anywhere in the state at almost any time.
Even though it may be difficult to hold meetings in conjunction with bid lettings, it is no excuse for our members not to occasionally get together, especially in our local areas. That’s why we started the WCC Local Socials.
Local Socials provide excellent opportunities to network with other construction professionals, and provide opportunities for WCC Board members and staff to hear directly from our members. We have frank discussions about what the association is working on, and should be working on.
We discuss state and local legislative and regulatory issues, safety training and education opportunities, as well as general industry happenings and concerns. WCC utilizes local socials to help prioritize our actions, draft positions and policies, and inform our membership as well as the public.
Its not unusual to see owners, officials and regulators at our Local Socials as well. In fact, you may see building inspectors, state agency directors, political candidates and elected officials from all levels of government.
All of this better ensures we are staying in line with our mission:
“The Wyoming Construction Coalition is the voice of Wyoming’s construction profession, uniting with the public and private sector to provide legislative oversight, education programs and resource information for a more prosperous construction industry.”
