Affordable Care Act Informational Session

As many of you know, WC&C recently held an Affordable Care Act Informational Session at Terrace on the Park.  

I would like to thank Sharon M. Goodman and Meredith B. Brodksy, both principals at Slevin & Hart, P.C., for graciously presenting us with information on how to comply with the Affordable Care Act Reporting Requirements. Their presentation was very educational and a tremendous benefit to all who attended.  T
opics discussed included employer reporting obligations and potential penalties for non-compliance.  

Timely programs like this are an important element of your WC&C membership.  If you have a subject for a future "informational session" that you believe would be of value to members, please contact me.  

t wishes for a happy, healthy and prosperous 2016.    — John DeLollis

The Human Resources Factor

Last month at the AWCI Conference in Vancouver, I am pleased to report the sentiment around the country was very positive in regard to business opportunities for wall and ceiling contractors.  A topic I heard repeated from around the country is the concerns about labor shortages and the challenges of employing and retaining qualified personnel.  Perhaps the most alarming example was a General Contractor had decided to self-perform the carpentry work and to add insult to injury, began raiding sub-contractors of personnel to perform the work.  Self-performing models of eliminating subs to save money is not new.  Our industry is evolving before our eyes.  Half the battle is holding on to market share, streamlining business process through technology and surrounding yourself with qualified people who share your vision of success.  These components are critical to survival in the new paradigm as a wall and ceiling contractor. (Click "read more" below for entire post).

Congratulations to 
Nancy Brinkerhoff from Ironwood Commercial Builders, Inc. who is in the chairs to become the first female AWCI president in year 2019.  I would like to wish her good luck as she ascends to the presidency. -- Mike Weber
