I’ve had such a wonderful first full year with RAMCA! I have enjoyed working with Vanessa, getting to know many of the members better and I appreciate how welcome everyone has made me feel. Before I started, Vanessa told me how much she enjoyed working with all the mem-bers and after a year I absolutely understand how she feels!
Much of my focus has been on assisting with the planning and execution of RAMCA’s almost monthly events. From golf to dinner meetings to the Installation of Officers and Legislators Night, we continue to look for ways to change the format of the events or simply change a venue to keep things new and interesting. Working with members on the social and golf committees has been a great source of new ideas. Committees are open to anyone, please contact me to be added to the committee list. The Golf, Social and Membership Committees all recently met to work on the upcoming events. See details on pages 11-13 for all the second quarter events as well as some information about the new “Associate Showcase” being planned for September 13th.
My other priority is the growth of the RAMCA Training Programs. For several years, RAMCA only offered a First Aid and CPR class once a year. In January of 2017, RAMCA began offering monthly Erosion and Sediment Control Contractors Certification classes to RAMCA members and non-members alike. In 2018 we have added Basic, Intermediate and Advanced (as needed) Work Zone Safety with flagger certification. See the chart below for the classes we have scheduled. We will add more Work Zone Safety classes quarterly. If your company would ever like a private class (8 attendee minimum) either at your location or at one of RAMCA’s training locations, please contact me and we can set one up that works for your schedule. Be sure everyone on your team has all the necessary certifications before the big busy season is under-way!
Hope to see you at the next event!
