Southeastern Carpenters were well represented at the 2019 National Build Expo, held this year in Atlanta in mid-July. Pictured here (left to right) is Atlanta Local 225 Council Rep Daniel Hicks, Local 225 member and Sisters in the Brotherhood Atlanta Coordinator Tammy Tatum, and Atlanta Training Coordinator Anthony Valdez.
“The Expo went great! We talked to at least 50 different contractors or companies, many of whom expressed interest in how we can help their manpower needs,” Hicks said. “We also talked with educators and legislators about our willingness to get involved with the local schools to make sure every graduate has a chance at building their own career.”
