Michael Schmerbeck, President
As one of the founding fathers of Masonry Contractors of New Jersey, New Jersey Chapter I.C.E, having served as its first Association President over twenty years ago, it is an honor to be nominated by the Board of Directors and elected by the membership to serve once again as President for the 2015-2017 term.
As I begin this two-year term as Association President, there are many jobs currently undergoing bidding and taking place. We are seeing a steady increase and this trend is likely to continue. I hope all of you see this uptick and are a part of it.
I encourage all of our members to be active and bring good, positive ideas to our attention. With our combined ideas, experience, skills and knowledge, we can collaborate with our industry colleagues to stay true to our mission: to represent the interests of our members and to promote union masonry construction throughout the state.
I am also honored to Co-Chair the International Masonry Institute Board of Directors, a group that has demonstrated both great energy and enthusiasm to advance our trade into the future with their training and marketing programs.
New Jersey’s voice is well represented on a national level and our resolve is stronger than ever to lead the charge and gain a competitive edge. We know we build better – quality union masonry construction completed on time and on budget.
I encourage you to reach out to me, or any of our directors, with your questions and feedback so we can help our industry succeed. Thank you again for allowing me the opportunity to serve as your Association President.
