  • Sold Out Golf Tournament in October, raising scholarship funds for students pursuing degrees in the field of construction at Arizona universities, for first time VoS conference attendees, and for VoS members pursuing their CCIFP certifications
  • Top notch presenters at the May Education Forum and at each of the monthly luncheons keeping VoS members informed and educated on industry topics
  • Members engaging in community service opportunities including citrus gleaning, Feed My Starving Children, UMom Walk for Homeless Families and St. Mary's Food Bank

  • Largest chapter presence at the National Conference in Las Vegas in June
  • Over a dozen members sitting for their CCIFP certification in December
