Only Two Weeks Away - Construction Week 2018
Construction Week is almost here! Show your industry pride by helping us promote the men and women in the commercial construction industry, and showcase the rewarding careers that are available right now! 

There are numerous ways for you and your company to celebrate Construction Week, and we have created a library of online resources to help! Here are a few ways you can participate in Construction Week: 

Submit Your Exceptional Field Workers
  • Help us shine the spotlight on your exceptional field workers! Member companies can submit up to five individuals who will be recognized on our social media accounts during Construction Week, in a gallery on our website, and in the Winter 2019 Edition of InsideMBI. Submission forms can be emailed to Aly Schmidt by September 27.

Hang Up the Construction Week 2018 Poster
  • You can print your own by downloading the artwork here, or email Nichole Fry to request to have a pre-printed poster sent to you!

Post on Social Media
  • We’ll post regularly during and leading up to Construction Week. You can either share these posts to your followers, or download the Social Media Toolkit & Images to use on your own. Remember to include #ConstructionWeek18 on all of your posts!

Celebrate!
  • Hand out appreciation gifts or job site gifts baskets to your employees and clients
  • Hold a company celebration (breakfast, lunch, break or outing)

Contact Local News Outlets

Get Involved with Schools
  • Construction Week is a great opportunity to reach out to your local schools in an effort to educate students, parents, teachers, and counselors about the rewarding career opportunities available in commercial construction. Your company can offer classroom presentations, job site tours, mentoring, and more! We have put together a contact list for Iowa schools.

Whatever you choose, be sure to share your ideas and pictures with us by using #ConstructionWeek18 in your social media posts, and by emailing them to aschmidt@mbionline.com . For more information about Construction Week and to access the online resources, visit www.mbionline.com/construction-week
Shine the Spotlight on Your Field Staff
During Construction Week 2018 (Oct. 1-5), we will “ shine the spotlight”  on exceptional field workers of our member firms on social media and in our communication pieces.

We are asking our members to submit exceptional field staff to shine the spotlight on them during Construction Week! We will post all submissions throughout the week on our Facebook and Twitter feeds. We will also create a photo gallery of all submissions on our website and they will be featured in the Winter Edition of the InsideMBI magazine. 

Simply return the  submission form  and a high-resolution photo of your exceptional field worker to  Aly Schmidt at aschmidt@mbionline.com by Thursday, September 27! Please limit your submissions to 5 individuals per company  (MBI member firms only) .
Notification Time!
With the MBI Mobile App now available for download from the App Store and Google Play Store, it is time to begin using it! There are many benefits to MBI members, but perhaps the most exciting is that by downloading the MBI App and logging in with your MBI credentials, you allow MBI to push notifications to your mobile device as reminders rather than sending you more paper in the mail.

In addition, the mobile app allows you to register for events and gives you one touch contact information for all MBI members and MBI staff.

For questions on the Mobile App you can contact Micah Loveless at MLoveless@mbionline.com .
