CFMA VOS Chapter Updates
December 1, 2015
2015 in Review
Another great year for Valley of the Sun!

It's been a great year for the Valley of the Sun chapter!  Here are a few of the highlights:
  • Dave James receiving the Joe Quigley Award and Marj Weber receiving the Deborah Hahn Award
  • Winning Chapter of the Year
  • TPT Seminars held at Phoenix Country Club and Harkins Theaters - leading the industry to educate hundreds of contractors on changes to TPT affecting the construction industry
  • Anirban Basu as our keynote speaker at our Education Forum in May
  • Members showing overwhelming support for our UMom Back to School drive, as well as their Back to School night and Walk for Homeless Families.  Our Community Service group also participated in citrus gleaning for Desert Mission Food Bank and emergency food box packing for St. Mary's Food Bank
  • An outstanding Construction Executive of the Year event where Bo Calbert of McCarthy was named Executive of the Year and Jed Billings of FNF received the Pioneer Award. 
This is of course in addition to the hugely successful golf tournament, the excellent programs at our monthly lunches, and the overall positive impact that our chapter members have in our local construction industry!
Happy Holidays to all - and here's to an even greater 2016 ahead!

ASU vs. U of A Basketball Game
Immediate Action Needed!
An ever popular and quick to sell out VoS event is the annual ASU vs. U of A basketball game.  This year's game will be on Sunday, January 3 at noon.  Tickets are $65 each, and include a second ticket to another game (which can be donated to the Boys & Girls Club if you are unable to use) during the holidays. 
Tickets must be ordered by this Friday, December 4th  - so if you are interested e-mail Glenda today!  She can give you full details on the additional game options and, most importantly, secure your seats for the January 3rd game!
Social Event Survey
Last Chance!
If you haven't already done so, please participate here  with your thoughts and opinions on the type, frequency and scheduling of future chapter social events.  Jim Bracy and Michelle Walker are organizing more opportunities for chapter members and their guests to socialize and network outside of the more formal chapter events.  Plans for early 2016 events will be coming soon, so stay tuned!
Sun Devil Stadium Tour
December Lunch Event
In keeping with tradition, December's monthly lunch will be one week earlier than usual - Thursday, December 10th - and will be a special event - this year it's a field trip!  We'll meet up at Packard Stadium for lunch and then be given a personal tour of the Sun Devil Stadium remodel project.  This is an active construction site - so hardhats are required   , please bring your own.
Click here  for more information and to register by this Friday, December 4.  Also, monetary donations will be collected for St. Mary's Food Bank, so please bring cash, check payable to St. Mary's or card to help out for the holidays!
