August 12, 2020

The Association of the Wall and Ceiling Industry has been named as one of 100 associations “that will save the world” by the nation’s premier organization for associations and staff.

The summer 2020 issue of the American Society of Association Executives’ magazine, Associations Now, recognized AWCI in the workforce category for its efforts to “build up the builders” during labor shortages and a pandemic.

“AWCI has partnered with coalitions and unions to promote careers in skilled trades, and members are creating futuristic tools to maximize workers already in the field,” said Rasheeda Childress, an associate editor at Associations Now.

“We are proud and honored to be recognized by ASAE as one of their 100 associations shaping the future,” said Michael F. Stark, AWCI’s CEO. “As one of only three construction trade associations featured, it is gratifying for AWCI, our chapters and our partners to be recognized for working alongside our 2,400 member companies with workforce training and education, and knowing we continue to have a positive impact, even in challenging tiimes.”
