METALCON would like to congratulate Jennifer Heimburger of Heimburger Construction Inc. as the next president of the Metal Building Contractors and Erectors Association (MBCEA). The MBCEA National Board ratified the election of officers and new board members during its annual meeting held October 7, 2021, in Tampa, FL during the METALCON trade show. Jennifer is currently serving as vice president of MBCEA.
DesignandBuildwithMetal reports, “Heimburger will take over from Art Hance, of Hance Construction, who will become Past President. The new term starts January 1, 2022 and runs for two years. MBCEA officers and board members were elected by an electronic vote of the association membership and will be introduced at the MBCEA Annual Conference opening session on April 27, 2022.” Heimburger says, “It’s an honor to be elected President of the MBCEA. Art Hance has left the association in a great position as we move on from the pandemic. I look forward to working with the new board in our mission to promote the professionalism of our industry with new training initiatives, social media campaigns and, of course, our spring conference.”
According to MBCEA, “Jennifer has been with Heimburger Construction, Inc. since 1999. Her father, Bob Heimburger, started the family business in 1978. HCI has been affiliated with Butler Manufacturing since its inception. Both Jennifer and Bob have served on Butler’s advisory council and Jennifer was the first female chairman in 2016. HCI achieved the AC478 accreditation in 2021 and strongly supports the efforts of the MBCEA to help other erectors attain accreditation.”
This year, METALCON was appreciative of having Jennifer share her expertise and knowledge as a presenter for a METALCON Live! webinar and for an education session at METALCON 2021 held in Tampa last month.
