NUCA of Ohio formed after the Ohio Contractors Association and the National Utility Contractors Association formed separate organizations. There were approximately 25 - 30 members of NUCA National from Ohio that needed a platform to use here in Ohio. After many meetings had occurred between interested parties in the state and representatives from NUCA National, it was determined that a state chapter was feasible. Over 2007 and part of 2008, the non-profit was formed and registered in the State of Ohio. We received our official charter from NUCA National on June 1, 2008.
(L-R) are Ryan Schmitt, Terry Dillon, Larry Fortin, Chuck Dimick, Judd Gleason,
Greg Manhardt, Al Heckmann, Heather Caldwell and Dan East.
Leaders of the newly-formed NUCA of Ohio chapter were presented with an official national association charter during the recent NUCA Washington Summit/Spring Board and Committee Meetings.
Chapter President Judd Gleason of Rudolph/Libbe Companies Inc., Walbridge, Ohio; Chapter Vice President Greg Manhardt of Gradient Corporation in Cincinnati; and Chapter Treasurer Al Heckmann of Heckmann Sales and Leasing in Dayton, Ohio were on hand to receive the charter from Larry Fortin and Chuck Dimick - representatives of another relatively new chapter, NUCA of Las Vegas.
NUCA President Terry Dillon, as well as past and present member and chapter relations committee chairs and NUCA staff members, also participated in the presentation.
NUCA of Ohio is already more than 20 members strong and growing.
