The slate of Officers and Directors for 2020 was read at the September Meeting. The slate was read again at the regular October meeting where nominations were called for from the floor.  Seeing none, the nominations were closed. At the November meeting, the Secretary will cast one ballot for the slate as presented, and the Officers and Directors will be sworn in at the December meeting/installation dinner. Come show your support. 

The 2020 slate is as follows: Mike Tabback – President

                                                  Ernie Sisco – Vice President

                                                  Anthony Merlino – Secretary

                                                  Jim Zaconie – Director 

                                                  Bob Cellini – Director

                                                                      Directors terms are for three years.

The October 2nd meeting was a beefsteak affair at Fire Company 2 in Wayne NJ. There was a short presentation regarding Superior Walls and problems with the product when not properly installed, and when standard footing and foundation systems are originally proposed for new construction, but substituted without prior notice to building departments. Another issue is the footings and walls are being installed without footing inspections. Preempt problems by discussing this with contractors before permits are issued. let them know plans are required before a change like this takes place, and let them know that footing inspections for Superior Walls are required just the same as conventional footings and foundations.


Our annual golf outing was held on September 25th at the Farmstead Country Club and deemed to be another huge success. Proceeds are used for our Scholarship fund which helps our children while attending college. Many thanks to Ernie Sisco and his committee for their hard work in making the outing the success it always turns out to be.

Also let us know if there are topics of discussion, or concerns you would like presented at a regular Association meeting. 

To all UCC instructors; make a BPMIA regular meeting a field trip/class for your students. They can network with colleagues and get their names out there for possible future employment and hopefully join our ranks to make our association membership strong. Hand outs should include a membership application.
