    What Employers Should Know

“I have found the topics discussed at the ABC’s Regional meetings to be relevant to issues facing contractors of today. The meetings are located in areas where I can schedule to attend. As an example, I have used the knowledge gained from the ABC meetings in our management team meetings to better manage and retain our co-workers.”
– Thomas W. Bertolet, Bertolet Construction Corporation

“I have attended many of the regional meetings in Harrisburg, Wyomissing, and Lancaster, and have found them as a means and opportunity to network with new and current members, be educated on relevant topics that affect businesses today, all in a concise and timely manner (once every other month for an hour, beginning at 7:30 a.m.) that doesn’t prevent me from missing valuable time during my business day. I would recommend this forum to all current and prospective members in the region as it allows you to create new business relationships and learn valuable information that affects your businesses.”
 David H. Oblender, CRIS, Engle-Hambright & Davies, Inc.

“The regularly scheduled and “close to you” networking opportunities never hurt and, by keeping to the roughly one hour schedules, these AM meetings are a great way to start a productive day without sacrificing too much.”
 – Eric Fleming, WESCO Distribution

“I thoroughly enjoy the whole premise of the “Wake-up Call” meetings. They are early in the morning, so as not to break up or interrupt the day. The topics I have seen have all been relevant and worthwhile, the venues have been convenient to my location, and the times have been condensed to where I obtain great information but can still make it into my office by 9 am.”
– Tony Forlizzi, Sheet Metal Specialists, LLC
