Mountain States Leadership Council

About the Council

The MSLBMDA’s Mountain States Leadership Council​ is the driving force behind many of the activities and services we offer our members in the Mountain States. Each year the Council organizes the MSLBMDA’s Bowling Tournament, the summer Golf Tournament that now benefits the newly-launched Careers in Construction website (gobuildco.com). This resource will be the nerve center for a region-wide multimedia campaign encouraging teens to sign up for shop class and learn about opportunities in trade careers, while also serving as a job placement platform for students and employers looking for skilled trade employees. The campaign also aims to expand the program into new schools while winning more support from local construction, lumberyards, distributors and industry trade businesses. In 2019-2020, Denver Public Schools and Adams County Schools have signed on to teach the CIC curriculum, as we expand this program in the Denver Metro Area. It is a win for our kids, and a win for our industry!

The Mountain States Leadership Council also sponsors a young person with special needs by providing a scholarship to the Easter Seals summer program at Rocky Mountain Village. We are always looking for volunteers willing to serve on the CO Council – especially those from the retail sector. Our supplier members have really stepped up and currently make up the biggest percentage of members on our Council.

If you have an interest in serving the industry and the association through service on the Council, please contact the MSLBMDA or any of our CO Council members. We can answer any questions you have about the amount of time it takes or anything else relating to service on the Council. It is a great way to get more involved and make a real difference in the association, the industry, and the community!
