Executive Director's Report

ASA National Convention: Past President Mary Whitlow is a Winner!!   The National office of the American Subcontractors Association recognized our own Mary Whitlow, who was president of ASAMW last year, with the national chapter President of the Year honor at ASA’s SubExcel convention in Denver last week.  The National office chose Mary for her superior leadership, the chapter’s membership growth, innovative programming, legislative successes, and financial stewardship.  Mary is a role model for our local chapter and for all the chapters in the country.  We already knew how great Mary is, now everyone knows!    

ASA of Metro Washington was also the recipient of ASA’s Innovation Award, presented to the ASA Chapter which has developed creative or innovative programs and services that benefit its members.

ASAMW’s PM Fundaments Workshop:  The first Project Managers Course in a number of years is completed.  Under the able leadership of President and Lead Professor Jonathan Mitz, twenty-three Project Managers were elevated to a higher level of achievement.  The Workshop commenced the first week in January and concluded its final session on March 16.  From the outset the students were made aware that the program was not for their entertainment but for serious learning.  The Workshop culminated in a grueling test that took over two hours to complete.  Everyone did extraordinarily well and passed.  ASAMW applauds their commitment and achievement.   Read a complete report of this workshop on the ASAMW Website, including the individuals who completed it and the instructors who lead the sessions.
