We were putting together some historical data for a few legacy donations recently and the numbers are really interesting.  Founded in 2003, the HBAI Educational Corporation has awarded 140 scholarships amounting to $135,750 to students entering the building trades.  Very impressive!  If you would like any assistance in planning your legacy gifts, please contact Jay Iverson.  The upper left photo was one of our first recipients, Michael Kramer from Earling, IA.
Looking for New Employees?
With our full attention focused on workforce development, we’re oftentimes approached by parents and interested skilled trades workers about where they or their offspring should look for a job.  We immediately say “nearly every one of our member companies are looking for workers” – but let’s qualify that a bit.  If you are truly in the market for employees, please email HBAI Executive Officer Jay Iverson if you would like for your name to be offered to these individuals.  We’re talking higher quality, committed, and potentially great employee material.  It happens several times per month and we’re happy to make the introductions.
