MBCEA Mid-Atlantic Elects New Jersey Contractor as President
March 1, 2012

Officials at the Metal Building Contractors & Erectors Association (MBCEA) of Shawnee Mission, Kan., elected Art Hance, president of Hance Construction of Washington, N.J., for a two-year term as president of the Mid-Atlantic Chapter.

"Art's leadership in the industry and at the executive level of MBCEA has been invaluable," says Timothy W. Clark, outgoing president of MBCEA Mid-Atlantic. "We look forward to Art's term as president of MBCEA because he is sure to create innovative, thought-provoking strategies for advancing our industry. Art was invaluable in helping the MBCEA to develop the first federally recognized apprenticeship program in the country devoted exclusively to the metal building industry."

Hance says his immediate goals for his term as president are to strengthen the chapter's financial position to ensure long-term subsidized training for members; develop strategic partnerships with other organizations in order to expand training opportunities; and to promote the goals of MBCEA.

Hance co-founded and sponsors Green-by-Design, a workshop series for architects and engineers started in 2004 that offers American Institute of Architects (AIA) credits to participants for a variety of sustainable building practices. He also co-authored a CES course for architects and engineers specifically on the sustainable design of pre-engineered buildings.
