LETTERFROMTHEEDITOR Teamwork Makes The Dream Work MARBELLA MILLER EDITOR IN CHIEF, O&MM FABRICATOR SENIOR CONTENT STRATEGIST, NAYLOR ASSOCIATION SOLUTIONS once said: "Great things in business are never done by one person. They're done by a team of people." The team who put together this year's METALfab convention worked hard to make it successful. The team from the NOMMA Education Foundation and the Education Committee who successfully put together the education classes for METALfab did an outstanding job. The team from The Heirloom Companies who hosted a full day of presentations and seminars were generous with their time and shared valuable information with attendees. The NOMMA members who recently won awards for their contributions to the industry, outstanding volunteerism, outstanding contributions to education, and outstanding membership development all gave their time and energy for a good cause. AS THE LATE STEVE JOBS These individuals know that by doing their part, they are indirectly helping their NOMMA family as well helping the industry as a whole. NOMMA's 2016-2017 membership drive has begun, and NOMMA members are encouraged to not only sponsor a member but to also get the word out about the value in their membership. Mark O'Malley, a longtime NOMMA member, shared the reasons why he considers his membership to NOMMA as "priceless" on NOMMA's ListServ. "How much value you get is up to you. Get involved, ask and answer questions, attend chapter meetings, use the ListServ, attend METALfab, and I will promise you that you will not be disappointed," he writes. If you haven't already read his testimony on NOMMA's blog, you can read it on pages 13, 15, and 17 of this issue. Great things in business are never done by one person. They're done by a team of people. - Steve Jobs In addition to a webinar hosted in late April by association guru Ed Rigsbee on how to recruit members and relay membership value, NOMMA also launched its new online Career Center. This new feature will help the industry find and hire talented workers. You can read more about this new resource on page 12. From invaluable education sessions, ongoing membership drives, launching a new online Career Center, the ongoing contributions from its members and so much more, NOMMA is a big team player in helping this industry thrive. While attending METALfab this past March, I was able to see firsthand the camaraderie, intelligence, work ethic, creativity, and talent from the NOMMA members who attended the trade show. Aside from the incredible projects entered into the Top Job Award contest, I was blown away with the warmth and welcome I felt as a first time attendee. If you aren't already a NOMMA member and you want to be part of a team that continually does their part to help the industry flourish, I encourage you to consider joining. I don't think you'll regret it. Until next time, Marbella HOW TO STAY CONNECTED! Facebook "f " Logo CMYK / .eps Facebook "f " Logo CMYK / .eps Find us on Facebook!
