Registration Opens for 2014 PCCA Convention
PCCA will hold its 69th Annual Convention, March 14-19, 2014, at the Frenchman's Reef & Morning Star Marriott Beach Resort on St. Thomas in the U.S. Virgin Islands. March is peak tourist season in the Caribbean and hotel rooms are limited, so PCCA urges everyone to register as soon as possible.
PCCA Launches Project Manager Academy
Looking to help its members build strong project leaders, PCCA is launching a new educational program in January 2014--the PCCA Project Manager Academy. The PCCA Academy is four days of tough, no-nonsense, total immersion into the business of construction that will fast-forward your people's knowledge, decision-making skills, and leadership abilities. But mostly, they will learn to think and act as if they have a personal stake in every project.
The first PCCA Project Manager Academy is January 13-16 at the Westin Atlanta Airport in Atlanta, Ga. PCCA members have shown great interest in the Academy and space is limited, so you should register your project executives, project managers, and estimators today!
