FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New Chapter of the American Society of Professional Estimators in Richmond, Virginia Chosen to Host the Northeast Regional Meeting and Estimating Academy!
Richmond, Virginia – March 2nd & 3rd 2012
The American Society of Professional Estimators (ASPE), headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, serves construction estimators by providing education, fellowship, and opportunity for professional development.
On November 30, 2011, at their Holiday Gala at the New Kent Winery, ASPE made it official – Richmond, Virginia is now officially Chapter # 82!
It’s been a long time coming. The Richmond group started with one member; Gary Mazzilli in 2007. Membership grew steady through the years by providing Education, Ethics, Standards, Certification, and Fellowship to construction estimators in the Greater Richmond area. The mood was ecstatic when ASPE’s Northeast Regional Governor Greg Williamson presented the first Board of Trustees with the official chapter charter.
On March 2nd & 3rd, the new chapter will host the Northeast Regional Meeting and Estimating Academy.
The Estimating Academy will provide construction estimating classes at The DoubleTree by Hilton downtown Richmond throughout the day on Friday March 2nd. The classes are specifically geared to contractors, engineers, and architects looking to further their cost estimating skills. Estimating Academy seminar topics will include: General Construction Cost Estimating, Site Construction Cost Estimating, Communications Cost Estimating, General Conditions/Overhead and Profit, Technology, and Providing Cost Estimating Services to the State of Virginia.
The Northeast Regional Meeting is a gathering of members of ASPE chapters throughout the Northeast to discuss strategic chapter planning and will be held on Saturday March 3rd also at The DoubleTree. The event will close with a guided tour through the Virginia State Capitol at 2:00 PM on Saturday.
