Let’s Build Together
As carpenters, we build. But more than just structures, we’re crafting our shared future as professionals, as brothers and sisters, and as leaders in our field. While some wait for the future to come to them, the North Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters is taking steps now to proactively shape where we go next. And, just as a building begins with a blueprint, our future begins with a shared vision.
The first step toward the future is, in fact, to look ahead. Today, we’re intentionally looking out at a longer time horizon than we have in the past. We’re envisioning where we want and need to go over the next decade or so. And, we’re looking at how we’ll need to change to continue to thrive.
How do we stay competitive? How do we equip ourselves not just to adapt, but to thrive? What are the things we need to continue and what are the new things we need to focus on?
Looking Further Ahead by asking not only what’s important now but what will be necessary in the coming decade and beyond – painting a picture of the future that captures both heads and hearts. We are an organization focused on tangible outcomes, but also driven by hope and creating opportunities.
Transforming Our Culture to focus on collaboration and teamwork, within the Council, among our members, with contractors and developers, and within the communities where we live and work.
Growing Sustainably as an organization, both by cultivating the new leadership needed for the Council, and by equipping our members with the skills they’ll need to thrive in their jobs. This requires difficult, but necessary, decisions. We do ourselves no favors by avoiding them.
