April 26, 2016 (FPRC) – CLEVELAND, OHIO – www.mbma.com: The Metal Building Manufacturers Association (MBMA) announced they approved an additional membership category that welcomes architecture and engineering firms into its ranks. This decision adds a new element of expertise and leadership to the association’s existing network of professional metal building system manufacturers and suppliers.
“Architects and engineers are specifying metal buildings for all sorts of new uses to satisfy their customer needs, and we value their input into MBMA’s future direction,” says Brad Curtis, chair of MBMA. “Contributions from architecture and engineering experts will provide building fabricators and suppliers with much needed feedback about the products they produce to meet end users’ demands. In turn, member A/E firms will gain access to the knowledge and tools the building manufacturers and their suppliers have developed, in addition to networking with these companies.”
Professional A/E Firm partners will use MBMA’s networking and educational opportunities to leverage the design-build process more effectively to gain an advantage in the marketplace. Networking opportunities include interactions with industry engineers, CEOs, and other key decision-makers. Additional MBMA member benefits include attendance at association meetings, participation on committees, access to information, unique continuing education opportunities, networking, and publication discounts.
MBMA’s Associate and A/E members will also receive industry news, updates and cutting-edge industry statistics that are only available through MBMA. These vital reports help professionals analyze the marketplace for better strategic business planning.
Efforts made by MBMA’s members serve to educate and inspire the greater building community. To learn more about membership opportunities, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
