Annual Meeting Awards

posted on 01.12.2021

On January 13, 2021, the MBEX 2021 Annual Meeting will feature an awards program that highlights special recognition awards presented to MBEX member companies and volunteers. The awards allow us to focus a spotlight on individuals who go the extra mile to make outstanding contributions to MBEX. The MBEX Volunteer of the Year Award is presented each year to an individual who has set the highest standards for volunteer service, inspired others to volunteer and worked tirelessly to further the mission of MBEX. The Distinguished Member of the Year Award honors an individual who has devoted his or her entire working life to the construction industry, the community and to the Minnesota Builders Exchange. Both award recipients are selected in October by the MBEX Awards Committee from a list of candidates recommended by MBEX past presidents, officers, board members, staff and members.

The staff of the Minnesota Builders Exchange takes great pride in concise reporting within the industry. However, please keep in mind that not every project reported on at the exchange will be physically or electronically available on the first report date. Many members have noticed, “not available in plan room” as the bin for some projects. While the project was not received at MBEX on the original report date, take a moment to click on the project title and look at the notes within the details page. The notes will clarify the actions taken by our Plans in Progress reporter in regards to obtaining the plans/specs. Projects not available in the plan room on first report dates may give you a heads up on what's coming to MBEX soon, or represent project leads…projects that won't be available at MBEX, but offer you enough information to track down the project on your own.
