SC&RA to launch
         Leadership Forum for
         rising industry stars at key
         events in 2017
           The Specialized Carriers & Rigging
         Association (SC&RA) announced that
         they will host a new Leadership Forum
         to engage rising stars in their 20s and
         30s and provide them with the necessary
         tools to leverage their SC&RA member-
         ships for company and career success.
           The Forum will be hosted in conjunc-
         tion with the Crane & Rigging Work-
         shop, a key industry event that occurs
         annually in fall. The Forum is the lat-
         est initiative in  SC&RA’s continuing
         efforts to engage and equip subsequent
         generations of industry leaders.
           SC&RA’s Leadership Forum will run
         on a separate track at the Workshop,
         providing ample time for  participants
         to discuss challenges and opportunities
         with peers, and to learn from members
         who  have successfully  made member-
         ship work for them.
           In addition  to this specialized ses-
         sion,  Forum participants are invited
         to join the Workshop attendees for the
         Governing  Committee meeting and
         Networking reception where they will
         be matched with a mentor. This men-
         tor will introduce them to key SC&RA
         members and help answer questions.
         Participants are then encouraged to
         attend the remainder of the Workshop.
