IACSC Elects New Officers and Board Members

New officers and board members of the International Association for Cold Storage Construction (IACSC) were elected at the IACSC Conference & Expo, held November 6-8, 2014 in Boca Raton, Florida. This year’s conference saw a record number of attendees, with just over 250 signed up.

Erik Gunderson, Executive Vice President, Primus Builders, was elected as the 2014-2015 Chair of IACSC. Brian King of A M King Construction was elected as Vice Chairman. Tim Nguyen of ESI Group was elected Treasurer.

GCCA President and CEO Corey Rosenbusch commented, “Erik has contributed an enormous amount to the body of knowledge in construction contracting and shown strong leadership in IACSC. We congratulate him on becoming Chair and know he will do an outstanding job this coming year.

Board members re-elected to three-year terms through 2017 include Janet Madden Charles of Envirotech Construction, Steve Mauro of Kingspan Insulated Panels, and Charles Woolley of Coldroom Systems.

Newly elected board members, who will also serve through 2017, include Dan Powers of Fisher & Sons and Bob West of Ryan Companies.

“I am honored to serve as IACSC Chair this year, and I want to build on our successful education and training programs, technical resources and guidelines, and networking opportunities that are helping cold storage contractors succeed,” Gunderson said. “It used to be that much of what we knew was passed on to us from a mentor or learned through experience. While these sources of knowledge are still important, it is important that IACSC continue to build formal education programs and resources to establish best practices and help train the next generation of refrigeration engineers and cold storage contractors.”

The association also recognized Wade Hudson, outgoing IACSC Chairman for all his leadership and guidance over the past year.

The 2015 IACSC Conference & Expo will be held November 5-7 at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.
