The Hispanic Contractors Association of Minnesota is accepting new board members.
Time commitment is as follows:
1. We meet once every two months for an hour for our board meetings
2. We conduct OSHA safety training, presentations and work with other construction workforce and safety related organizations. We have a live 30 minute radio show-during the summer twice a month. We have had PSA's with Univision TV. All in all the time is about 10 to 15 hours a month.
We mostly communicate via email, text and phone calls among our board members.
We are looking for someone that is not afraid to speak in public in both English and in Spanish with potential members, sponsors and state senators and representative as well as with government officials such as MN Department of Labor and Industry Commissioner Ken Peterson, MN-OSHA Directors, etc...
The Hispanic Contractors Association of Minnesota (HCA-MN) is in support of equity and non-discrimination construction work conditions in the construction industry. We are an organization that implements good faith efforts to benefit and support union and non-union affiliated organizations that have the best interest in mind of the Hispanic construction community in MN. Our initiatives are not based on union or non-union objectives or issues but are rather based on the Hispanic construction community's well-being and economic growth. Our interest encourages the improvement of the undeserved and underrepresented group's lives and protection of their federal right to have a workplace free of recognized health & safety hazards, standards/non-discrimination in the workplace. The HCA-MN has union affiliated and non-union affiliated contractor members, individual members as well as sponsors, and for that reason we are neither against nor in favor of unions."
