Letter from the CATT President
Dear CATT Member:
Happy New Year from the Contractors Association of Truckee Tahoe (CATT). I am pleased to be representing you as Board President for another year.
Thank you for your support in 2021 – another challenging year for the building industry. There has never been a time where we have relied on the advocacy efforts of CATT staff more than this past year as we work through a continually changing work and business environment.
I am proud to report that in 2021, CATT launched the first “Jay Lebel Scholarship” fund for trades scholarships. On the advocacy front: CATT solidified the government affairs staff including Patrick Flora and Natalie Yanish to advocate for a more builder friendly environment as local governments enact regulations. A key issue was mobilizing efforts to address the Town of Truckee permitting delays. I also would like to invite all members to join us for the February 7th Annual Membership meeting at 5pm (look for upcoming CATT communications for invitations and meeting details).
For 2022, CATT goals include: growing advocacy, delivering our first ever trades scholarships, continued membership growth in South Lake Tahoe, and increasing membership trainings and benefits. We are excited to be close to completion on the 4-year Community Project at the Downtown Truckee Park under the leadership of the Executive Director, Kellie Cutler.
This year is an election year and the CATT Political Action Committee (CATTPAC) will be hard at work identifying races and candidates that best represent our values and vision for our community. Consider a donation to CATTPAC in your membership renewal. Building our stakeholder network and political relationships is critical to our advocacy efforts.
As we move into 2022, we are hopeful and positive for another year of growth and prosperity. Your membership support drives our efforts with the nonprofit mission of promoting a better business environment for our industry.
