We will have Bonnie Cummings of Hub Insurance speaking at the April meeting, and in light of the state of the OSHA Electronic Recordkeeping regulations, we will focus on how to accurately and completely fill out our OSHA Illness and Injury Logs. Special attention will be give to Reportable vs. Recordable criteria. It is important to understand how to properly account for all incidents, perhaps now more than ever. Even if the legislation is held up, or rejected by the current administration, accurate records help to keep your DART and IR at appropriate levels.
The meeting is from 9:30- 11:30 am, with sponsored lunch immediately following the meeting. Please RSVP for an accurate head-count. Lunch in April will be provided by Fisher Sand & Gravel-NM.

In conjunction with AGC-NM (Building Branch) and in association with ACE Leadership High School , we are gathering resources for our 2nd Annual HEO Rodeo & Career Fair taking place on April 21, 2017. This interactive event is an outreach effort to engage high school students from around the state regarding the plethora of opportunities in our New Mexico construction industries.
There are several ways your company can participate: by volunteering time, giving cash donations, pledging equipment sponsorships, staffing a career fair booth, and more. This year we are seeking to increase interactive participation by upping the number of dynamic stations (such as the mini-excavators and backhoes), as well as challenging the students with hands-on tasks at the career fair booths. Our static-stations will also include the important component of performing pre-trip inspections, to further stimulate student participation and educate participants about the maintenance and upkeep of these valuable construction assets.
Estancia High School has a web design team that has qualified for the National Competition in Orlando, Florida in May! ACNM was approached by Mr. Leonard Chavez (NMDOT-retired, and current ACNM proctor) on behalf of his son, Mr. Daniel Lovato regarding this upcoming event for the Business Professionals of America. Attached is a description of the event, and the ways you may be of assistance for this enterprising young man and his team. Daniel currently a senior at Estancia High School, and plans to attend UNM in the fall, pursuing a degree in Engineering. Please read the attached pdf, and make your contributions to Estancia HS by contacting the chapter director Brenda Tapia, with "Daniel Lovato" as a memo.
We are always seeking NM students with engineering goals at one of our state colleges, and I encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to support one of our own.
