This year the MCA of Metropolitan Washington took a slightly different approach to our strategic partnering and planning session. The MCAMW Board of Directors, Negotiations Committee Members, Industry Fund Trustees along with our Union Partners, Steamfitters Local 602 and Plumbers & Gasfitters Local 5 came together to experience a one-of-a-kind Leadership Seminar with the U.S. Army War College in Gettysburg, PA. U.S. Army Retired Col. Karl Bopp, led our group through an in-depth tour of the infamous Battlefields of Gettysburg focusing on leadership tactics used and the importance of effective communication between leaders at that time and its application to business strategies used in the common day work place.
