The Master Steam Fitters Association of Washington, DC started with just six members and after multiple name changes arrived at the present name – Mechanical Contractors Association of Metropolitan Washington.
The MCAMW has played a significant role in the advancement of the construction industry in the Mid-Atlantic region. Since the centennial celebration in 1989, the association has continued to serve the needs of its members. In 1998, the MCAMW Service Contractors Bureau was established to focus on the service industry and, in 2008, the Plumbing Contractors’ Bureau joined. Two student chapters were established at the University of Maryland and Virginia Tech to recruit personnel. Additionally, the Young Leaders group was created to help young industry executives gain professional experience thru educational and networking events.
Today, MCAMW’s commitment to education and training continues at the forefront of its mission. From energy efficiency to environmental sensitivity, technology to training, the associations’ focus remains steadfast on behalf of its members.
