These are exciting times, people. My friend Jackie has been elected to the Board of Directors for The Construction Association of Michigan. Pretty sweet, considering she's probably one of the youngest women in the profession in Michigan and knowing that there's a plethora of people who immediately draw up their own conclusions about her just upon meeting her. Heaven forbid a young woman has the strength, stamina, professional acumen, knowledge, and skill-set to oversee and manage a project in a heavily male-predominated industry! I think it's pretty damn cool of her. Hip hip hooray!
