It’s that time of year again. The new board was installed in Atlanta during the NEF Annual Meeting. The theme for this year is “You Are the Key to Our Success”. Each member of the board was presented with a NEF logo key.
NEF was established in 1972 by NAWIC and is an IRS 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. With this in mind, we rely on donations to keep educating the construction industry today…and tomorrow. The Foundation appreciates the support that we received over the last year with the fundraisers that were held at local, regional and national events.
I would like to take this time to remind you of the Ladder Club program. All Ladder Club donations are tax deductible! All that is needed to start your Ladder Club account is $25.00. Once you reach $100.00 in donations to your Ladder Club account, you will receive a “Ladder of Success” pin. As you continue to donate, stones will be added to your pin as shown below:
$250.00 – a sapphire will be added to the bottom rung of the ladder
$500.00 – a ruby will be added at the center rung of the ladder
$1,000.00 – a diamond will be added at the top rung of the ladder
$2,000.00 – the 3 stone pin will be placed on a silver disk
$5,000.00 – a 4 stone pin will be placed on a silver disk
$10,000.00 and above – a 4 stone pin will be placed on a silver disk of sapphires
This year, I am challenging everyone who does not have a Ladder Club account to join, and if you have an account, I am challenging you to Climb the Ladder of Success with NEF by climbing to the next level on your ladder. For Fall Conference, all Directors will receive a list of Ladder Club members and the donation amount needed to reach the next level. If at any time you would like to know your balance, please contact Patti at the NEF office. Donations can be made thru the NEF website, nef-edu.org or by using a Ladder Club envelope. Remember, if you want your money to go to your Ladder Club, it MUST be in a Ladder Club envelope.
In closing, help be the Key to NEF’s Success with your tax deductible donation!

NEF enjoyed another successful “Arm’s Length Extravaganza at this year’s 64th NAWIC Annual Conference. The participation by so many attendees proved that everyone loves a chance at winning a fabulous prize!
NEF is funded by donations and sponsorships so your contributions will continue to assist in the efforts to provide quality construction education.
Totals for this year’s event are still being calculated and will be announced next month. Thank you to one and all who participated – your generosity is greatly appreciated!!!
Congratulations to Meghan Brolley – this year’s TV winner!!!
