BPCA teams up with CDI and NYSERDA to support veterans
The Building Performance Contractors Association (BPCA) and the
Cooperative Development Institute (CDI) have formed a partnership to create
jobs for returning veterans through the development of cooperative
worker-owned business that perform energy efficiency remodeling services.
Veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan indicate they have difficulty
re-integrating back into the workforce and adjusting to a life that is
devoid of mission and teamwork. And meanwhile, BPCA’s mission of energy
efficiency needs the dedication that veterans bring. Veterans are perfect
for working in the building performance industry.
- They are used to working in teams
- They are accustomed to using a combination of mind, body, and
technology to get things done
- They are familiar with a high level of coordination and
- They are not easily deterred by adverse conditions (eg: the
attic of a 140-year-old building)
In our experience, most organizations that purport to help veterans are
just out to generate funding. BPCA invites NY veterans to plug in and prove
that this effort is not one of those.
