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 discipline
  •  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. More information available here
