“The National Association of Minority Contractors has seen presidents come and go with no real measurable outcomes. Jamaican native and Minneapolis resident Jerry Steele seeks to turn the tables of the NAMC-UM into a results driven organization representing Minnesota’s minority contractors.”
by Donald W.R. Allen, II – Editor in Chief/IBNN NEWS Exclusive Report
Minneapolis, MN (IBNN NEWS/Business News/March 13, 2012)…In breaking news, Jerry Steele has been named the president of the NAMC-UM chapter in Minnesota-Upper Midwest.
Steele told IBNN NEWS in an exclusive interview, “The NAMC-UM has had access, now we must create a foundation. My goal is to bring the NAMC back as a force to address contract compliance, assistance for local minority contractors and to create a top-of-mind awareness campaign for the organization.”
Steele, the CEO of Enviro-Tech, a Green Construction company is on the cutting edge of technology as it pertains to affordable “green” construction.
In IBNN’s opinion, the National Association of Minority Contractors – Upper Midwest has been overlooked by agencies like the Minneapolis Foundation who specifically wrote in a grant requirement to Urban Homeworks which said make sure the NAMC is involved in the 2011 tornado recovery work. There has been no report issued about the outcome.
The always-diplomatic Jerry Steele refused comment on the situation.
MnDOT – here comes the NAMC-UM.
