Announcement: Second Issue of the Council Connect Magazine is Available Now! (70th Anniversary Edition)
The second issue of Council Connect, an official association magazine, is now available! Unfortunately due to the coronavirus pandemic, we didn’t get to celebrate our 70th anniversary through an open house event like we planned. Think of this magazine as the safe way to celebrate 70 years, but then also cross your fingers that we can celebrate in person properly come spring or summer 2021.
The publication has been distributed free of charge to all members, developers, architects, engineers, city planners, and other stakeholders of the Tri-Cities construction industry. Extra copies are available at our office and also viewable digitally online at the following link.
Over the past few months, representatives from DEL Communications Inc. have contacted members for purposes of participating in the publication with advertising. A huge thank you to all 15 advertisers that were able to support this publication! In a challenging year full of financial unpredictability, I’m truly grateful to all of those who continue to make this magazine possible.
-Scott Howard, Executive Director
The inaugural issue of the Council Connect magazine is still available for viewing at the following link.

There were a record number of applicants this year making the selection process very difficult. An official letter has been e-mailed to all applicants.
Our annual golf tournament is typically how we raise money for the Scholarship Program, but it was cancelled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Thanks to the donations from a generous group of companies though, these scholarships will still be fully funded, even during these unprecedented times!
