Dear Membership:
On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Industrial Association of Contra Costa County, thank you for your continued membership.
The Industrial Association is sending out a review of 2016 and the accomplishments and challenges we faced as a membership. Now for the first time all our membership dues are on an annual basis along with being able to sponsor one of our forums up front along with your dues. In addition you will see a change in membership fees and categories due to increased operating costs over the past few years. In 2017 we will be setting new goals and strengthening our membership to face State and local challenges ahead. Read full text  ^  PDF (If you are using an iPad or iPhone, you may see only one page.

The Industrial Association’s Annual Golf Event benefiting the Elks Lodge 1811 of Walnut Creek, Purple Pig Project was held on June 3rd at Roddy Ranch Golf Course.  80 players teed off in 90 degree weather to mark our 8th Annual charity event.  A good time was had by all.  Top seeded teams taking 1st and 2nd place went to UPI and Criterion Catalysts.  Low scramble score was 60, 12 under par.  The charity was the real winner.  Purple Pig Project provides therapy services for children with disabilities.  Thank you again to our wonderful volunteers and our many sponsors who championed this event.
—Doug Wolf, tournament co-chair, Ellis Wallenberg, tournament co-chair, Walt Gill IACCC President and Jack Bean EO.

It was another great event hosted by the IACCC and its sponsors and members with the Honorable Contra Costa Board of Supervisors. We thank everyone that attend and we look forward to next year. The Board of Directors and I want to thank our membership and new members on a very successful 2015. We wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
