DART Hosts AACATX Second Quarter General Membership Meeting
AACATX held its Second Quarter General Membership Meeting at Sponsoring Partner, DART Headquarters in Dallas on May 15, 2014. Joining us was USPAACC -SW , based in Arlington, Texas.
Together we celebrated Asian Pacific Heritage Month with a warm welcome from DART, Carmen Garcia, greetings by AACATX President, Kathy Dress, and Grace McDermott, President of USAACC -SW. Carmen presented how to do business with DART - and pointed out that while it has done most of the planned construction with the Orange Line I-3 directly to DFW Airport, the time has come, with millions budgeted to maintain the longest fast rail in America. Such service contracts are even more suitable for minority and small business enterprises.
A delicious 8 course Chinese lunch buffet was served catered by Master Wok. It was followed by a most authentic Chinese Folk Dance performed by Grace Dan Liu, Professional Dance Instructor of Liu Dan Culture & Arts Center in Plano.
There was ample time for members of all three organizations to network and before long business deals were agreed on between the members and strategic partnering was encouraged.
The AACATX Third Quarter General Membership Meeting will be held on September 18, 2014 at the Kasra Restaurant on Arapaho, in Richardson. It is the AACATX CONSTELLATION AWARDS LUNCHEON BY INVITATION ONLY TO AACATX MEMBERS AND GUESTS. (Free to all paid members ) This year a new award has been added given in the name of the Robert Hsueh/ DFW Airport Orion Award for the best Asian entrepreneur in construction of the year.
- Three Asian companies participated in the NTTA held graduation program for their second group of mentors and protégée in the NTTA Mentor Program named ROAD Program. These companies are:
A P Engineering Consultant, Inc.
PDI Green Technology / Pacific Dynasty International Inc.
These companies are part of eleven teams within the Road Program that paired 11 already contracted NTTA large companies with 11 DMWBE companies in their unique mentor program.
The resulting success stories are exemplified by the statements made below by A P Engineering Consultant Inc.
NTTA ROAD program is unique in that the agency invites both the mentors and protégées. Other agencies only approve the pair after the MWBE company finds its own mentor.
