A Tee-rrific Networking Event in Full Swing

It was a hole-in-one kind of night for those in attendance at ABC SEMI’s first Topgolf event in early August.

ABC members stepped up to the tee, which included sipping drinks and making connections over golf. This sold-out event brought members to Auburn Hills to enjoy a social night that was par for the course.

“I am so pleased to see how many people made it out to this event,” said ABC SEMI chairwomen Chris Scott, owner of Paul C. Scott and Sons Plumbing. “Topgolf is a fun location and helps our busy members relax and focus on having some good old fashioned fun.”

New member, Jesse O’Connor, a representative at Tradesmen International, mentioned how easy it was getting to know other ABC members over a mutual love-hate relationship with golf.

“I think everyone here can relate to having an off day when it comes to swinging the club, which immediately allowed me to connect with some folks,” O’Connor said. “I enjoyed coming out here to share some laughs and get to know some of the hard-working members of ABC.”

Also in attendance for the night were ABC member employees joining the ABC Emerging Professionals group. This was a warm introduction for people who work for ABC member companies, but haven’t had the opportunity to interact at networking events before.

“I know my boss is heavily involved in ABC, but I’ve not had the chance to experience all that is ABC before,” said Niall Beere, operations manager at Paul C. Scott and Sons Plumbing. “I have enjoyed talking with owners and managers at other companies, and it makes me excited to start building my own network in the construction industry.”
