A Note from THE

CATT Calendar


(All meetings at the CATT office unless otherwise noted)


he results are in from the CATT Board of Directors election. CATT is happy to welcome Rich Loverde, Loverde Builders, Ken Foster, K.B. Foster Civil Engineering, and Josh Root, Root of Design Electric, back to the Board. As well, we welcome a new face to the board. Ryan Swenson with Simpson Strong-Tie is the newest addition to the Board of Directors. Ryan is no stranger to CATT; he sits on most sub committees and helps with every event CATT hosts. Ryan will be a great addition to the board and we are excited to welcome him. The Christmas Holiday Party is shaping up to be one of the best ever. I hope everyone has their tickets already because seats are filling up fast. Thank you to BMD and Marvin for sponsoring the event. At the CATT office there are many day to day operations. One of the biggest jobs is lobbying for contractors at the various agencies around Lake Tahoe and Truckee. From time to time there is a need to hire an attorney or a consultant to help in our efforts of lobbying for contractors. This year we are setting up a legal defense fund to pay for the attorneys or consultants that we hire. If you would like to help by giving money, please contact the CATT office or look for the information that is with your renewal notice. Michael Forshee, President
