Conceived in 1994 and named after Bill Helms, the first National President of PCEA and one of the original founders, this National award was established to recognize an outstanding PCEA Chapter each year. This award is based on a point system in which various points are earned throughout the year, based on different criteria in five major categories. These categories are Chapter Membership, Chapter Procedures, National Involvement, Education & Scholarships and Computer Technology. Each Chapter entry is to be submitted in a professional manner using a bound notebook, providing backup documentation. The Chapter earning the most points overall is regarded as an exemplary Chapter. The first award was presented to the Blue Ridge Chapter, Roanoke, VA, at the National Convention in May 1995.
2021 Bill Helms Chapter of the Year Award Recipient
“On behalf of the PCEA Triangle Chapter, it is my privilege to close out this roller coaster year of 2020-2021. During this tumultuous year, The Triangle Chapter, volunteered to host the Nation Convention in Asheville NC. We worked diligently through the pandemic to ensure a successful, fun, and informative experience. During the awards dinner, The Triangle Chapter, was presented the Bill Helms - Chapter of the Year trophy.
The Triangle Chapter over the past year has improved the construction industry through education by starting new endowments at our local community college and increased contributions to our scholarships in established foundations. Our Chapter’s membership has remained dedicated to continued education, highlighting local construction trades, and encouraging high ethical standards.
It is my great honor to return as President next year to continue our upwards trajectory. I would like to welcome the new year and the new Board of Directors. With this amazing team we will continue to be the shining example of the Professional Construction Estimator Association. I am confident with your support we will have continued success in this great organization for years to come. I look forward to seeing all of you at our chapter meetings, socials, and fund raisers.”
- Adam Blalock, Triangle Chapter President, Blair Duron
