The Colorado Association of Mechanical and Plumbing Contractors said Tuesday that the trade group has contracted Patricia Silverstein as its chief economist.
CAMPC represents and promotes the state's mechanical, plumbing and HVAC industry. Silverstein will provide economic data to forecast growth and market downturns, as well as workforce projections and training needs.
Silverstein, president of Littleton-based Development Research Partners, is the consulting chief economist for the Metro Denver Economic Development Corp. and the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce.
Silverstein has provided research and economic development support in Colorado and other states, since 1989.
Dave Davia, the association's executive vice president and CEO, said Silverstein's expertise will be invaluable tool to members and the industry.
“At CAMPC, we engage in economic development, workforce training, labor relations and legislative advocacy with one single goal in mind: to create jobs and strengthen the construction industry for the hard-working men and women who through their work define our city’s skylines and are part of the fabric of the business community in Colorado,” Davia said in a statement.
“With Patti’s help, we will provide our members with a valuable snapshot of the construction industry and better prepare them for success in the future.”
Her first study for the Association of Mechanical and Plumbing Contractors will be issued this month, the trade group said in a press release.
