SRBX & CIEF Response to Coronavirus
The evolving circumstances and health precautions around coronavirus (COVID-19) has compelled the Sacramento Regional Builders Exchange (SRBX) and our not-for-profit Construction Industry Education Foundation (CIEF) to take the following steps in the interest of the health and welfare of our members and staff.
Effective today, the majority of SRBX and CIEF staff will be working remotely and our main office will remain open with limited staffing. All staff are available by phone/email and are fully committed to serving our members and industry at this time.
All SRBX/CIEF Board and Committee Meetings will take place via videoconferencing or conference call. Additional details regarding already scheduled meetings will be sent out to those individuals participating in these meetings.
The SRBX Plan room is fully operational and we encourage SRBX members to review the more than 1,600 plans currently available online. Staff is available to assist you with any needs.
The NEXT St. Patrick's Day Brewfest which was scheduled for tomorrow, March 17th, has been rescheduled for a date to be determined. Information regarding the rescheduled date will be sent out when available.
The SRBX Safety Expo scheduled for April 8th and 9th at Cosumnes River College will be rescheduled. Information regarding the rescheduled date will be sent out when available.
The CIEF Southern California Design Build Competition scheduled for April 18th and 19th at Reliable Wholesale Lumber has been cancelled. While every effort was made to look at alternative dates for this competition, we do not feel that we could provide the quality needed for this event after students return to schools prior to the end of the school year. We will be providing information about the 2021 Southern California Design Build Competition this summer.
The CIEF Northern California Design Build Competition scheduled for May 6th and 7th at Cosumnes River College will be rescheduled. New dates will be determined after students return to campus and revised spring schedules are available.
The CIEF Clay Shoot scheduled for May 15th at Camanche Hills Hunting Preserve and the SRBX Spring Golf Outing scheduled on May 29th at Ancil Hoffman Golf Course fall outside the current gathering recommendations by the Center for Disease Control and the California Department of Public Health. As such, both are planned to be held as scheduled. Should the need to postpone these events occur, this information will be communicated to all sponsors and registrants.
SRBX and CIEF take your health and safety very seriously. We will continue to monitor announcements and reports from state and national health agencies for additional directives and will take appropriate measures to continue to protect the health of our members, event guests, visitors, and staff. Up to date information can be found online at www.srbx.org .
As always, thank you for your membership and support of SRBX and CIEF.
