BTEA honors leaders of construction industry.

The Building Trades Employers' Association (BTEA), New York's largest and most diverse construction contractor association, will honor three industry luminaries at its 2007 Annual Leadership Dinner on Thursday, April 19 at Cipriani 42nd Street.

The Leadership Awards are presented to accomplished individuals that have proven themselves as exemplary leaders and mentors that embody the vision, dedication and fortitude to continuously shape the city's skyline.

The 2007 honorees include Arnold Fisher, Senior Partner at Fisher Brothers. Mr. Fisher will be the recipient of the BTEA's Charles Eidlitz Award for Leadership for his untiring work in support of the Center for the Intrepid. The Center for the Intrepid is a new state-of-the-art physical rehabilitation center serving catastrophically wounded soldiers from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Tommy Craig, Senior Vice President at Hines. will be the recipient of the John A. Cavanagh Outstanding Service Award for his contributions to the economic vitality of New York City and its unionized construction industry through his development work on projects such as the Museum of Modern Art and One Jackson Square among others.

The Real Estate Board of New York (REBNY), one of the city's oldest and most prestigious real estate trade organizations, will be honored with the BTEA's Alfred Gerosa Lifetime Achievement Award. REBNY has been designated to receive this award because of its longstanding support of the BTEA's family of union construction contractors in development projects throughout New York City. Steven Spinola, REBNY president, will accept the award on behalf of the organization.

"The annual dinner is one of the most anticipated events of the year, and it is a chance for us to honor individuals and organizations who have made extraordinary contributions to the industry and to this great city,'" said Louis J. Coletti, president and CEO of the BTEA.

Last year's dinner drew 750 attendees from all facets of the City's business and political circles.
