Building and Construction Trades Council elects new pres.

Thomas Misciagna has been elected president of the Bergen County Building and Construction Trades Council, AFL-CIO, a non-profit organization dedicated to serving as a liaison between 20 building and construction trades and commercial, residential and industrial developers throughout the county.

The Council represents more than 15,000 skilled workers, including the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 164 in Paramus, where Misciagna serves as assistant business manager.

"Thom Misciagna possesses an unsurpassed depth of industry knowledge and will successfully balance the goals of skilled labor, while partnering with contractor management, public officials and private developers," said Richard Dressel, business manager for Local 164.

"His commitment to the construction industry as a whole will be of tremendous benefit to the building and construction trades as well as the general public."

A member of IBEW Local 164 since 1959, Misciagna completed his electrical training, became a journeyman and was appointed to the executive board in 1968.

Following a four-year term as president, the Hillsdale, New Jersey resident spearheaded establishment of the Local's telecommunications division in 1977.

Under his leadership, the division has grown from the original 12 members to more than 1,300 today.

Misciagna also serves as director of the Youth Transition to Work (YTTW) grant program, a state-funded telecommunications pre-apprenticeship program for high school students, and has overseen the development of a new accelerated baccalaureate program with a concentration in telecommunications studies offered by Local 164 in conjunction with the National Labor College in Silver Spring, Md.

"I look forward to my tenure as president of the Bergen County Building and Construction Trades Council and advancing the quality of construction projects throughout our area," said Misciagna, who formerly served as vice president of the council. "This is an exciting time in Bergen County with regard to construction, and I am pleased with this opportunity to contribute toward the area's continued growth."
