National – The Metal Construction Association (MCA) welcomed Jeff Henry, MBA CAE, as executive director, effective June 1.
Henry has cultivated a passion and deep respect for associations over his 30-year career in association management. As a Certified Association Executive (CAE), a title earned by fewer than 5% of association professionals, he is a distinguished leader in the association field.
As MCA’s executive director, Henry will lead a team of professionals who will support industry members and elevate the use of metal in construction.
Henry‘s previous roles include managing director of the United States Bowling Congress (USBC) and president of the National Frame Building Association.
MCA’s previous executive director, Karl Hielscher, is retiring. During his tenure over the last four years, Hielscher was instrumental in strengthening the association’s strategic direction, growing overall membership, and developing technical and educational resources for the industry, including bulletins, white papers, and education seminars.
