Suben also initiates and manages regularly scheduled monthly “Lunch and Learn” sessions for JE Dunn’s Project Managers, Field Engineers, Superintendents and Forepersons, etc., as offered by different building product suppliers, vendors, trade partners, and related entities.

Hostile work environment harassment has four necessary elements: (1) sexual conduct that is (2) unwelcome, and (3) offensive both subjectively to the recipient and objectively to a “reasonable person,” and (4) the conduct is severe or pervasive (though the Minnesota legislature has proposed legislation that would remove the severe or pervasive requirement).
Each nominee is vetted to assure their commitment to their term of service. I believe knowing your officers and their biographies is important. Reach out to them and share your ideas and concerns!
Last and certainly not least, a special thanks to , as she has prepared the ballots and run the election process for many years. We wish her all the best and hope to see her around from time to time at events. We have a great finish planned for the end of year.
