On January 31, 2019 Laland Baptiste had the privilege of being one of the sponsors for the Working Together to Advance Opportunities for M/WBEs in the New York Construction Market breakfast. Organized by our very own, Robert Baptiste, the CMAA Metro New York/New Jersey Director of CODE, this event promoted increasing the use of M/WBE’s in the Construction Management profession. Attendees heard from several agencies including the New York City Department of Design and Construction (NYCDDC), The Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY), New York City Department of Parks & Recreation, and The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ).

During the event, attendees also heard from two featured MWBE firms, Mildred Tolentino of M-TO-PROS and Eric Hirani of Infinite Consulting Corp. regarding the services they provide to the AEC Industry.
