Fulfilling a Need for Construction Expertise
With two integral board members retiring from their roles, Independence Association was looking for someone with experience in both construction and financials. As a result, Luke was selected to serve on the board, as well as the organization’s finance subcommittee.
“I fully support their mission and vision, and I’m looking forward to being involved in their efforts in the community. It’s an honor and a privilege to have been selected by an organization that Ouellet Construction has gotten to know well over the past year,” said Luke.
