Before a full house of guests, dignitaries and colleagues ECA’s 31st Annual DIG Awards celebrated Pat Duffy of Monteleone & McCrory, and the late Ed Vadnais of Edmond J. Vadnais Corp. for their careers of Dignity, Integrity and Generosity – DIG – in the construction industry.

This year’s awardees were honored for their lifetime accomplishments in their profession and for their service to the members of the ECA. Attendees paid tribute to this year’s recipients for their milestone achievements.

Present to acknowledge this year’s recipients at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in downtown Los Angeles were a host of dignitaries from the industry and community.

Proceeds from the ECADIG Award fund the association’s Les Weed Memorial Scholarship. Each year for nearly three decades now the ECA Scholarship Committee has assisted deserving men and women with their higher educational goals, inspired by late ECA President, Les Weed.

Since its inception in 1990 the ECA Scholarship Committee has awarded $218,000 to 115 recipients to further academics in a variety of disciplines. Thank you all who attended.
