NEW ORLEANS - Feb. 28, 2014 - PRLog -- On Thursday, February 20th, the National Association of Minority Contractors (NAMC) presented Joseph Givens, Executive Director of the Isaiah Institute of New Orleans, with a contribution during their Industry Luncheon. The luncheon was a notable event for the NAMC Mid-Winter Board of Directors Meeting, held February 19-21 at the Hyatt French Quarters in New Orleans, Louisiana. The luncheon, themed “New Directions, Energy Opportunities,” hosted many influential members of the industry, including Henry Shields, Director of Finance for Corporate Sustainability, MGM Resorts International, as guest speaker.

NAMC’s contribution to the Isaiah Institute of New Orleans was a community support initiative.  NAMC is deeply rooted in advocacy and education with the goal of promoting the economic and legal interests of minority contracting firms. The contribution to the Isaiah Institute is seen as an extension of this philosophy and is an effort to promote change in the New Orleans area to impact community viability.

Joseph Givens is a political and community organizer with over 40 years of organizing experience, half of those years dedicated to developing the civic capacity of churches and communities of faith. Since Hurricane Katrina in 2005 he has been a consultant to the Advancement Project, the Atlanta Regional Council of Churches and the Samuel Dewitt Proctor Conference in their efforts to assist in recovery efforts in New Orleans.

The Isaiah Institute develops young leaders by creating a culture of kindness, empathy and respect for God and His creation and empowerment. Their focus is to also develop workforce skills to encourage young people by promoting and supporting programs that create, within them, a sense of worth and respect for their own lives and the lives of others.

The National Association of Minority Contractors (NAMC) was founded in 1969 to advance the interests and growth of minority contractors, who have been historically underutilized on public and private construction projects throughout the country.
