Poynter’s Joseph Lansdell Elected as National President of SMACNA
Joseph Lansdell, president of Poynter, Greenwood, Ind., was elected by the Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors’ National Association’s (SMACNA) Board of Directors to serve as president. His year-long term in office began October 19, 2016 at the close of SMACNA’s 73rd Annual Convention.
“In 2017, SMACNA will revisit its strategic plan,” Lansdell said. “It will take into consideration the needs of owners, their changing priorities, and expectations in designing and constructing flexible facilities that adjust to their future needs.
“With companies required to shift and retool their operations on the fly, constructing a building has now become part of the owner’s strategic plan, not a separate entity as in the past,” he noted. “This change presents opportunities for SMACNA contractors and their skilled workforce.”
Lansdell has been actively involved in the sheet metal industry for two decades and served on SMACNA’s Board of Directors from 2007 to 2011. He currently serves as a SFUA Article X panelist, vice-chair of the Budget and Finance Committee, and on the National Pension Fund. He is also on the Investment Committee.
Lansdell is a graduate of Purdue University at Indianapolis with a degree in mechanical engineering technology and a life-long Indiana resident.
SMACNA, an international trade association representing 3,500 contributing contractor firms, is a leader in promoting quality and excellence in the sheet metal and air conditioning industry.
