The Controlled Environment Building Association (CEBA) announces its new Board of Directors roster for 2024. Board members are volunteer leaders and responsible for governing, developing policy, and setting a course for the future. The board focuses on advancing the mission, vision, and strategic goals of the association.
Per the by-laws, the CEBA Board of Directors is made up of three categories of members – General, Associate, and Affiliate. The General category includes Design, Build, and Thermal Contractors. The Associate category includes suppliers and subcontractors, and Affiliate is for end-users – warehouses, food companies and other operators of controlled environment buildings. These categories were established to ensure all sectors of the controlled environment building industry were represented in leadership positions and help shape the future of the association.
 The CEBA Board voted to elect Sam Tippmann from TiCold, as their 2024 chairman; Scott Guimond from Fisher Construction Group as vice chairman; and Michael Jones from Primus as treasurer. Marko Dzeletovich of Coldbox Builders will serve as the immediate past chairman.
