Help Build a Better Future for Construction

VOTE November 5th Election Day

Tuesday, November 5, 2013 is Election Day in Texas. It is well known that the rest of the United States admires Texas for our quality of life and pro-business atmosphere. By voting YES for passage of the Texas Constitutional Amendments on the state ballot and YES for the $950 million in municipal and school bond construction programs within our construction marketplace will ensure that TEXO members will continue to prosper.

I encourage you to tell your family, friends, co-workers and employees about how important it is to vote "yes" specifically for State Proposition 6 which will assure that our state takes the proper steps forward in establishing the State Water Implementation Fund for Texas. Excellent information is available by going to H204TEXAS website.

Interested in potential construction work? Encourage your employees and those you know to vote "YES" if one of these twenty three bond programs are on their ballot.

These elections tend to be very low voter turn-out so each and every ones vote is incredibly important.


TEXO is pleased to welcome Meloni McDaniel as the new Director of Member Programs & Services. In this role, Meloni will lead the Association’s planning, administration and execution of all member professional development, networking and special events.

Meloni comes to TEXO from The Beck Group where she worked since 2005. Her experience includes architecture, construction and business development with an emphasis on the federal market for the last five years. She completed undergraduate studies at The University of Oklahoma majoring in Architecture with a minor in Construction Management.

Please join TEXO in welcoming Meloni!
