New beginnings

DALLAS/FORT WORTH – The ringing in of 2017 brought new beginnings for both Pete Snider and Carrie Edomm.

    Snider kicked off the New Year with his retirement as executive director of the Subcontractors Association of the Metroplex (SAM). Snider, who was one of SAM’s three founding members in 1991, served as executive director for the past five years and was active on the association’s board for more than two decades. With his guidance, SAM has expanded to nearly 70 members. The retirement is sort of a second one for Snider, who hung up his hat as owner of Alco Glass in 2011.
    “Time goes by very fast; it really does,” Snider says of his involvement in SAM. “The most pride [I have from my time with SAM] is seeing the growth and seeing subcontractors getting involved. The beauty of all of this is all of the trades coming together. We’re building up enough to where we’re making an impact on the industry.”
    Snider’s contributions were honored at the monthly SAM meeting, held Jan. 5 at Dallas’ MCM Eleganté. Members celebrated Snider with a toast, a good-natured “roast” and fajita dinner. He says he looks forward to traveling with his wife and devoting more time to Spectacular Senior Follies, a “Zeigfeld Follies Style musical theater review with singers and dancers 55 and older.”
    Edomm, who has served as the association’s treasurer for the last two years, is assuming the role of SAM’s executive director. Edomm, who works for Astro Sheet Metal, is a second-generation SAM leader and is following in her father’s footsteps as a SAM board member. –mjm
