On March 9th, Paul Capurso was officially sworn in to his position as President of the District Council of Carpenters.
Paul joined the District Council 1987 and from the beginning, he wanted to be the best of the best by working his way from Journeymen to Lead Carpenter, Foreman, General Foreman, and to a Super for a Interior Systems Contractor. In 1996, looking to become more involved, Paul became a part-time instructor teaching Apprentices and Journeymen at the Carpenters Training Center while continuing to work in the field as a Foreman.
In 2000, Paul became a Delegate for Local 157, a Financial Secretary in 2006, and a Business Representative in 2008. Paul was promoted to Lead Regional Manager of Manhattan and Queens Rep Centers in 2011, where he currently serves. In 2011, he became a Trustee to the Benefit Funds.
Paul committed himself to a path of lifelong learning and he sought out opportunities to excel and grow into more leadership positions. He brings a wealth of tried and true experience from every level of his union membership. Paul has been nothing short of competent and eager to help the Council succeed.
