Founding Infrastructure Masons
Infrastructure Masons (IM) was established to provide infrastructure executives and technical professionals an independent forum to connect, grow and give back. IM was founded by Dean Nelson, a long time Infrastructure executive and industry contributor. Dean believes that by bringing these professionals together they can focus their combined experience and expertise to advance the industry, develop their fellow masons, and empower business and personal use of the infrastructure to better the economy, the environment, and society. iMason was announced to the world on April 2, 2016, through Dean’s LinkedIN post, Are You A Mason?
The first step was to form two Advisory Council’s made up of seasoned executives with global experience and responsibility. First, an End-User Advisory Council. This group is made up of 3rd Degree Master Level Infrastructure Masons who are responsible for some of the largest and progressive infrastructure portfolios in the world. Second, a Partner Advisory Council. Behind every End User is a long list of partners helping them succeed. The Partner Advisory Council was established to ensure the organization has a complete view of the industry and to create effective collaboration between providers and End Users.
