CATT, the Contractors Association of Truckee Tahoe, was formed in 1998 by a few contractors in the Truckee-Tahoe region. These founders had two priorities: address the impacts of local agencies on the building trade and improve the overall professionalism within the industry. Through discussions, this small group realized that many other contractors were feeling the same frustrations. The Articles of Incorporation were signed June 24, 1998 by Mitch Clarin, Embree Cross, Pat Flora, Robert Gelso, Richard Loverde, Brian Marsh, Ted Owens, Eric Reamer, Dennis Schlumpf, and Matt Williams. The corporation was chartered as a regional, non-profit trade association and received recognition as a tax-exempt organization. Governing Bylaws established a 15-member board and that Board quickly began soliciting membership support. In July of 1998, the first staff person was hired and in October 1998, the first golf tournament fundraiser was held. Also in 1998, CATT absorbed the Tahoe Independent Contractors Association of North Tahoe.
