He is a member of Young Presidents’ Organization (Pittsburgh and Scottsdale chapters), the Duquesne Club, the Penn State Nittany Lion Club and the Jaffa Shriners. He also serves as a Caterpillar AVP Board member.

He sought NTEA Board involvement to offer his insights, business expertise and to give something back to this industry. He envisioned NTEA creating a new approach to engage the younger generation and make them aware of opportunities available in the industry, as well as emphasizing a focus on advanced education with an innovative curriculum designed to encourage continuous learning.

Since being elected to NTEA’s Board in 2018, Ritchey has worked to further Association and industry progress.
