Workforce Development Committee:
The residential construction industry is facing a labor crisis; labor is too hard to find and increasingly expensive. The Workforce Development Committee works on initiatives to recruit a talent pool. In November 2018, it launched the first Student Construction Conference with more than 600 students from five local public-school systems for a hands-on learning experience with more than 30 builders and trades in the association. The Workforce Development Committee meets on the third Thursday of every month at 8:30 a.m. in HBAR.
