Member Price: FREE| Non Member Price: $79

 

Construction contractors across the nation face worker shortages and an insufficient workforce development pipeline. How are these shortages affecting the industry? How are contractors dealing with shortages? Where are they finding workers for today? How are they developing workers for tomorrow? How may technology disrupt the construction workforce? What is the federal government doing to help address (or worsen) these problems?

During this WebEd, registrants will hear answers to these questions from AGC’s CEO Stephen Sandherr, Chief Economist Ken Simonson, Vice President of Public Affairs and Strategic Initiatives Brian Turmail, Senior Director of Congressional Relations for Labor, Human Resources and Safety, James Young, and Autodesk’s Head of Construction Integrated Marketing Allison Scott as they:

• Review the results of the 2019 AGC Construction Workforce Survey supported by Autodesk, detailing national, regional and state workforce data;
• Highlight workforce development initiatives the association, chapters and contractors are using to meet their labor needs;
• Discuss several new technologies that may change aspects of construction delivery for some markets; and
• Evaluate recently enacted and pending federal legislation and regulations concerning career and technical education, immigration reform, and apprenticeships.
