BLUEPRINT FOR CLOSING THE CONSTRUCTION SKILLS GAP
A Conversation on K-12 Career Tech Education
Washington’s construction industry is in crisis. Company growth is increasingly restricted by skill shortages in the labor market. This stagnation is directly linked to the funding shortfall for hands-on, vocational courses. How can the industry trigger action from policymakers to improve the situation?
Come listen to a stimulating discussion on the skill gap: its size, consequences, and potential solutions. The conversation will be moderated by Colleen McAleer, President of the Washington Business Alliance. Panelists include:
- Shannon Affholter, Executive Director, Master Builders Association
- Nancy Munro, President, Associated General Contractors of Washington
- Jene Jones, Government Relations, League of Education Voters
- Chris Killian, Vice President & General Manager, Turner Construction Seattle
