The COAA Workforce Development Committee recognizes the need to develop various education programs and recruitment efforts that target the current and future construction industry workforce. One place Owners can start is raising awareness.

“If you polled a group of parents of middle or high schoolers, you would find very few, if any, who wanted — or would even allow — their children to consider pursuing the construction trades as a profession. We have to show them, along with the rest of this great nation, that the construction industry is solid and can provide both men and women with respected and rewarding careers.” Kevin Lewis, PE, COAA Past President, Loudoun County Public Schools.
