Topics discussed during this inaugural task force meeting included:
Members of what is now the largest HDCI task force broke off into small groups to discuss workforce challenges and develop a list of goals that this group will set out to achieve, all with the objective of improving the image and attraction of skilled workers to the construction industry.
We have a tremendous opportunity to bolster the construction industry by finding solutions to our workforce challenges.
Mike Dunham, CEO, Associated General Contractors of Georgia
