Member Meeting – Workforce Presentation

March 5

WORKFORCE PRSENTATION

NW College of Construction 8111 NE Holman St, Portland, OR 97218

Where is the HVAC industry going to find people to man its workforce today, tomorrow and in the future.

Our workforce is aging and journeymen are retiring. When they walk out the door for the last time, they take with them the accumulated knowledge, learned over their lifetime.

So let me direct this question to the following:

HVAC Contractors where are you going to get needed employees to replace those leaving the industry?

The same question applies to the wholesale distributors, as the suppliers to the industry, where are you getting new salesmen/warehouse/ countermen/trainers. It applies to every entity that has a reason to be involved in the HVAC industry.

 

This is the meeting you will not want to miss. As a concerned owner, manager, HR person, this information will be of paramount importance to you and the survival of your company, now and in the future.

Our presenters will be Kimberly Farris, Director of Apprenticeship and NCCER Master Trainer, with Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) Pacific Northwest and Loren Watts, Watts Heating. Loren Watts has been involved in developing programs to bring people into the trades from many years.

One segment of these programs has been instrumental in connecting local construction companies with educators to provide first-hand experience and exposure to the limitless opportunities of careers in construction.

Through these experiences educators are better equipped to relay numerous career pathways in construction to their students through new lesson plans, and presentations, and industry connections.

You want to know what can be done regarding Workforce Development, then plan to attend this meeting.

Lunch is being provided by Federated Insurance
