Solving the Construction Skilled Labor Shortage

By | Events | No Comments

Mike-Dykstra-SmallThe Construction Workforce Development Alliance of West Michigan (CWDA) was created by the Associated Builders and Contractors Western Michigan Chapter (ABCWM), American Subcontractors Association of Michigan (ASAM), and Home Builders Association of Greater Grand Rapids (HBAGGR). The goal of this alliance is two-fold: to present the construction industry as a smart career choice, and to provide educational opportunities for trade professionals.

Please check out the new CWDA website at www.webuildmi.com

On Wednesday, July 9 at the Pinnacle Center in Hudsonville, from 7:00 to 9:00 a.m., there will be representatives from the CWDA that will be hosting a discussion about solving the skilled labor shortage. This will be a great opportunity to learn more about opportunities for involvement. To register go to www.mygrhome.com/cwda I hope to see you there.

Construction Scholarship

By | Events | No Comments

Mike-Dykstra-SmallAs many of you are aware there is a labor shortage in our industry.  The economic recession forced many of our colleagues to move out of the construction industry and  pursue other career paths.  Now that we are facing an upswing in housing many builders and general contractors are left looking for qualified trades professionals.

Because of this labor challenge the Construction Workforce Development Alliance of West Michigan was formed.  Known more commonly as the CWDA, this group exists to market our industry, and to educate people about career paths in construction and the housing industries.  To that point, the CWDA has partnered with Grand Rapids Community College (GRCC) to offer a ‘Core Construction Jump Start Program.’  This intensive three week program will give participants the basic knowledge to be a contributing member of our workforce.

On top of this great work, the CWDA is offering 15 scholarships to the Core Construction Jump Start Program to any graduating high school senior.  Dates of the program, and an application form, can be found by visiting the GRCC website here.  I encourage you to share this link with your network.

This is an exciting program and we are lucky to be playing a small role.
