MCCEI Symposium: Solving the Workforce Development Puzzle

  • This event has passed.

The construction industry has been struggling to meet workforce demands for over a decade, and since the pandemic, it has only gotten worse. There are steps employers can take to overcome this and meet their hiring needs. We’ll hear from experts in our field, and other industries, on how they are setting their firms apart, attracting and retaining talent, and leading the industry into the future. Join us in-person on October 27th in a celebration of the amazing work being done in Maryland to promote career pathways in the built environment.

Solving the Workforce Development Puzzle will consist of roundtable discussions, a keynote speaker, and a networking and cocktail hour.

The Pathway Awards were created to recognize all the people, companies, and partners in the AEC industry who embody the values of MCCEI and who have championed workforce development initiatives in the built environment in the past year. We will also award six student scholarships to young people pursuing careers in the built environment.
