NRMCA Expanding the Concrete Industry Through Promotion, Advocacy, Education and Leadership

NRMCA Engages with Industry, Congress and White House

Inthe week since President Trump signed the Executive Order to establish the National Council for the American Worker, NRMCA has engaged with both the White House and the Department of Commerce to support and participate in this important initiative. The ready mixed concrete industry, like many industries, faces shortages of qualified, available workers for a range of positions, in particular drivers for ready mixed concrete delivery vehicles, and the resurgent emphasis from the White House on this issue is a welcome development.The White House has requested that NRMCA assist in securing commitments from member companies to offer apprenticeships and job-based training to new employees and its existing workforce in a nationwide effort to improve the skills and trade competencies of Americas workforce. Stay tuned for developments as we work through the particulars and begin pushing this to NRMCA members.

A week ago,NRMCAs Andrew Tyrrell and Eileen Dickson attended the House Education and Workforces forum and showcase on innovative workforce development initiatives. The forum included presentations from 23 community, business and non-profit organizations, highlighting successful workforce training and engagement endeavors and strategies from across the country.

Finally, from an industry-specific perspective, NRMCA will also work with the Aggregates and Concrete Executives (ACE) group during its Aug. 13-14 meeting. ACE will discuss NRMCAs current partnerships with external workforce groups as well as NRMCAs new Workforce Development Committee, comprised of human resources and strategy-focused executives.
