BIA is working hard for you – our members. We held our first ever series of five industry focused webinars and I want to reflect on where we are today and take a look at what we’ve accomplished together over the past few months.
With rising COVID cases in the islands, we need to stay focused and have protocols in place. Here are some resources BIA has to empower you and to strengthen your business.
The BIA webinar series provided some great tools to handle the everyday burdens that COVID has presented: best practices HR toolkits, sanitation and related procedures, and the knowledge that NAHB and BIA, with YOU, were instrumental in ensuring that the building industry remained ‘essential’ throughout this pandemic.
You also have OSHA reporting requirements and guides, our weekly COVID-19 newsletter and our COVID-19 page on the BIA website. We will continue to blast these tools out to keep you informed.
In addition, we have ramped up our education offerings as the CTC Building is now open for business. We recently held a 40-hr Safety class and we will hold another again in August. We will hold our Construction Quality Management class in July, Construction Safety and Injury Prevention, AND our incredible YOUTHBUILD PACT program will run from September to October.
We will host these great courses and more online in the coming months. This is a fantastic opportunity to make the most of your time and get the Certified Aging in Place designation under your belt. Basics of Building will be held in October - if you know anyone who is considering a career change or is curious about the industry, send them our way. We know there are many people in transition now who will be looking to try something new, so this can be a good thing, and it’s exciting! Classes in Estimation, Scheduling, and Project Management will also be held in October – and nearly all the classes just mentioned can help you and your staff get some letters after your name. We certainly want to position our members as industry professionals, so we hope to see your company name pop up several times in our registration queue.
