Save the Date for Construction Week 2018
It is only May, but the Construction Week 2018 is quickly approaching, and MBI is excited to be celebrating the industry during this time while inviting you to do the same. Construction Week is an opportunity to recognize the individuals in the workforce who are building Iowa’s future day-in and day-out.

This recognition gives credit where credit is due, while also sending a message to people outside our industry that this is a place where great, long-term career opportunities exist.

A statewide proclamation will be signed by Governor Reynolds in June, and Construction Week 2018 is set for October 1st -5th. You’ll have the opportunity to recognize your company’s field workers, use your social media resources to promote the industry and even order apparel from the Construction Week store. Be on the lookout for other ways to participate as the date approaches.
