News & Notes from Your Union
Volume 18 | February 5, 2019

THEN
RECRUITING THE NEXT GENERATION

We were out and about at career fairs around our Council this past month! We attend career fairs throughout the year to talk with young people and teachers about our Union and the value of a career in construction.

In January we participated in a variety of events, including:

  • Anoka (MN) High School career fair
  • Construct Tomorrow career fair
  • Construction-focused job fair hosted by AGC of Minnesota at Mall of America
  • CTE Academy (Sioux Falls, SD) Career Fair Night
  • Minnesota School Boards Association Conference
  • Plattsmouth (NE) High School career fair
NOW
WE WANT TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR CHILDCARE NEEDS

The Council, in partnership with KinderCare Education, is assessing our members' childcare needs through an online survey.

The survey should take less than five minutes to complete. Survey answers will remain confidential and you will not be contacted by KinderCare.

Extended Survey Deadline: February 8
