The Michigan Construction Foundation is hosting the Michigan Construction Summit on January 29th, 2018 at the Kellogg Hotel & Conference Center in East Lansing, MI. 

Registration begins at 8:00AM. Event ends at 3:00PM.  The event will include light breakfast fare, plated lunch, and snacks.

This one-day conference is focused on finding ways to fill the talent pool with skilled and qualified candidates who demonstrate the right character for successful careers in Michigan’s construction industry.  With the lack of skilled construction workers and the challenges attracting a future workforce, the Michigan Construction Summit looks to inspire solutions to close Michigan’s construction talent gap.

The Michigan Construction Summit is open to any construction employer, training provider, educator, human services provider or other stake holder involved in developing the construction talent pipeline.  If you are working towards or looking for solutions to the industry's workforce problem, this conference is for you.  If you are wondering how you will hire enough workers next week or next year, you can't afford to miss the SUMMIT!

Attendees will choose between break out sessions focusing on topics like Industry-Sponsored Training, What Local Education Providers Need and the importance of Social Media, building a toolkit for developing your company's own workforce.  Industry leaders will share tactics and strategies for training, attracting and retaining the right workers.  Together we will share practical solutions your organization can implement in 2018, as well as big-picture ideas for the next decades of the construction industry.

In addition to the valuable breakout sessions and guest speakers, attendees will participate in localized round table discussions.  This is an opportunity to collaborate and share successes, challenges, and ideas with peers in your region of Michigan.  We will roll up our sleeves and get to the heart of the workforce problem at this meeting of the minds, connecting the dots between individual organizations to form the network with the strength and reach to build Michigan's Construction Workforce.
