The Open Shop Committee will meet at 8:30 a.m. on March 10.  The meeting will feature a panel discussion by chapter representatives about local best-value selection initiatives.   If you are interested in speaking on the panel, contact Denise Gold at (703) 837-5326 or

At 1:30 on March 10, the Workforce Development Committee will meet and hold a roundtable discussion of current issues in workforce development.  The Workforce Development Committee will also present a session titled “It’s Not a Cost, It’s an Investment” at 1:00 p.m. on March 12.  Speakers will explain how to implement a craft training program that will add to a contractor’s “bottom line” by improving productivity, safety, attendance, and quality.
