Registration Opens for 2018 Construction HR and Training Professionals Conference

Registration is now open for the 2018 Construction HR and Training Professionals Conference and pre-conference Federal HR Workshop to be held October 10-12, 2018, in Fort Worth, TX.

AGC's “HR/TED Conference” provides two days of education and networking for HR, training, and workforce development professionals in the construction industry. Educational sessions for training professionals cover the most cutting-edge techniques in training and development currently in use and envisioned for the future in the industry. The HR sessions help HR professionals in the industry remain up-to-date and compliant with employment laws and best practices. Some sessions interest both HR and training professionals alike.

Attendees can expect to walk away from this year's conference with practical skills and knowledge that they can begin to implement immediately. Plus, they can take away insights from colleagues who face the same challenges they face every day. Some sessions will interest both HR and training professionals alike. Sessions include:

  • Labor & Employment Law Update
  • Minimizing Risk and Preventing Harassment
  • Creating a Sustainable Craft Workforce Using Craft Training Programs, and
  • “Active Shooter” Response Preparation

Back by popular demand is the pre-conference Federal Construction HR Workshop.  Designed to help staff responsible for compliance on federal and federally assisted projects, the workshop provides practical information and best-practice advice from experts and peers experienced in the area.

Not to be missed this year are the Conference’s four anchor sessions.  During the opening session of the conference, speaker, trainer, and author Pete Smith will kick off the conference with his session “Dare to Matter: Rising to the Level of Significance.”  Rob Salome, Retired Army Colonel and former City Manager of Fort Campbell, KY, will close the first day of the conference with the keynote session. On the final day of the conference, Matt Abele of Caddell Construction will present a case study on strategic resource allocation. And to close out the conference, NCCER will moderate a panel on workforce development. This session will be informative for everyone as the panelists will share practical ideas and solutions to the ongoing workforce crisis.

General and specialty contractor staff, AGC chapter staff, and other professionals involved in workforce and professional development, education, human resources and training are invited to attend. Attendees will also earn HRCI credits.
