As we start a new school year, I want to share some information on an industry that is in much need of current and future members – the construction trades. Construction trades offer a variety of options depending on one’s interests and, when mastered, can become a lucrative career. Currently there is a shortage in the construction trades, and the opportunity for employment is widespread. As I work daily with small construction businesses, I am always impressed at the dedication and innovation of these business owners. My hope is that I continue to see more and more of them join this industry and my goal is to help them succeed. Together we can make this industry thrive.
