Each October, construction industry professionals in HR, training and workforce development gear up for the industry’s premier learning and networking event, AGC’s Construction HR & Training Professionals Conference, and this year is no different.  The 2018 event will be held October 10-12, at The Worthington Renaissance Forth Worth Hotel, in Fort Worth, TX.  For more information or to register, visit here.

This year’s Conference will kick-off on the afternoon of Oct. 10 with a 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. Session topics include “Meeting EEO/AA Obligations of a Federal (sub) Contractor”, “OFCCP Update 2018”, and “Federal Contractor Pay Practices and Requirements”. 

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. Sessions for this year include “Labor & Employment Law Panel: Year Two of the Trump Administration & On the Eve of Midterm Elections”, “The Drug Buzz Right Now”, “How to Minimize Risk, Prevent Harassment and Investigate Complaints in the Era of the #MeToo Movement”, “Creating a Sustainable Craft Workforce Using Craft Training Programs”, “Getting Started with Film and Video to Enhance your Training & HR Initiatives” and an “Active Shooter” session.

Not to be missed this year are the Conference’s four anchor sessions.  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 his keynote session “The Evolution of Leadership”. 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 an expert panel on workforce development. This session will be informative for everyone as the panelists will share practical ideas and innovative 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.
