The ABC National Young Professional Program was established to develop the next generation of leadership within Associated Builders and Contractors and to encourage networking between the “best and brightest” of the young professionals in construction.
In an effort to bridge the workforce shortage gap, ABC National’s program addresses the opportunities to engage both students and young professionals and assisting with leadership development at the chapter level.
The program aligns with two key objectives with the ABC Strategic Plan including:
1. To continuously grow and deliver value to a diverse and committed membership.
ABC young professional/emerging leaders program are often used as a membership tool at the chapter level. If we can provide them further benefits, this will only increase.
Our program will allow our member companies to engage the top talent entering the industry to become the future of the industry and ABC. With a successful young professionals program, ABC can stand out as the top association for leadership and professional development within the industry.
2. Be the leading force in the construction industry for Workforce Development and Training
The young professional national program will offer networking and educational events and provide resources to help the next generation of leaders excel in the construction industry.
ABC National has the opportunity to engage both the student chapters and young professionals by taking a more organized approach to assisting with their leadership development and engagement with ABC at the national and chapter levels.
