Boxborough, MA – On Oct. 13-14, The New England Concrete Manufacturers Association (NECMA) is holding a career day at The Boxborough Regency Hotel and Conference Center in Boxborough.
The event, largely organized by Ideal Concrete Block Company, will include 23 sponsors, 15 industry contractors and 150-200 vocational students. The students will be broken up into three groups and will rotate through visiting with exhibitors, hearing from a panel of industry experts and interacting directly with business owners about career opportunities in the masonry and hardscape industry.
Up to 200 students are expected to attend from Bay Path Regional Vocational Technical High School, Bristol County Agricultural High School, Essex North Shore Agricultural and Technical High School, Greater Lawrence Technical High School, Greater Lowell Technical High School, Montachusett Regional Vocational Technical High School, Shawsheen Valley Regional Technical High School and Whittier Regional Vocational Technical High School.
“Workforce development has always been a critical cornerstone to the trades industry, especially now. Our association strives to work with our vocational educators and industry members to cultivate and match students of the masonry and hardscape trades with employers where they can achieve career success upon graduation,” said NECMA executive director, Brian Scanlon.
There are still opportunities for masonry and hardscape contractors, who will be provided a table at no charge, to connect with and mentor students from these schools and meet potential employees for next season. Contact Brian Scanlon for more information at (774) 402-0653 or [email protected]
NECMA is a professional association that has a commitment to grow the masonry and hardscape industry, identifying and developing pathways to success for students and individuals through promotion, education and connection.
