NCCER's Construction Career Pathways Conference

Wednesday, November 30, 2022
7:00 am - 4:00 pm

Building meaningful partnerships with local industry is key to a successful career and technical education program. With workforce shortages continuing to grow, a clear pathway from school to industry is needed now more than ever. By working together, we can create solutions that forge successful pathways for students and lead them into lifelong careers.


Join the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) for our 6th national Construction Career Pathways Conference. At this one-day event, you will learn best practices from nationally recognized programs, hear impactful success stories from young craft professionals and be part of the solution through collaborative group conversations and activities.

Also, don’t miss out on our special guest presentation from the technology sector, insight into recent workforce trends from NCCER’s research team and access to a special invite-only networking reception for attendees.
