To complement the purpose of serving the needs and interests of the trade contractor members of the BIA, the TBAC is focusing on workforce development for 2019.
We have undertaken three major efforts for the year:
1. Working with employers, the Promotion and Placement Committee led by Rachel Hills is committed to recruiting and placing 500 people in construction jobs in the greater Sacramento area by June 30, 2019.
2. The Sierra Construction Boot Camp Committee led by Rick Larkey is working with Sierra College personnel to recruit and enroll 25 people into a Construction Bootcamp starting in September 2019 and placing them into jobs in February 2020.
3. The 2019 Junior Internship and Senior Summer Job Committee led by Amanda Reynaud is in the process of building on last year’s success and hoping to provide 125 Junior internships and 100 summer jobs to graduating Seniors.
Another task group led by Rick Wylie and Michael McCleery are developing a Builder Site Supervisor training program.
