Let’s Talk Construction

Industry Cluster Forum Presented by Valley Vision

Back Event Jan 19, 2018 @ 9 am

Valley Vision, as part of its mission to support a 21st-century talent pipeline for the Capital Region, has partnered with the Los Rios Center of Excellence on a groundbreaking analysis of the construction industry cluster. Please join us to hear from Los Rios and industry leaders on key findings and to identify priorities for education and workforce programs and partnerships that meet industry needs for this important cluster!

The forum will unveil new information on:

  • Critical skills gaps especially for middle-skill jobs

  • Projected openings in high demand occupations

  • Education and training resources and supply gaps

  • Economic performance and trends

The Forum also will serve as the Community Colleges Regional Advisory Committee for the Construction Sector’s Career Education programs. Your participation will provide valuable input to:

  • Inform new Strong Workforce investments programs for construction and related programs, certificates and curricula

  • Identify strategies for a cluster workforce action plan, especially to address cyclical patterns

  • Develop more effective ways to partner with employers and build a regional voice for the cluster

This work is made possible through the generous support of JPMorgan Chase and Co, the Los Rios Community College District, and SETA, Golden Sierra Job Training Agency, North Central Counties Consortium, and Yolo Workforce Innovation Board.
