It also is the go-to body for comments and feedback regarding changes to contract document specifications and building codes.

Safety & Training

The focus for this Committee is on developing and implementing educational opportunities for members in the areas of safety and health issues, personnel management and professional development, and skills training for employees. The Committee works closely with the Vocational & Technical Centers and various state agencies to help fulfill industry and next generation activities.

Human Resources

The Human Resources Committee was created to offer local Human Resource (HR) practitioners and leaders the opportunity to share best practices and discuss hot topics that are specific to construction companies. The forum will enable companies of all sizes to feel confident in reaching out to fellow forum members for HR ideas, questions, strategies and brainstorming. Guest speakers will address hot topics such as health care reform, training & development, unemployment issues, drug testing, and legislative updates as they pertain to HR in the construction industry. There will be opportunity for open discussions, the sharing of successes and working through common challenges.

The group will meet in March, May, September, November and January on a Friday morning from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. at various member sites around the state. For more information, contact Nancy Shambaugh, Director of HR at PC Construction at 651-1215 or nshambaugh@pcconstruction.com.
