February 26, 2019
7:30 AM – 9:30 AM

The construction industry is experiencing record volumes of work, yet there exists a shortage of skilled labor to perform and manage the work. How will all the work get done? Where will the people come from? Where is Georgia’s competition? What are the risks presented by this confluence of events?

Construction industry executives, consultants and lawyers will discuss this major threat to the health of the construction industry. Insight will be provided into how this shortage of labor occurred, how the industry is reacting, and what the future holds. Risks associated with the labor shortage will be highlighted and mitigation efforts debated. By increasing your knowledge and awareness of these issues and opportunities to mitigate the risks, you will be more able to navigate the marketplace and better position your company to respond to these events.

As a friend of Taylor English, we encourage you to attend at no cost.

Taylor English has applied for 1.5 CLE hours.
