27 JUL-SEP 2017 AL CONSTRUCTION NEWS THE 2017-2018 ADVISORY COMMITTEE HAS BEEN ANNOUNCED. The Advisory Committee serves as the connection between the instruction provided and the students' employment. "The industry tells us through the Advisory Committee what skills need to be taught," said Core Instructor/Training and Employment Coordinator Mark McCord. "Instructors will also be able to talk directly with the committee, ask questions and seek advice. Ultimately, we hope the committee's involvement helps the industry build relationships with students." The committee is comprised completely of industry representatives, which keeps the focus on the skills and knowledge needed on the job site. "The students at the Academy are the future of our industry," said Brad Avery, senior vice president at Rives Construction Company and a member of the committee. "It's crucial that they are given ample opportunities to explore different areas of craftsmanship and in turn, hopefully turn it into a lifelong career. Through the Advisory Committee, we hope to give instructors the feedback they need to help these students be successful in a work environment. It's essential for our industry professionals to be involved in the program so students can learn firsthand from experts in their craft who have years of experience and are looking out for the best interests of their profession. As construction professionals, we should be committed to ensuring that the future of the industry is in good hands, and the students' exposure to these potential careers is critical to that future."
