ABC has officially launched its National Young Professional Program, which provides ABC member company employees under the age of 40 additional benefits and ways to increase their involvement within the association. By participating in the program, ABC’s young leaders have the opportunity to build relationships, expand their skills and advance their careers while continuing to promote open competition and the merit shop philosophy.

The program’s mission is to shape the future of our industry by supporting the growth of the young professionals that are employed by ABC member companies through encouraging increased participation within the industry, sharing best practices throughout the chapter level, offering webinars and resources specific to industry trends and leadership tips.

Young professionals can sign up for just $50 a year and will gain access to benefits and major discounts to ABC National conferences. 

To kick off the program, young professionals who are enrolled will be offered a highly discounted rate for the 2014 Workforce Development Conference. At the conference, young professionals will have access to all of the education sessions, some of which are designated as “Young Professional Recommended,” and can attend the networking receptions throughout the week to meet with ABC leaders, construction owners, industry experts and more. 

To join the program and access the discount for the conference, visit the Young Professionals website or contact Donna Puglisi at Puglisi@abc.org or (202) 595-1785.
