To train a sustainable workforce, the Young Contractor’s Forum initiated its Young Contractors Professional Institute, an intense, eight-session biweekly program from January to May that provided eight young professionals from CCIA member firms with valuable management knowledge and skills. Many CCIA companies provided support by hosting sessions and providing construction professionals to serve as adjunct instructors. To create opportunities for disadvantaged businesses, CCIA reconvened the EEO Committee. The committee participated in several joint meetings with OFCCP, ConnDOT, CHRO, and municipalities. Members actively participated in the Hartford-New Britain Busway workshop with ConnDOT, FTA and many other federal and state officials. To maximize relations between management and trades, the CCIA Labor Committee organized a negotiating committee that bargained with the New England Regional Council of Carpenters to reach a one-year agreement. Many members dedicated a substantial amount of time and attention serving as Trustees on the various jointly-administered TaftHartley and training funds. Members’ firms joined in support of CCIA’s comments submitted to the Financial Accounting Standards Board to oppose a proposed rule requiring firms participating in multiemployer pension plans to disclose additional information on their financial statements. To comply with a challenging regulatory environment, CCIA actively participated in the work of the State Misclassification Task Force Advisory Committee and participated on the Workers’ Compensation Advisory Board.
