The construction industry has been outperforming the overall economy in most parts of the country lately in terms of spending and job growth. But many observers are worried the industry is running out of workers capable of finishing projects already on the books, let alone take on new work. Others say the boom times are ending, or soon will, for several important segments of construction. Will the industry continue to thrive over the coming year, or is it about to take a dive? How can this information help business development professionals working in the construction industry prepare and help their companies or clients get ahead?
This lively, information-packed WebEd is offered in partnership with the Associated General Contractors of America (AGCA) Business Development Forum and the Society for Marketing Professional Services (SMPS) to provide construction industry leaders and Business Development professionals with construction market predictions from Ken Simonson, Chief Economist for AGCA. Introducing Mr. Simonson will be AGCA Business Development Forum Chair, Michael Trettel of Joseph B. Fay Company, and Michael Geary, CEO of SMPS.
