Annual Dinner and

Networking Meeting

December 11, 2019 | Courtyard Boston Marlborough Hotel | 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Like all trades, the steel fabrication industry is challenged today with finding and keeping qualified workers. To help members begin to address the workforce shortage, SFNE hosted a Workforce Development conversation during their December 11th Annual Dinner Meeting.

The program featured  Brett Melvin, the founder of Bridging America’s Gap, (BAG) a workforce development organization created to address the skills gap dilemma. Before Brett started GAP, he created a similar organization for the crane, rigging and specialized transportation industry that developed and implemented 9 career skills type events around the country bringing over 5,000 students, educators and businesses together.

As a non-profit organization, BAG works to align all sides of industry to a shared vision, and then lead them in the development of a solution to their skills gap challenge. Through collaboration with students, educators and businesses, they work towards the common goal of bringing the next generation into the skilled trades industries.
