Saratoga Springs — The Saratoga Builders Association (SBA) and Capital Region Builders & Remodelers Association (CRBRA) were thrilled to invite industry professionals, local leaders, legislators, and community members as we celebrate the launch of the Northeast Construction Trades Workforce Coalition (NCTWC) at their joint mixer.

The 200 attendees included professionals from diverse business segments, and special guests Saratoga Springs Mayor, John Safford; Assemblywoman, Carrie Woerner; Assemblywoman, Mary Beth Walsh; and Saratoga County Board of Supervisors, Phil Barrett showing their support for this important initiative. 

Attendees enjoyed an evening filled with valuable networking opportunities, updates on the Coalition’s progress in furthering the agenda to promote careers in the trades with local schools.

“It was a great event and helped me understand the many programs this Coalition is offering students to educate them about career opportunities in the trades. Our kids need this,” expressed one attendee. 

“We are excited to bring together stakeholders from across the region to celebrate the launch of the Northeast Construction Trades Workforce Coalition,” said Doug Ford, President of NCTWC. “By collaborating with local schools, leaders, and legislators, we aim to promote the trades as a viable and rewarding career option for the next generation.”
