C3 Supporters Come Together

The Construction Career Collaborative (C3) recently held a Sponsors’ Meeting to provide an opportunity to update supporters on progress made toward advancing the principles of C3.

Jim Stevenson, Chairman of C3, provided some highlights of accomplishments to date.  These include:

  • Enlistment of two Beta Project Owners – Texas Children’s Hospital and MD Anderson – involving
    • Four Contractors
    • Numerous Specialty Contractors
    • Hundreds of Craft Workers
  • Development of a toolkit for participants
  • An application for accreditation (under development)
  • Development of an online C3-5 Safety Training
  • Qualification of 46 Safety Trainers at 23 companies
  • Development of a job description and funding model through a loaned staff member
  • Preparation of By-Laws and Policies in order to file as a 501(c)(3) organization
  • Continued spreading the word to add other project Owners


In addition, the C3 Marketing Committee members, John Stautner and Michele Buckingham, facilitated a discussion with sponsors on ways in which C3 supporters might engage and participate in advancing C3 principles to their members and to the community.  The Marketing Committee will be working with the C3 Executive Committee to provide collateral materials to educate the industry about C3 and will be creating a press kit to facilitate communications.
