Texas Carpenters and Millwrights Training Trust Meeting in San Antonio

Last week, I attended the Texas Carpenters and Millwrights Training Trust meeting in San Antonio.  Approximately 15 people participated – a blend of management and labor trustees – from the major cities in Texas.  We also had a special guest, Dennis Donahue, the newly appointed head of the Millwrights Union for an 11 state area.

We had a special presentation by Kenneth Posey of the Houston Community College; his objective was to explain the relationship between the HCC and the Houston Apprentice School.  He is a fine gentleman, a registered engineer, and a former director of the Pipe Fitters Apprentice Program.  He is a passionate advocate for craft training.

He opened his remarks by distributing the  brochure and bragging about the initiative Construction Career Collaborative (C3), suggesting it will only enhance craft training everywhere.  He was genuinely enthusiastic about C3 and his remarks were well-received.  It was good to see that the C3 message is being circulated around our industry.
