A Sustainable Workforce Starts With You

The Season of Giving Thanks

"At times, our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person. Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us."

Albert Schweitzer

We are blessed to work with many outstanding partners. We appreciate all who believe in our mission and those who work with us to impact the commercial construction workforce within their own companies and the industry as a whole. Your support is invaluable.

We've asked our staff to list a few people they are especially grateful for this year.

Angela - "I'm grateful for John Martin (Austin Commercial) because he is a great advocate for C3's program and has been very helpful in brainstorming the future. I'm also grateful for Nora Cassanova (Karsten Interior Services) because she is an amazing advocate for C3 and a massive inspiration for an entire generation of women in construction."

Chase - "I'm grateful to Kathi Crawford (People Possibilities) for connecting me with C3.

Daniel - "I'm grateful for Cecia Saenz (McCarthy Building Companies) and Josefina Rodriguez (Vaughn Construction). Both C3 partners have shown to have prompt correspondence regarding all C3 compliance and have been a pleasure to work with."

Diane - "I'm thankful for Lauren Harrell (Associated Builders and Contractors) because she is always happy to help answer my marketing and industry-based questions."

Ebrahim - "I appreciate Nicole Henneke (Spring Branch ISD) for being extremely action-oriented for our programs, both in her school district and outside of it. I'm also thankful for Hillary Mullins (ISEC) for being a strong supporter of SHEbuildsHouston and being a great mentor."

Nick - "I'd like to thank Bradley Rowan (Chamberlin Roofing & Waterproofing). His collaboration with the C3 leadership and training function led to over 200 crew leaders completing the NCCER Mentoring for Craft Professionals Course. I'm also thankful for Paul Landa (Community Family Centers) who has led our collaboration for the ESL Basic Course and has done an amazing job. 31 craft professionals will complete this course soon."

Reba - "Thank you to Tellepsen (1st workforce development sponsor) and Renee Landers (Bonded Lightning Protection) for volunteering on the WFD Conference planning committee and championing C3 events to the Bonded Light."

Serafina - "I am grateful for Angela (C3), for creating a positive work environment and leading a strong team."

This is merely the surface of all those who support and help us as we work toward our mission! We are so very grateful for you all.
