19 Mar BAGL builders take BYF to the next level
The Builders Association of Greater Lafayette (BAGL) has taken the Build Your Future Indiana program, the association’s premier workforce development initiative, to the next level.
Thursday, February 28th BAGL hosted their C2E Expo at the Ivy Tech campus in Lafayette. Over 500 students were registered to attend, and the general public was invited to the exhibit halls for the evening.
The C2E Expo emphasized the importance of construction to the economy while drawing attention to many rewarding, high-skill careers available within the construction industry. The C2E Expo brought together members of the industry to speak and demonstrate numerous skills used within three core functions; Plan-It, Build-It, and Finish-It. The result was a collaboration between industry, students, and the general public showcasing construction careers that best fit attendee’s personality and lifestyle.
Some of the community stakeholders also stopped by to witness the success of the expo such as Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski, State Representative Sally Siegrist and State Representative Sheila Klinker.
The event was a major success and received tremendous feedback from teachers, parents and association members who stepped into volunteer.
