Further, “CFI was lucky to be invited to attend this extraordinary event to represent the flooring sector of the industry, and we were blown away by the amount of engaged young adults that swarmed the area. Their 2018 event welcomed about 1,214 students from 37 different cities, 57 schools and 15 counties!”
CFI added, “The Construction and Trade Industry has struggled to find ways to allow the youth to “test drive” careers as they can with many other industries. This is what makes an event such as this so amazing for young adults to be a part of. Most young adults do not recognize a career in a trade as viable for their future, but that is simply because they have not gotten the proper education on it. The flooring industry is a career path for young adults that would not only open the opportunity for them to make good money, but it would even allow them to become business owners. The trade itself is hurting so bad that business owners within the industry are paying for young adults to go through training to learn how to become an installer, inspector, sales rep (etc.) just so they can turn around and hire them. The opportunity is now!”
The Build My Future event is set for April 23, 2019, at the Plano Event Center in Plano, Texas.
