Our July Golf Tournament was a big success, and helped us raise significant funds for one of our newest charitable causes: Careers in Construction.
Careers in Construction (CIC), established in 2015 by the Colorado Springs Housing & Building Association (CSHBA) and The Associated General Contractors – Colorado (AGC-C), is addressing the workforce shortage and dropout rates in El Paso County by putting skilled vocational education back in high schools. Due to tremendous program growth, in 2019, Careers in Construction Colorado (CICC) was formed, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, serving as the governing entity of the CIC program.
Due to the generosity of our members and sponsors, we were able to present a check for $25,000 to Careers in Construction. It’s a win for our kids, and a win for our industry. Thanks to everyone involved!
