Labor Shortage Task Force Meets with Students

KCHBA Labor Shortage Task Force Meets with 40 Students from Cass Career Center
Members of the Labor Shortage Task Force, including Kevin Kirtley, K&E Flatwork, Richard Holtcamp, Bank of Blue Valley, and Jerry Ratway, Weber Flooring, met with 40 students from the Cass Career Center the opening day of the Greater Kansas City Home Show at Bartle Hall.  Members discussed how they got started in the industry, where the greatest labor needs exist, what employers are looking for and the long-term growth potential in residential construction.  The students were primarily high school seniors.  After a great discussion, the students toured the Home Show to better understand the depth of the industry.  For more information, please contact Beatriz at
