JLDC Partner Spotlight: GO BUILD Alabama

Alabama JLDC is happy to announce the continued partnership with GO BUILD Alabama! GO BUILD Alabama aims to prepare Alabama’s future workforce and expose JLDC attendees to potential careers in the construction industry! JLDC is extremely appreciative for their continued support as they help Alabama students build a better tomorrow by showing them that the future is literally in their hands.

GO BUILD Alabama prepares future skilled workers to both learn a skill and master a trade. While the construction industry is projected to grow by 19% through 2018, currently only one tradesman is entering the workforce for every four that leave. This creates strong job interest and potential for competitive pay at a young age –something that everyone can enjoy!

Make sure to stop by the GO BUILD Alabama exhibit space at the 2016 Alabama Joint Leadership Development Conference on October 18!

2016 Registration Guide Now Available!

Once upon a time, there existed a guide where registration was explained and all of your JLDC registration questions were answered. Just like Walt Disney brought Mickey Mouse to life, we’ve made this dream a reality!

New this year the registration guide also includes JLDC’s connection to classroom learning through 21st century skills, as well as recommendations for how to get your administrators, parents, and students excited for JLDC! From basic conference logistics to forms and lunch options, this guide will take you step by step through the registration process and answer those questions students are constantly asking.
