ABC - 1st TECH COMMITTEE MEETING
Thursday, June 6, 2019, 8:00 AM until 10:00 AM
Affiliate Group Event
|Join Us for ABC’s First Technology Committee Meeting! Today, the skilled labor shortage is a major challenge for the construction industry. Construction costs are steadily climbing, and production is lagging because there are not enough workers to go around. So, how exactly do we get ready for the future? How do we get more done with less without compromising our safety? We can’t work any harder, faster, or stronger… But - We can start to leverage TECHNOLOGY! Come join Dave Skarzynski from PlanGrid (an Autodesk company), and Ben Hecht from Christo IT Services on Thursday, June 6th at 8:00 a.m. and help be a part of ABC’s newest addition, the Technology Committee. First, an explanation of what this committee is not: This is not going to be a group that sits in a circle and talks about their technology woes. The purpose of the committee is to provide ABC members with educational material about available technologies that improve productivity, streamline processes, and protect your business & customers' information from disaster. We want this committee to feature the best technologies that ABC members have to offer each other. We want to attract ABC members to serve as experts and advisors for all technology-based facets of the construction industry. We will also invite speakers from various technology companies to discuss how these solutions can help improve business processes and solve various issues presented by the ever-changing construction industry. One month, the speaker could be from a project management software company, the next, an IT services company, followed by bidding software, estimating, mobile workforce applications, etc. The goal here is to educate members on these systems and how they can make them more efficient. Want to be a part of something great? Want to help fellow ABC members with their technology concerns? Then come join us on Thursday, June 6th at 8:00 a.m. as we discuss the vision of this new addition to ABC, the Technology Committee. If you have any questions or would like to join into the committee and find out the latest additions and trends in construction technology, please e-mail ABC staff liaison Michael Krebsbach at email@example.com
