To Whom Are You Trusting Future Specifications? Developing the Next Generation.
Presented by: Susan Bliss, FCSI, CCS®, CCCA®, CDT®
Workforce skills gaps and labor shortages are top of mind for many organizations and firms in the construction industry. As we look to 2030 and beyond, specifiers will have a crucial role in implementing advanced technologies and innovative solutions, while working with building product manufacturers to specify healthier materials. With the rate at which the industry is evolving and the uncertainty of what may come next, a question that begs to be asked is, "To whom are you trusting future specifications?"
This session will highlight the specifier's role in sustainability and achieving 2030 goals, while challenging specifiers of today to help build and train the workforce of our future. At the end of this session, attendees will walk away with a clear roadmap for identifying and developing the next generation of specifiers.
