The British Columbia Construction Roundtable (BCCR) has launched a new initiative to support the next generation of western construction leaders.
Earlier this year, the BCCR announced the formation of the Emerging Leaders Group (ELG). The ELG is intended to serve those at the intermediate stage in their careers.
“The BC Construction Roundtable recently launched their Emerging Leaders Group, supporting members with ~8 to 20 years of experience in the construction industry,” said Jeannine Martin, BCCR president. “The importance of succession within industry, and BCCR itself, highlighted the need to create opportunities for emerging leaders in the construction industry to undertake professional development, be mentored and enlarge their networks.”
Martin added that the ELG Committee is planning events for the coming year, starting with their Kick Off Event on Nov. 17, where they will be asking emerging leaders how the group can best serve industry.
The main objectives of the ELG are to:
- Create opportunities for emerging leaders to undertake professional development, create mentoring opportunities, and establish personal connections with other emerging leaders.
- Promote and provide opportunities for succession planning both within the BCCR and industry.
- Understand, promote, and grow the relationships between all sectors of emerging leaders in the BC construction industry.
The ELG will be supported by a new BCCR committee.
