Meeting Summary

Join us for GSSC's 2018 Fall Meeting, November 1-2, 2018, at the Hyatt French Quarter Centric in the heart of the Big Easy!

The workplace is changing, and competition for technically skilled craft professionals continues to stiffen as similar industry sectors compete for the same skilled workers and the current workforce ages. 

GSSC's Fall Meeting focuses on strategies and best practices models for the recruitment and retention of talent for the 21st Century workplace. Meeting topics will focus on the value of career pathways, career academies, pre-hire training, and apprenticeship as recruiting tools as well as sessions that address the recruitment and retention of underrepresented groups, including women, returning military, and underemployed. The impact of social media on the recruitment process will also be featured.

Sponsorship and exhibitor opportunities are available!

As always, there will be plenty of networking opportunities and an Exhibitor Expo to round out the two-day event.
