MEMORIALIZING Governor Kathy Hochul to proclaim
October 2022, as Careers in Construction Month in
the State of New York, in conjunction with the
observance of National Careers in Construction Month

WHEREAS, It is the custom of this Legislative Body to recognize
official months that are set aside to increase public awareness and
appreciation of professionals who work in New York State; and

WHEREAS, Attendant to such concern, and in full accord with its
long-standing traditions, this Legislative Body is justly proud to
memorialize Governor Kathy Hochul to proclaim October 2022, as Careers
in Construction Month in the State of New York; and

WHEREAS, Careers in Construction Month is an annual month designated
to increase public awareness and appreciation of construction craft
professionals and the entire construction workforce; and

WHEREAS, During this month, employers, associations and schools are
encouraged to conduct job fairs, panel discussions, and local community
events to inform students of the vast employment opportunities in
construction; and

WHEREAS, The construction industry is one of our nation's largest
industries, employing more than 5 million individuals in the United
States; and

WHEREAS, The construction industry needs 1.4 million new craft
professionals by 2022; and

WHEREAS, The National Center of Construction, Education and Research
(NCCER) was created by the construction industry to standardize training
and enhance the industry's image by promoting the hard work and
dedication of our nation's craft professionals; and

WHEREAS, The Merit Apprenticeship Alliance, Inc. is a statewide
consortium of more than 125 quality-driven, open shop building and heavy
construction contractors who promote careers in construction and
participate in New York State registered apprenticeship training
programs in the Carpentry, Operating Engineer (heavy equipment), Skilled
Craft Laborer, Ironworking, and Cement Finishing/Masonry trades; and

WHEREAS, The Merit Apprenticeship Alliance, Inc. is a proud
supporter of NCCER and its objectives to promote sustainable careers in
the construction industry; and

WHEREAS, The mission of NCCER's Build Your Future initiative is to
narrow the skills gap by guiding America's youth and displaced workers
into opportunities that lead to long-term rewarding careers in
construction; and

WHEREAS, The goal of the Build Your Future initiative is to shift
the public's negative perception about careers in the construction

industry and provide a path for individuals to become craft
professionals; and

WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is pleased to honor the construction
craft professionals and the critical role they play in the development
of this great Empire State; now, therefore, be it

RESOLVED, That this Legislative Body pause in its deliberations to
memorialize Governor Kathy Hochul to proclaim October 2022, as Careers
in Construction Month in the State of New York; and be it further
