Panel Discussion featuring: Darren Ash, Executive Director, The ROC (Rebuilding Opportunities in Construction), an Accredited Youth Apprenticeship Program and Courtney Ketchie Silver, President & Owner, Ketchie, Inc and Justin Sutton, Sr. Technical Training Manager at CTE (Carolina Tractor & Equipment). The discussion will be moderated by Chris Jackson, President & CEO, Goodwill Industries of the Southern Piedmont.

Description: Join us for a moderated panel discussion and luncheon that will focus on the critical gaps private business owners are facing as they seek to meet their demands for skilled, craft labor talent.
