MEREDA’s Morning Menu Breakfast Event – Maine’s Aging Trades & Workforce: Who is Going to Build our Buildings?


Buffet Breakfast: 7:30 ~ Program: 8:00 – 9:00 AM

The average age of our trade workers (plumbers, electricians, sheet rockers, etc.) is over 50. Like our state workers in general, our tradespeople are starting to retire in droves. How do we ensure our younger workers are trained in the trades. Our aging trades workers present a significant challenge for not only our State, but the real estate industry itself. How will this affect the labor pool for real estate and development projects?

We invite you to join the Maine Real Estate & Development Association (MEREDA) for breakfast on June 17, 2015 from 7:30 – 9:00 AM at DoubleTree by Hilton in South Portland, ME to hear from three panelists who are seeing these challenges first hand.
