WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT


Recruiting & development the next generation of asphalt industry workers

One of the goals of the CalAPA strategic plan is to help recruit and develop the next generation of workers in the asphalt pavement industry. The association accomplishes this by promoting careers in the industry via our publications, events, outreach to educational institutions and support for scholarship programs. This page highlights a few of those activities. CalAPA members also support this goal independently and in collaboration with others.

EVENT SPONSORSHIP


Learning & networking with potential future employers

Each year CalAPA provides free admission to its conferences and events for select college students pursuing a degree that is compatible with the industry, such as engineering, geology or construction management.

SPEAKER'S BUREAU


Promoting the industry

CalAPA helps facilitate guest speakers to job fairs, educational events and other venues where potential recruits to our industry may be present. CalAPA and its partners, such as the National Asphalt Pavement Association, provide promotional material about jobs in the industry.

IRF FELLOWSHIP


Leadership training

CalAPA underwrites a fellowship each year to the International Road Federation where a promising college student can attend a Transportation Research Board conference in Washington, D.C. and other events intended to help develop leadership skills.
