Task Force on Apprenticeship Expansion Meets

The Task Force on Apprenticeship Expansion met for the first time in November during National Apprenticeship Week. Nothing substantive came from the meeting, during which each member was given time to describe their organization and vision for the Task Force.

The Task Force is charged with the mission of identifying strategies and proposals to promote apprenticeships, especially in sectors where apprenticeship programs are insufficient. Upon completion of this assignment, the Task Force shall submit to the President of the United States a final report which details these strategies and proposals.

The merit shop is represented by Michael Bellaman, chief executive officer of the Associated Builders and Contractors.
