Fine Homebuilding Launches the Emerging Professionals Event at the R/D/J Show
Celebrating those who make their living in the building trades has always been a core FHB value.
Fine Homebuilding committed to helping close the skills gap, is continuing to create engaging opportunities to interact with, and bring together, today’s veteran and emerging professionals in a dynamic setting to inspire industry-wide success. The company’s comprehensive #KeepCraftALive movement is a cornerstone program that is gaining momentum for being an industry change agent, inspiring success and creating community. All of which will be in full force, during its latest partnership with Huber Engineered Woods, at the Remodeling Show and DeckExpo, taking place at the Music City Center in Nashville, from Oct. 25 to 27.
“Getting established in this demanding and ever-changing industry can be a challenge, says editorial director Rob Yagid. “Celebrating those who make their living in the building trades has always been a core value of Fine Homebuilding. We’re continuing that effort through our Keep Craft Alive initiative. The Fine Homebuilding #KeepCraftAlive Emerging Professionals Event at the R/D/J show is just one more step, among many, we’re taking to support our community of building and design professionals. This event is an opportunity for our audience to connect with us and with each other to share insight and tactics that lead to success in this business. My hope for all of the attendees is that they leave Nashville feeling empowered and confident knowing that they’ve got Fine Homebuilding and its community supporting them as they navigate careers in this industry.”
ALL THINGS CRAFT: WHAT TO EXPECT AT THIS YEAR’S EVENT
On Thursday October 26 from 2:30-3pm, industry pros of all levels are invited to grab a craft beer and show their support for #KeepCraftAlive by joining Fine Homebuilding editors and Ambassadors for an afternoon of networking and sharing insights and tactics for achieving business.
“It is great to see an organization dedicated to closing the skills gap. Labor shortage is an ongoing problem in our industry, so the #KeepCraftAlive campaign is needed now more than ever. Huber is glad to partner with Fine Homebuilding to help bring awareness to this cause. Hopefully, with the efforts from Fine Homebuilding, the labor shortage will continue to improve,” says Stephanie Ruppert, Huber Engineered Woods.
This Emerging Professionals networking opportunity is sponsored by #KeepCraftAlive powered by Fine Homebuilding and Huber Engineered Woods and is free to for qualified attendees, but pre-registration is required to attend due to limited availability. See details below:
THE FINE HOMEBUILDING DIFFERENCE: RELATIONSHIPS ARE EVERYTHING
Publisher Renee Jordan adds, “Fine Homebuilding understands how to create value for an audience on digital platforms. We’ve demonstrated explosive growth with our social footprint and engagement over the past year among the construction trades with the #KeepCraftAlive initiative, our professional brand ambassador network, and through our partnership with SkillsUSA to award scholarships to aspiring trade professionals. We’ve accomplished this through leveraging what we’ve strived to achieve over the past 35 years– compelling storytelling, expert content, and helping the trades excel at their craft.”
