ABC Provides Resources for Training,
Safety, and Political Advocacy in New Mexico
Members and guests of the Facility Manager Association of New Mexico gathered in September to hear two representatives from the Associated Builders and Contractors of New Mexico explain how their organization brings value to the construction industry and helps train apprentices to become the journeymen that the skilled trades are seriously lacking.
Greta Schouman is the Apprenticeship Director for ABCNM. "Earn while you learn: at the end of training, most of our trained apprentices can pass the tests for their journeyman's license," she said. "Most of our students work in the field during the day and then attend classes at night. This can save a company money as they do not have to put a journeyman into a job that could easily be handled by an apprentice. Student loan debts are eliminated and our apprentices have a huge opportunity to end the program in a paid position instead of then having to find a job," she added.
ABCNM currently has 170 apprentices in 7 different trade programs including carpentry, electrical, HVAC, sheet metal, plumbing, masonry, and craft labor. "Apprenticeship is the cornerstone of workforce development," she added.
Next up was Carla Kugler, Education and Safety Director, who related the activities of ABCNM pertinent to its advocacy at the national and state level where they lobby for legislation that affects the construction industry. "Some of the local mandates we have been involved with included the mandatory sick leave requirement, and fighting the cost segregation issue where it was possible to reach back in time and assess businesses for gross receipts taxes on projects that had already been completed," she said. "We also help facility folks evaluate and improve their safety programs."
BCNM is one of 70 chapters nationally and locally counts their 156 members among the additional 22,000 members across the country. They are partnering with FMANM to sponsor the 2018 Facility and Building Operations and Maintenance Show, held this year on Friday, October 26th, 2018 from 10 am to 4 pm at the Sandia Resort and Casino in Albuquerque, NM.
