It is estimated that California needs at least 200,000 new construction workers. If California is going to successfully address its housing affordability crisis, what solutions will ensure shortages in the construction workforce are not a hindrance to development? This workshop will provide an overview of how stakeholders like SCANPH and the nonprofit affordable housing industry can support investments in a 21st century workforce so that we can collectively meet the demands of solving our historic housing crisis. Speakers will discuss the impact of the tight labor market on development and how the state can boost competitiveness and productivity in construction.

  • Chris Hannan, Council Representative, LA/OC Building and Construction Trades Council

  • Allison Riley, Managing Director of Real Estate Development, PATH Ventures

  • Charlie Muttillo, President, Morley Builders
