NDA puts spotlight on business-building sessions at upcoming convention

National Demolition Association convention runs February 22-25th in Las Vegas

Two experts from FMI will lead educational sessions on identifying growth markets over the next five years and building company talent at the upcoming National Demolition Association (NDA) event. The largest exposition of demolition products and services in the world, the National Demolition Association’s 41st Annual Convention takes place February 22-25 at the Mirage Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. 

According to the association, the pair of expert speakers from the construction industry will help business executives identify potential markets for their products and services in the next five years, as well as strategies for employee retention and recruitment.  

Grant Thayer, senior consultant with FMI, the leading provider of research to the construction-related trade industries – including demolition – will speak on “The Current State of the American Construction Industry” on Tuesday, February 25 at the gathering.   

Later in the day, Dr. Shirley Ramos, also with FMI, will lead an educational session entitled “Building Your Talent Pool for Future Growth.”  

Now that the industry is beginning to heat up, there will be a battle for top talent, according to Dr. Ramos. She says her session will arm attendees with the right strategies to retain and recruit the best employees, and will also examine training and education trends, and innovations that can maximize employee performance and promote leadership.   

The 2014 NDA Convention will also include presentations from former US. Secretary of Energy Dr. Stephen Chu who will speak on innovation and energy, and there will be a common sense explanation of the Affordable Care Act and a look at NDA’s new member resources program.   

Additionally, on Sunday February 24, there will also be a Leadership Training Program for key personnel, and the day before, the Association holds it 27th annual Golf Tournament, while its Monday night extravaganza will be spectacular, with this year’s theme “NDA in Paradise.”
