Mentor Protégé Quarterly Meetings

New Format Brings Businesses Together to Problem Solve & Grow
The ICR Mentor Protégé program is kicking off a quarterly meeting series that will connect groups of business owners to solve problems together. The new format will be facilitated group discussions, involving smaller peer groups that will be assigned for the year. Each group consist of 5 – 7 participants and a facilitator. By establishing a smaller group format, we hope to build stronger relationships within the program, and provide additional mentoring outside of your regular partnership meetings.

Mentor Protégé Chair, Melissa Brown, President of Relocation Strategies, Inc and graduate of the Mentor Protégé Program, believes that this program will take businesses to the next level. “The new format will allow our members to have greater access to knowledge sharing, to help grow their business. If you are not currently in a mentor protégé partnership and want to participate, we welcome you to attend”

This is an incredibly exciting new program. Participants will not only network and work together to solve their problems, but they will also gain the tools it takes to take their business to the next level.

If you are interested in being part of these quarterly meetings email Association Manager, Ali Zuidervliet, at ali@indianaconstruction.org or give her a call at 317-686-2669.

Construction Jobs Boom in Terre Haute

City Sees 2nd Highest Gain in Construction Jobs in the US

On December 21st, the IBJ published an Associated Press article titled Indiana City posts nation’s second biggest construction job gain. The article is about how Terre Haute, in western Indiana, saw a 24% increase in construction jobs between October 2013 and October 2014. The federal employment data, which is tracked by The Associated General Contractors of America, ranks Terre Haute second in the nation at creating new construction jobs which is among the largest percentage gains in all Metropolitan Statistical Areas.

This is an amazing accomplishment for the city when you take in consideration the terrible winter weather we had last year that stalled a lot of outdoor work. Construction companies in the area, since the winter, have spent their time playing catch-up. Some of the big projects in Terre Haute and Vigo County are ongoing work on Indiana  641 bypass, student housing construction and a new track and field complex on Indiana State University’s campus, and various retail store projects.
