ABC of Iowa Applauds Governor Branstad
for His Initiative to Triple Apprenticeship Training Funds

DES MOINES – ABC of Iowa released the following statement from Greg Spenner, ABC of Iowa President & CEO, regarding Governor Branstad’s initiative to triple apprenticeship training funds:

Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) of Iowa applauds Governor Branstad’s initiative to more than triple apprenticeship training funds. Iowa’s construction industry faces a significant shortage of skilled workers and this proposal by Governor Branstad is a major step forward in providing training for high-wage jobs and helping Iowa’s contractors find and employ skilled tradespersons. The ABC of Iowa Apprenticeship and Training Trust is the largest training provider representing the most employers in the building trades in Iowa and we look forward to working with the Iowa Economic Development Authority in providing more apprenticeship opportunities through our member firms via this initiative.
